Like nearly every festival, this spring’s Riverwest FemFest has been indefinitely postponed because of the pandemic. But the organizers have come up with a virtual replacement. On Friday, the festival will debut a monthly livestream series featuring Milwaukee performers as well as a couple acts from outside the city.
The performances will be streamed on FemFest’s Instagram page. “This concert series is a three-part effort to fund performing artists, a mutual aid effort, and a Milwaukee music venue,” co-organizer Johanna Rose tells us.
Here’s Friday’s livestream lineup
7 to 7:30 p.m.: Ellie Jackson
7:30 to 8 p.m.: Ms. Lotus Fankh
8 to 8:30 p.m.: Desi
8:30 to 9 p.m.: Nikki Morgan (from Greensboro, NC)
9 to 9:30 p.m.: Karen & The Sorrows (from New York City)
9:30 to 10 p.m.: Sarah Vos of Dead Horses
