    Although many venues have been shuttered for the past six months over COVID-19, B-Side Live is opening this Friday, October 9, in the former Black Buzzard space in the basement of Oskar Blues at 1624 Market Street. Hayley Steiner, who paired bands with visual artists as founder of the RiNo Showcase, will act as the venue's operator and booking manager. She says her vision for the spot is simple: "Human beings need live music, and even in a time like this, there has to be a safe place for it." In keeping with Colorado state guidelines and local public-health orders, capacity will be limited to fifty people inside the venue at a time. The concerts will be socially distanced, and guests will be required to sit.

    Imagine this: You’re all fired up to go see your favorite band at Madison Square Garden, but when you get there, you have to proceed directly to your seat, order food from your phone and make a reservation to go to the restroom. And, oh yeah, the arena will be 20 percent full max. These are some of the scenarios that have been envisioned for live music to make its return to the big stage in a COVID world. “You’re just gonna be really controlled. That’s kind of the plan,” says Dave Brooks, Billboard senior director, live & touring. “And that might not work, that might not be enough.” In the heart of what would have been festival season any other summer, the concert industry has been testing different ways to keep the music playing for now. This weekend, the Chainsmokers will headline the “Safe & Sound” drive-in benefit concert in the Hamptons on Saturday, while Tomorrowland Around the World — a virtual version of Belgium’s big Tomorrowland festival — will be bringing Katy Perry, David Guetta and many more...
    LOS ANGELES -- The pandemic has brought music concerts worldwide to an abrupt halt. So an event producer in Ventura, California got creative and re-imagined the drive-in concept. "It's a completely new experience. This is not supposed to take the place of a regular concert," said Vincenzo Giammanco, CEO & Founder of CBF Productions. "When we were creating this, we wanted to have all kinds of different entertainment and my wife said, 'You need a circus.'They reached out to the Zoppé Italian Family Circus which agreed to take the show to California. "This is completely new. This has never happened before," said Giovanni Zoppé, Circus Artist and Producer. "My family started the circus over seven generations ago in 1842 and we're still going today.""We're very excited about this new adventure. In the show, you're not only going to see a true circus, but on top of that, we also have a movie that's gong to be telling our story," said Zoppé. "So it'll be a truly, truly multimedia experience.For more information visit www.concertsinyourcar.com
    If you closed your eyes and leaned back in your car seat Saturday night at the Ventura County Fairgrounds, you’d have smelt the cool salt air and heard the manic ska-funk-punk of L.A.'s Fishbone and Ozomatli. You’d have almost felt like live music was back to normal in Southern California. At the show, one of the region’s first drive-in concerts bringing live music back during the COVID-19 pandemic, cars encircled the main stage, plonked in the middle of the outdoor venue’s vast seaside parking lot (fans in the back could view the show on big LED screens). Some families, donning face masks, climbed on the roofs of their cars to get an optimal view, while others stayed in, clandestinely tailgating with takeout pizza. Over a well-synced FM radio signal, Fishbone played its ageless hits — “Party at Ground Zero,” “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” — with extra verve to rouse those in attendance in the 500 cars at the show Concertgoers honked their approval at the end of songs.

    Last week, Feyline Presents and LionShare Presents hosted the first of four Dirty Drive-In bass-heavy concerts at the Mile High Flea Market. About 350 cars with nearly 2,000 people came for the sold-out show with Peekaboo, Sully, Templo and Angelic Root. Tyler Fey of Feyline says the logistics of putting on full-production drive-in concerts during the pandemic isn’t easy, but he thought it was an absolute necessity to bring real production value to fans. “I think we did a really good job of making the production something that would be at a level of a normal high-production concert. That was really important to our team, and that's definitely what we went about executing. I think the fans really responded well to it.” Related Stories Drive-In Concerts Are Coming to United Flea Markets As Arts Organizations Struggle, Some Take Their Work on the Road Drive-Ins Are the Reel Thing This Summer While the Mile High Flea Market obviously isn’t a true drive-in with a ninety-foot screen, Fey says he and the folks at LionShare wanted everybody, from the...

    Last month, United Flea Markets CEO Rob Sieban told Westword that he had been in talks with promoters about bringing large, socially distanced outdoor concerts to thirteen flea markets around the country, including the Mile High Flea Market just outside of Denver, at 7007 East 88th Avenue in Henderson.

    Live Nation announced a drive-in concert series for July as coronavirus lockdowns have canceled arena shows and music festivals nationwide this summer. The LA-based promoter said Monday it will launch “Live from the Drive-In,” a set of nine shows headlined by country singer Brad Paisley to take place July 10-12 in Nashville, Tenn.; Maryland Heights, Mo.; and Noblesville, Ind. Concertgoers will be able to drive into the parking lots of the amphitheaters — a maximum of four people per car — and will have two empty parking-lot spaces in between each vehicle so fans can watch and party from their designated individual tailgating zones, Live Nation said. Paisley will headline shows in all three cities, while fellow country artists Darius Rucker and Jon Pardi will also perform in Nashville at Nissan Stadium. Pardi and rock band Yacht Rock Revue will headline at the Ruoff Music Center near Indianapolis. The drive-in shows come months into a lockdown that has seen concerts and festivals like SXSW and Coachella canceled globally due to the coronavirus.  In March, Live Nation canceled all of...

People will only be able to leave their...
    NEW YORK (AP) — For country star Brad Paisley, who has spent the last two decades performing live concerts for feverish fans, the thought of touring being taken away never crossed his mind. “Even as recorded music went through transitions where it was less lucrative and people were (dealing with) illegal piracy, or streaming was taking revenue away from record companies, I’m like, ‘Well at least we’ve got the live music. They can’t ever take that away.’” And then the coronavirus pandemic hit — or as Paisley puts in: “COVID-19 was like, ‘Watch me.’” That’s why the three-time Grammy-winner is so excited to be part of Live Nation’s first-ever “Live from the Drive-In” concert series, debuting next month, where fans can watch live performances from inside or around their cars with enough space in between groups. Paisley, who will headline three of the nine shows, said he’s eager to perform “No I In Beer,” a song he wrote in 2018 about “having a beer in spite of everything” but released during the pandemic to help fans cope. “(It) is perfect...
