Last month, The Phix told you about a handful of ways to see live music virtually while venues around the Valley are shuttered. Since most places remain closed for now, here are four more digital avenues for your “live” music fix.
CCA Anywhere Family Series
Chandler Center for the Arts’ family-friendly music series features live performances by such artists as Latin Grammy-nominated Sonia De Los Santos (performing Saturday, July 25), who plays children’s music on guitar and the guitar-like jarana, and Jazzy Ash and The Leaping Lizards (performing Saturday, August 1), a music education program for students by singer and teacher Ashli St. Armant. Performances are free. RSVP on the CCA website for Facebook events.
Trunk Space Tuesdays
Almost every Tuesday night on Instagram Live, local venue The Trunk Space hosts a fun-filled show featuring multiple local artists like garage-punks JJCNV, nerdcore rapper Mega Ran, soulful singer Camille Sledge of Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra, and experimental no-wave act Treasure Mammal. Shows are free to watch, but donations can be made to the Trunk Space Artists Funds at paypal.me/thetrunkspace.
East Valley House Concerts
This group on meetup.com is based in Mesa and hosts and advertises shows by local and national artists. On Friday, July 24, East Valley House Concerts has your ticket to the CD release party livestream show for singer-songwriter Ted Russell Kamp, the bass player for Shooter Jennings, who will be joined by fellow L.A.-based vocalist Emily Zuzik. Free.
Live Nation Livestreams
One of the biggest concert promoters in the nation has been hosting heaps of livestreams (well, live streams of recorded concerts) all day, every day, by just about any artist you might want to see: Metallica, DMX, Dave Matthews Band, Elton John, Alanis Morissette, Dirty Heads… those are just a handful of the acts performing in a three-day period. Most shows are free. Visit the Live Nation website for links to daily streams and to add events to your calendar.
