The Pabst Theater Group has announced a live stream concert series as part of an effort called #ReviveLiveMKE, “an initiative that offers new ways for patrons to support its concert venues.” The series kicks off this Thursday, May 14, at 6 p.m. with a live stream from indie rocker Japanese Breakfast that promises a mix of new songs and covers.
Tickets are $20 and all proceeds support Pabst Theater Group venues and the artist and members of their touring crew. “Additional live streaming shows will be announced in the coming weeks, as well as the potential for rebroadcasts of past live shows at Pabst Theater Group venues,” according to the press release. “Offering live stream shows is a crucial step in reviving the Pabst Theater Group’s business, given the tremendous impact the entertainment industry has suffered from the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“For entertainment fans that want to make sure independent concert venues and artists survive this pandemic, purchasing live stream tickets is truly one of the best ways to show support,” the Pabst Theater Group’s Matt Beringer said in a statement. “Reconnect with concert buddies and plan a virtual night out. It’s a great way to support our venues and relive the live concert experience we are all missing right now.”
