How To Get Your Arts Fix While On Lockdown
The weekend is here, but the usual weekend activities are not, thanks to COVID-19. While we are all locked down, there are no plays, no movies, no exhibits, no concerts to attend.
Except there are.
It's the digital age, and there is a whole world out there of virtual and on-line performances and artist video biographies available to anyone with a computer or smart TV.
Villa Musica in Sorrento Valley, for instance, is an entire world of music classes, lessons and performances for all ages. Villa Musica is offering a live concert via satellite tonight at 7 p.m., featuring piano faculty member Kyle Adam Blair.
And then there's the case of Spanish guitarist Pablo Sainz Villegas. Because of the virus, he's stranded in La Jolla, away from his family in Madrid. At 10 a.m. on Sunday, he will debut a weekly live stream performance on his website.
Moxie Theatre in the College Area is offering plays for and about quarantine via Zoom, starting tonight at 8 p.m. with a second performance on Saturday at 2 p.m.
The Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach will re-launch its live music download store on Monday with about 100 live audio recordings, including local bands. They will run a 90-day program where the proceeds go to staff and the artists who participate.
