Hey Sonicbids community!  While we hope everyone is practicing social distancing and staying the F home, the show must go on(line)! 

We're hosting a livestream to showcase artists across the country and around the world on an ongoing basis. There will be fans, artists and industry professionals, and of course... music. Past Performers: G. Love, Stro Elliot (The Roots), Mega Ran, Francis Aud, dolltr!ck, mazie, and more! 

Just want to watch on Facebook Live? RSVP at 

The Opportunity


Selected acts will be performing 3-4 songs (15 min sets) via Zoom (specifics TBD at selection), so you'll need to have a computer, a steady internet connection, and at least an onboard camera/mic.  If you've got a home studio and want to upgrade your audio/video, we're all for that (but obviously can't help troubleshoot). 

Given that this is a celebration of music AND responsible living in these times, please don't pull together groups in one place to perform.  If you need to demo out some larger ensemble songs as a solo or duo, we understand and the crowd will 100% appreciate it.

We will make sure there is the opportunity to promote your band during your set (both verbally and on screen w/a title card at the bottom of the screen). We're asking for a $5 suggested to donation for fans -- all donations/tips will be split evenly between artists. 

The Band

  • Open to a wide range of genres, but only original music -- no covers!
  • Should be solo artists/singer songwriters or already living together (we can't encourage bands to get together...that would be irresponsible) 
  • Need to have high speed internet, or at least internet that will not cut out mid performance (TEST THIS so we both don't get embarrassed)
  • Need to be available to soundcheck in advance of the show and work out any tech issues 
  • We want bands that will treat this like a stage performance (i.e. rehearse ahead of time, have a full set mapped out) 

The Gig

  • 3-4 songs (15 mins) exact set times & lineup TBD upon selecting artists. The show kicks off at 7pm and ends around 10pm, as lineup/performance time is always subject to play you must be available to perform anytime within that range.  
  • Due to the nature of streaming/virtual shows you'll need to be ready to play at least 30 mins early/late than your given performance slot 
  • We're looking to showcase 10 bands per "show" though we plan to build a ongoing series if people want more
  • Opportunity to receive tips via virtual tip jar promoted to our audience
