Live United Live 2 Virtual Benefit This Weekend!

Here is a listing of Pennsylvania live music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, December 4 through Thursday, December 10.

Due to COVID-19-related restrictions, many live music venues across the area are still not able to host performances at this time. The listing below includes both area live public shows and online live-streaming shows; keep checking back, as this listing will be updated as new shows are announced. If you are attending a public show, be aware that seating and admission may be limited due to restrictions, and masks and social distancing may be required. Please respect others’ personal space if they wish to socially distance from others. For online performances, if a “virtual tip jar” situation is available during live streams, 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!

One of the live-streaming highlights this weekend is the “Live United Live 2” virtual benefit concert on Facebook, presented by the Centre County United Way and The Band Junkies. The event will feature performances from 20 different bands and performers from throughout Centre County, donating their talents to help out Centre County United Way during the holiday season. Information will be provided during the concert on how viewers can donate to the cause. This follows the initial “Live United Live” event in April, which raised more than $18,000 for Centre County United Way. See the listing below for the list of performers during this event.
