Virtual concerts to watch during the coronavirus quarantine from The War on Drugs, Vita and the Woolf and more - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

In our first week of self-isolation for the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve seen musicians adapt to the crisis in all sorts of unique ways — and we expect a lot more of that as the weeks and months progress. (Look for Isolation Drills to become a recurring series here at The Key.) Looking ahead, here are a few virtual gigs and music hangs streaming to a living room near you in the near future.

The War On Drugs’ #QuaranTones

We don’t know when exactly this is happening, but last night The War On Drugs’ Adam Granduciel posted on Instagram about a stream happening from his basement, awesomely titled “QuaranTones.” “Let’s listen to some new, almost finished songs, some experiments, some old multi tracks, or maybe we’ll just listen to Automatic for the People through a Dimension D,” he writes. Whatever that means, we’re here for it. [INFO]

Matthew Law Presents Law’s Lair Radio

Another one of the best working DJs in Philadelphia is going to be rocking the party from home in the nightly Law’s Lair Radio show. Every night at 8 p.m. ET, Law goes live on Instagram with a mix of hip-hop, soul, R&B, and generally sick grooves, and fans can listen back to each show via Mixcloud afterwards. If you like what you hear, sign up for his Mixcloud Select page and show Law some monetary support. [INFO]
