The Infamous Stringdusters last week announced a fresh batch of livestream shows, taking place at the Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO on October 2-4, 2020. In solidarity with the hard hit independents have taken due to the impact of COVID-19 on the industry, the band is very pleased to announce a direct partnership with 60 venues and promoters in part of the aforementioned livestream event.
A percentage of proceeds from the livestream event will be kicked directly back to the on-board venues and promoters who will join the band in co-promotion efforts. With no signs of the big picture tides turning right now, this is very humbly the band's conscious effort at giving back to those who believed in them along the journey thus far.
"When we were coming up with ideas of how to make this more of an 'all-in' event, the idea to involve our favorite partners, coast to coast, felt like the perfect fit," shared Joshua Knight, agent for the Dusters "This was ideal to reach all of our fans, but also a way to help many of our friends in the independent venue and promoter business as well."
The list of venues and promoters includes: The Fox Theatre, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, WinterWonderGrass Festival, Borderland Festival, Huck Finn Jubilee, Northwest String Summit, Rooster Walk, Log Jam Presents, Deadhead Productions, Charm City Bluegrass, Old Rock House, Mohawk Austin, Zero Mile, Cervantes, Belly Up Aspen, Jamo Presents, Creative Concerts, Big Blues Bender, WI Jam, Levitate Festival, Maxx Music, The Bowls, Crystal Bay Ballroom, Bona-fide Live, Beachland Ballroom, 10 Mile Music Hall, Suwanee Music Park, Collective Presents, Productions Simple, Midwood Entertainment, Creative Concerts, Spune Productions, Parallel 44, State Theatre Portland, Jay TV, Knitting Factory, Voiceless Artists, FPC Live, The Ark, Shepherds Ford, Higher Ground, Greenfield Lake Amphitheater, The Caverns, Another Planet, AC Entertainment, Sheridan Opera House, Buffalo Iron Works, Bells Beer, Vootie Productions, Wormtown, National Shows 2 and more.
The event, which will appear live, exclusively on luck.stream, will feature two 2-set shows (Friday and Saturday) with limited capacity virtual VIP prior to each, as well as a unique, game show-esque matinee on Sunday morning.
Friday evening is billed as “An Evening With,” where the band will dive headfirst into an old fashioned, kick-ass 2-set Dusters show. Saturday will offer a deeper exploration as the band embarks on a “Classics and Covers” experience. The Sunday matinee, “Bluegrass, Brunch & Bingo”, will offer live fan interaction in an open-form, game show setting, complete with high stakes prizes such as “GUESTS FOR LIFE.”
Viewers can expect fully immersive sets each night of the stream, with production set at the same caliber as all Stringdusters live shows. Both Friday and Saturday will begin at 8:00 PM MST, with a special Sunday matinee starting at 1:00 PM MST. Fans who purchase the Friday/Saturday combo as well as at least one VIP upgrade will receive access to Sunday free of charge (at this time, Sunday standalone tickets will not be available).
