Live Acoustics and Live Streams!

Here is a listing of Pennsylvania live music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, June 5 through Thursday, June 11.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19/coronavirus situation, many live music venues across the state are not able to host performances at this time. However, some bands and performers are staging online performances on social media from their own homes, studios and other facilities. Below are such situations that have been announced (that I am aware of); keep checking back, as this listing will be updated as new shows are announced. Feel free to take in any of these performances, and if a “virtual tip jar” situation is available, please consider tipping these performers, and support them during this time when they cannot earn income playing shows at public venues. Websites for these performers are also listed; please consider purchasing their music digitally or via CD, which is another way to SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC!

As Blair, Bedford, Cambria, Indiana, Somerset and 11 other Pennsylvania counties enter the “green” phase of the coronavirus reopening plan this weekend, a few public shows – mostly acoustic – are taking place this weekend. Bars and indoor venues are under strict guidelines regarding social distancing, room occupant capacities and other protocols. So please be patient with venues, their operators and staffs if you plan to take in any public performances this weekend.
