Dosh: ‘Southside Dispatch Radio’

Daily: The promise of watching someone tinker around the basement wouldn’t normally sound very inviting, but that’s how the inventive drummer, keyboardist and electronics wiz Dosh crafted some of the Twin Cities’ best instrumental albums of the past two decades and became a one-man touring band. He started up his “Southside Dispatch Radio” sessions last week and plans to keep them up every night, all very improvised and free-form, as is just about everything else these days. (7:30-ish p.m. daily; (Chris Riemenschneider)

‘The Brave New Workshop Goes Viral’

Saturdays: The Brave New Workshop improv troupe is reimagining its live performance shtick over the internet every Saturday night.

If there’s one thing that might help get us through a pandemic, it’s a bit of laughter. (8 p.m. Sat.; (Sheila Regan)
