Artists Love Bandsintown PLUS
Artists are embracing the platform as well, “We found our Bandsintown PLUS show was a great way to connect with fans right now,” said Dave 1 of Chromeo.
“The Bandsintown team has been so supportive of my career from the very beginning so I was hyped to be a part of Bandsintown PLUS’ debut lineup which had a cool mix of artists that I admire as well,” says Omar Apollo.
Since launching last month, guest hosts like Talkhouse Podcast host and producer Elia Einhorn have presented Phoebe Bridgers performing a live acoustic set with Ethan Gruska; Jeff Tweedy performing with his two children followed by a rare fan Q&A; Chromeo performing a special set of fan requests from their Burbank studio followed by Ian Isiah singing a live rendition of AUNTIE, the album produced by Chromeo; Adrianne Lenker of Big Thief’s first solo livestream where she performed while her grandmother painted alongside her; Empress Of performing after Chrome Sparks from the studio that he visually converted into a stylish flower nursery; a green-screen performance by Claud featuring original illustrations; and an explosive live show with Omar Apollo, a Bandsintown 2018 Big Break artist who has since signed with Warner Records and released his debut album Apolonio to critical acclaim in 2020.
