Another week of social distancing, another week of gigging from the couch.

This week, a cacophony of sound will be beamed from lounge rooms, home studios and, in one case, a church, to soothe your soul through these trying times. From a camp cabaret to Easter hymns, we’ve got you covered.


Make your Good Friday a great one and go for a digital trip to a famous New York venue for some cabaret and show tunes. Marie’s Crisis is one of Greenwich Village’s most beloved bars, renowned for hosting the biggest stars on Broadway who wander in and have a sing by the piano. With the venue closed and Broadway shuttered the pianists from the bar are doing regular live streams to keep them and us entertained through the crisis. Some do themed sets (the Andrew Lloyd Webber one was particularly memorable), some take requests, but it is always a rollicking good time and super camp. Find Marie’s Crisis on Facebook and don’t forget to leave a tip for the pianist.

At the same time the Sydney Opera House will release the latest in their From Our House To Yours contemporary music shows. This week it is Animal Collective co-founder Noah Lennox (aka Panda Bear) in his intimate Australian debut in the studio at the Opera House. Filmed live in 2018, the show will be available for a while.
