With venues across Minnesota closed by the coronavirus pandemic, artists and organizations have turned to the internet to connect with audiences. The Star Tribune will run this calendar each week. To submit items for consideration, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Land of 10,000 Streams
Friday-Sunday: Who says you can’t have a music festival under quarantine? A few dozen Minnesota artists are pooling their names and talent in one virtual location with allotted 20- to 30-minute time slots throughout the weekend. Friday’s list includes John Mark Nelson, Dakota Dave Hull, Joyann Parker, Ben Cook-Feltz, Chris Koza and Jillian Rae. Saturday has Chastity Brown, Heiruspecs, Carnage the Executioner, Katy Vernon, Mark Mallman and Mike Michel. Among Sunday’s list are Charlie Parr, Lakewood Cemetery, Gabriel Douglas, Tim Emmons, Mother Banjo and Martin Devaney. There’s no cover charge and no porta-johns, but organizers are asking viewers to support the performers directly. (Noon Fri.-10 p.m. Sun., landof10kstreams.com.) CHRIS RIEMENSCHNEIDER
Patrick’s Pandemic Cabaret
Friday: The founder of Patrick’s Cabaret, Patrick Scully, is bringing the cabaret back to life. Scully will serve as master of ceremonies for a live event, offering an eclectic mix of poetry, music and performance. Among the guests are the Loft Literary Center’s Bao Phi, experimental sound duo Beatrix*Jar and playwright Marcy Rendon, who will premiere a new short play. If you’re missing the local scene, it’s a chance to see some new works by local artists. (7:30 p.m. Fri., facebook.com/patrick.scully.96, $15 suggested.) Sheila Regan
Blues Fest Live
Mondays: This summer’s Lowertown Blues & Funk Fest has been postponed until July 2021 due to the pandemic. But organizers still want to showcase live funk, blues and roots music. So they will replay highlights from past festivals in a Monday evening series on the Crowdcast platform. Third-generation zydeco stalwart Chubby Carrier, the Grammy winner who performed in St. Paul in 2018, will kick off the series. (7 p.m. Mon., register at crowdcast.io/e/4i9t398a.) JON BREAM
