Monday May 04, 2020 – It’s been estimated that over 60% of us discover new music at free outdoor live music events put on in our local communities, while less than 40% discover new music at various types of indoor venues. Of course, that’s pre-COVID.
Now, Facebook has become the de facto source for live music, the audience left watching and engaging on our devices. These shows have also become a significant way we donate to local causes – from supporting our local artists, to supporting organizations feeding those who need it now the most.
Colorado legacy artist Hazel Miller is hosting a House Party For Hope on the Big Head Todd & the Monsters Facebook page on May 17th. Hazel’s live show from home will benefit the Inner City Health Center and Hunger Free Colorado.
The Colorado Playlist may be the largest collection of curated video playlists on YouTube! Check it out and please subsribe.
This month’s Big Head Todd & the Monsters‘ Monsters Music Monthly is in honor of the late John Prine. And of course, they obeyed stay-at-home rules.
MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING (MMMM)
You make a big difference in what gets played on the show. Every week I share some or all of the new music played on the show with you, here in the MMMM. Your rating gets factored into my decision in what to maintain in the show’s “for airplay” library.
A REMINDER: Please listen to ALL of the songs and rate them. Thanks 🙂
