Best Live Streams To Watch At Home

The Best Live Streams To Watch At Home

featured photo: Joshua Hanson

Live entertainment is one of the many things that has been changed by the coronavirus pandemic, as so many of our favorite artists have had to postpone upcoming tours and concerts. Even if it is for the best, it’s still a disappointment to all of us, especially the performers.

Fortunately, social-distancing doesn’t have to mean social isolation, and many bands are taking to various sites and social media platforms to stream their live shows. Artists are staying busy by hosting weekly, or even daily, live streams. We’ve rounded up a few of these artists who believe, even in the face of a global pandemic, the show must go on.


Benjamin Gibbard

The indie stalwart and Death Cab for Cutie frontman has been hosting a daily live stream from his home. Expect to hear renditions of classic songs from his catalog as well as various covers of current and past pop hits. Each concert benefits a charity and he takes fan requests. Win-win! You can tune in on YouTube and Facebook at 7 p.m. ET daily.

Watch on YouTube

Diplo

EDM music hasn’t skipped a beat (pun intended) during this season of social distancing, and Diplo is no exception. He’s been hosting his “Corona World Tour” five days a week, featuring various guests and his unique remixes of popular songs. There’s no better soundtrack for your self-quarantine. Check it out on YouTube, Twitch and Instagram every Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Watch on YouTube

Miley Cyrus

For a more eclectic experience, head to Instagram to hear Miley check in with various artists and celebrities. These casual conversations have covered any number of topics, and tend to veer off in just about any direction—it’s a much-needed distraction. Guests have included Demi Lovato, Amy Schumer, Ellen Degeneres and more. To see what Miley and friends are up to, tune in Monday through Friday at 11:30 a.m. PT.

La Blogothèque

For years, the filmmakers at La Blogothèque have made a name for themselves with their Take Away Shows, capturing beautiful, yet sparse live renditions of popular artists’ work. For our current climate, they’ve reimagined their videos for Instagram as Stay Away Shows (get it?).  Check in every day at 2 p.m. ET to see special performances from your favorite artists.

Watch on Instagram

Waxahatchee and Kevin Morby

Katie Crutchfield, aka Waxahatchee, and Kevin Morby have been busy on social media, providing intimate concerts that pair particularly well with an in-home evening cocktail. Their March 19 live stream was very well attended and they are planning another March 26. Get your mixers ready and head to Instagram at 9 p.m. ET for a special performance from two of today’s most essential indie artists.

Watch on Instagram

Honey Harper

Releasing his debut, Starmaker, earlier this year, Honey Harper introduced us to his unique blend of country, new-age and soft-rock. He’s stayed very active on social media during the outbreak, playing two songs at 3 p.m. ET every day on Instagram and YouTube. If you’re not yet familiar with his work, tune in and prepare to be wooed.

Watch on Instagram

Christine and the Queens

Look to Christine and the Queens’ Instagram page every day at 6 p.m. ET for what we can only describe as “the unexpected.” The theatrical, electro-pop icon has promised guests and weird concepts nightly. We’ll be looking forward to this all day.

Watch on Instagram

It’s up to all of us to stay safe, and sane, during this unprecedented outbreak. You may not realize it, but music has an incredible power to lift our spirits and add some much-needed distractions during a stressful time. We can’t think of a better way to ride this thing out with a good, strong drink and some even better music. Stay safe out there and keep up to date with the latest developments at Attendee.

Looking for something to watch at home during coronavirus quarantine? Check out our selection of what’s hot online when we can’t be out and about in the New York City area.

While we all take part in our social distancing duty, Attendee wants to focus on bringing everyone together, even when we have to be apart. So, while the usual Three Hot Tickets is on hiatus, we hope that our roundup of this week’s best live-streamed content will help you continue to enjoy music, theater, culture and a sense of community during these unprecedented times.


“Together at Home”

Supported by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Global Citizen, Coldplay’s Chris Martin put out the campaign’s first live-streamed concert, singing hits like “Yellow” and a cover of David Bowie’s “Life on Mars.” The next performance came from a suited and serenading John Legend, with a towel-clad Chrissy Teigen bringing her usual levity to the video. John summons Miguel and Charlie Puth to perform next—stay tuned.


Power Couple Live Streams

More famous couples joined the live-streaming action, like Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman with this live performance out of Urban’s Nashville warehouse. Katherine McPhee and husband David Foster have also promised daily concerts every day at 8:30 p.m. ET, sweetly dubbed the “Kat & Dave Show.”


Dance Like Nobody’s Watching (Literally)

Tune into SiriusXM’s Ultra Virtual Audio Festival, a limited-run channel set up to replace the cancelled Ultra Music Festival. Work off some pent-up energy dancing to exclusive DJ sets by Armin van Buuren, Martin Garrix, Afrojack and Major Lazer.


Bright Minded: Live with Miley

Take a break from WFH by watching Miley Cyrus’ live-streamed talk show every weekday on Instagram at 2:30 p.m. ET. Watch her discuss well-being, lead mini workouts, sing and chat with celebs like Demi Lovato—all to the end of “keeping it LIT in dark times.”


Broadway All Day

Broadway shows are a mainstay of New York City culture. Go behind the scenes and the music with Broadway.com’s “Live at Five” segment, which lets viewers delve into the world of shows like Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, Jagged Little Pill and more.


Stream for a Cause

Amy Adams joined Instagram solely for Save with Stories, a live-stream campaign that she and Jennifer Garner launched in partnership with Save the Children and No Kid Hungry. Tune in when your reading voice isn’t cutting it for the kids anymore, or if you just want to see Reese Witherspoon read “Uni the Unicorn” or Jimmy Fallon read his own story, “This is Baby.”

Top 7 Must-Watch Romantic Movies Set In NYC

Love stories set in the Big Apple are nothing new, but when it comes to choosing a perfect rom-com, these New York-centric tales make the list every time. Just in time for love’s big day, we’ve compiled a guide of must-watch romantic movies set in NYC. And whether you’re single or coupled up, grabbing a bottle of wine and flipping on one of these titles makes for the perfect Valentine’s night in.

West Side Story 

First up is the evergreen musical triumph, West Side Story (1961). Watch as Tony and Maria traipse around 1950s West 68th Street tenements ensnared in forbidden love. Well-known tunes like “I Feel Pretty” and “Jet Song” might necessitate a singing break, while “Somewhere” might even bring out the tissues.

Top 7 Romantic Movies In NYC: West Side Story

United Artists

An Affair to Remember 

Moving on to one of the most classic romantic films of all time, An Affair to Remember (1957) has crystallized the Empire State Building as a meet-up spot for distant lovers in our national lexicon. An irresistible love affair is fraught by existing relationships, but love finds a way to prevail. It’s such a classic that it even inspired the next film in the line-up: Sleepless in Seattle (1993). 

Twentieth Century Fox Entertainment 

Sleepless in Seattle 

While the title tells a different story, the film’s defining moment happens in New York atop the Empire State Building, where an Annie, a writer looking for a romance reminiscent of An Affair to Remember, meets widower Sam. The rest is history.

TriStar Pictures

You’ve Got Mail 

The Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks duo seems to be the magic rom-com ingredient. If a movie marathon is in order, queue up their hit flick You’ve Got Mail (1998) next. It’s a classic love-hate plot of email pen pals who discover that they’re real-life rivals as independent bookstore owners in NYC. Love wins out in the end, proving the duo’s on-screen chemistry once again.

Top 7 Romantic Movies In NYC: You've Got Mail

Warner Bros.

New York, I Love You

Moving into the mid-aughts, New York, I Love You (2008) is next. With a title like this, we can’t ignore this compilation of 11 mini plots spread across the entirety of New York City. Multiple directorial styles and a deep line-up of stars — Natalie Portman, Orlando Bloom, Blake Lively and Ethan Hawke — make for an entertaining entanglement of love in the city that never sleeps.

Vivendi Entertainment

Hitch

Finally, if you’re of the opinion that laughter and love pair perfectly together, turn on Hitch (2005). Will Smith’s role as an NYC dating expert to Kevin James makes for some truly laugh-out-loud scenes. Or opt for a tongue-in-cheek look at modern dating habits with Friends with Benefits (2011). Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake’s friendship heats up, portraying the complications of dating, especially in a city as big and bustling as New York.
