You may not be able to attend concert and live shows right now, but, thanks to Crosstown Arts, you can now buy virtual tickets to see new, made-at-home videos of performances by local musicians!
Crosstown Arts launched the first ever Memphis-artist-only online platform, “Against the Grain.” From folksy blues and underground house music to R&B, pop, hip-hop and classical jazzy jams, there are wide variety of musical acts that you can enjoy from the comfort of your homes.
A recent press release provides the following details:
- Memphis musicians post made-at-home videos of their musical performances on the new website, and viewers can buy a virtual ticket to directly support musicians who are unable to perform in public during the pandemic.
- Virtual tickets start at $5, and those who wish to donate more to a musician will have the option to add additional funds to their ticket. One hundred percent of the online revenue generated for each specific musician will be paid to that musician.
- The videos that musicians submit are newly created and feature individual songs of original music, covers, or composed pieces of music.
