Live Stream: Congo Square Rhythms Fest - Saturday, March 23 and Sunday, March 24

We are now heading into the new normal with live music during the Covid-19 and beyond era. Live shows will need to be flexible and live streaming is a great way to keep music going. Streams have become essential for live music junkies like RtBE. Things are (hopefully) improving on the pandemic front but live streams will be an option for artists during the foreseeable future. We will highlight various shows/streams/virtual events for your viewing and listening pleasure and as a way to help out the artists. You can check out our weekly Full Show Friday series for concerts from the past and as always, please support the artists any which way you can.

It is the Congo Square Rhythms Fest - Saturday, March 23 and Sunday, March 24.

Below is all the info you need regarding the WWOZ streaming schedule and some video to get you pumped up:
