Another weekend of virtual events brings some comedic relief to our now blurring together days. Also this weekend, a celebration of a legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, streaming of Shotgun Players' "The Niceties," and some concert livestreams. Here's what's #virtuallyBARTable This Weekend.
During these unprecedented times, 42nd Street Moon is keeping its artists and audiences connected through interviews, previews, and other tidbits of theatrical joy. This Friday at 8pm, your favorite Moon singers (and maybe even some unexpected guests) will join you for a snippet of conversation and some music from "Funny Girls."
Have you ever watched Comedy Central's "Roast Battles" and "The Roast of ...?" If so, this show is for you! The Ultimate Roasting Championship puts the best comedians in the Bay Area in a battle of whose jokes can hit each other the hardest. This a fast paced, intense, high energy, and entertaining event. Register for this free event online and the fun begins at 7pm.
If you're a fan of the music from "Stranger Things," "Kung Fury," "Drive," "Turbo Kid," or neo-80s nostalgia, then you'll love DNA Lounge's, "Turbo Drive," the biggest and longest running synthwave party in the world. To keep you sane during the lockdown, DNA Lounge is doing webcast-only DJ sets. Fire up the lasers and fog machine and dance along from the safety of your own home. The fun runs from 8pm-midnight.
Inspired by the blockbuster movie, see some of the Bay Area’s top comedians at San Francisco’s "Crazy Funny Asians" comedy showcase. Celebrate the Bay’s Asian-American culture and heritage with laughs. It's happening this Friday at 8pm on Zoom. RSVP and you'll get the secret Zoom link right before the show.
A Black student (Zoe) and her White professor (Janine) meet to discuss a paper about slavery’s effect on the American Revolution. What begins as a polite academic debate of perspectives at a liberal arts college explodes into an intergenerational clash to define “truth" when history is up for grabs. "The Niceties" is now streaming and you can join Shotgun Players for a talk-back at 5pm. RSVP for the facilitated conversation online.
For this livestream, Lissie will be in one of her favorite cities to play, Minneapolis, with her band, on The Parkway Theater's stage. Due to the pandemic, many independent music venues are struggling and this collaboration will help support The Parkway Theater. This socially distanced, playing to empty room livestream will begin at 12pm and tickets are available online beginning at $15.
Play for live cash prizes and test your musical theatre knowledge in a live Zoom trivia game hosted by 42nd Street Moon. The trivia begins at 8pm and you must join the Zoom meeting to be entered into the competition.
Let's get social.
