It just makes sense that music would be thriving during this whole pandemic. Regardless of the culture, we’ve always been drawn to music during difficult times. It’s cathartic. We can express things we can’t say in words, and we need that now more than ever.

As the world goes online, we’ve only gotten more creative with ways to make music heard and this week’s edition of What’s Hot is a reflection of that. From playing an empty baseball stadium to hosting a DIY talent show, it’s definitely not going to be a boring weekend if you’re open to new experiences.

Banding Together | May 29 | 8 p.m. ET

It seems like every week there’s a new concert benefiting hard-hit musicians and artists, and we’re definitely not complaining. Beyond providing much-needed financial support, these concerts have also been producing some killer lineups that any year of Coachella would be pumped to feature.

This week’s example is Banding Together: A Concert for the Colorado Music Relief Fund. The lineup is an all-star showing of the best roots-rock has to offer, including The Avett Brothers, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Brandi Carlisle, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, The Lumineers and many more.

Streaming Outta Fenway w/ Dropkick Murphys | May 30 | 6 p.m. ET

There’s nothing more “Boston” than Dropkick Murphys, other than Dropkick Murphys playing live in an empty Fenway Park. This weekend they’re hitting the infield for a (hopefully) once-in-a-lifetime concert experience supporting the Boston Resiliency Fund, Feeding America and Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston.

Plus, the band will be joined via streaming by their good friend Bruce Springsteen for a few mashup performances. So, get online and show Beantown some love with a show that’s sure to be unique and unforgettable.

Open Mic Night NYC | June 1 | 7:30 p.m. ET

For those aspiring performers out there, this is your chance to shine. Every Monday night, Open Mic NYC is hosting a virtual open mic night via Zoom. Literally the only rule is to “keep your clothes on,” but other than that, the internet is your stage.

The weekly event has been getting quite the following since the world went online, and it’s a great opportunity to support up-and-coming musicians. Or, if you have a bit of performance anxiety, it’s also a great chance to dip your toes into the scene within the comforts of your own living room.

We Are One: New York Sports

Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson led the way on the links in Florida, while Kevin Harvick claimed a milestone win at Darlington Raceway on Sunday, May 17. Those two headlines might not sound out of the ordinary for a professional sports weekend recap show or Monday morning briefing, except for the fact that there have been no competitions for over two months in golf and NASCAR due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Playing in front of no fans and a limited TV crew, McIlroy and Johnson defeated Matthew Wolff and Rickie Fowler at Seminole Golf Club in the TaylorMade Driving Relief skins game that raised over $5 million to help those in need and those on the front lines of this global relief effort.

Harvick celebrated in front of no South Carolina crowd as he became just the 14th driver in NASCAR history to notch 50 career wins. The last Cup Series race before Sunday was held on March 8.

Meanwhile in New York, activities for professional clubs within the four major pro sports leagues remain suspended. As we wait for competitions to resume, our favorite NYC teams continue to find ways to stay in the game.

Giants and Jets

The NFL has made the most news in the past month, successfully executing a remote Draft that delivered an offensive tackle in the first round for both the Giants (Andrew Thomas, Georgia) and Jets (Mekhi Becton, Louisville). The league also ambitiously released their full 2020 schedule. The Giants and Jets will square off in the preseason on Thursday, August 13 at MetLife Stadium.

Big Blue is encouraging fans to enter a Robin Hood fundraising sweepstakes that includes playing touch football against all-time legends Phil Simms, Michael Strahan, Justin Tuck and Eli Manning and receiving a Super Bowl ring. 

Gang Green announced in April that they donated $3 million towards various recovery efforts in the New York and New Jersey area, including United Way agencies.

Yankees and Mets

Major League Baseball suspended activities on March 12, but recent reports indicate that the owners and players are negotiating a plan that could allow teams to begin play in July. In the meantime, fans are encouraged to visit “The Vault” and predict who will lead the decade in nine statistical categories for a chance to win $1 million.

If the mid-season timeline remains intact, the Yankees could see three ailing outfielders out on the diamond from day one. Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton are all currently rehabbing from injuries, but Yankees brass indicates an Opening Day return is possible for all three.

In hopes of making their first postseason appearance since 2016, the Mets signed Rick Porcello, Michael Wacha and Dellin Betances to bolster their pitching staff.

For those who would normally be calling Citi Field their seasonal workplace during home games, the Metropolitans have set up a COVID-19 Disaster Assistance Fund.

Rangers, Islanders and Devils

A league that normally would have started its playoffs on April 8, the NHL is discussing a scenario where they play select regular season games and modify their postseason structure to 24 teams.

All three local hockey franchises have participated or are currently participating in the ALL IN Challenge. Funds raised by the challenge go to Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry, America’s Food Fund, Feeding America and World Central Kitchen.

Donning the hashtag #WeAreOne on its website, the Devils are inviting fans to vote on the best photos from the season for a chance to win an autographed print of the winning photo.

Knicks and Nets

As we wait on how the NBA may attempt to restart, New York Knicks teammates Julius Randle and Bobby Portis have partnered with HelloFresh to donate $180,000 worth of meals to City Harvest. The pair are also adding $50,000 each in donations to City Harvest’s operations, which will potentially feed over 370,000 New Yorkers in need.

Over in Brooklyn, the Nets have set up emergency economic relief for hourly Barclays Center employees. The team and arena have committed to provide relief to hourly employees for the paychecks they would have earned during the season.

All NBA fans who wish to purchase cloth face coverings of their favorite squads can purchase them at NBAStore.com. Proceeds will benefit Feeding America in the United States and Second Harvest in Canada.

Continue to check your favorite teams’ sites for more information on how they are positively impacting the community and keeping fans engaged during this break in the action. Follow us on Instagram at @Attendee_Live to stay updated on the latest virtual events.

While most Memorial Day Weekends are spent with some mixture of sun, friends, food and frosty beverages, this one is definitely going to be a bit different – but there are plenty of fun events to fill up your time not spent at the lake or neighborhood barbecue.

As you’re reading through our latest edition of What’s Hot: Social Distancing Edition, we recommend making the most of these three events. Just because you’re home doesn’t mean you can’t dress up, make a nice dinner and maybe even stir up a few cocktails. We could all use a pick-me-up these days, so go ahead and go crazy. We’re bringing the online events—you’re in charge of the party. 

Here are three online events for you to check out this Memorial Day Weekend.

One Earth Live | May 23-24

One Earth Live may seem like a bit of a hippy feel-good fest, but we think everyone could use a little more of those vibes in their life right now. This two-day festival is absolutely packed with musicians, speakers and…yoga instructors (why not!) to fill up your weekend. It’s completely online, with nine different “stages” that will stream live during the event.

Appearances include John Butler, Michael Franti, Nahko, Trevor Hall, Appalachia Rising and many, many more. Plus, proceeds from the event will support artists affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Watch One Earth Live Here

The Virtual Beer Festival | May 22, 23 | 10 p.m. ET

If you’re thinking a music and yoga festival sounds a little bit too chill for your Memorial Day Weekend, allow us to counter with The Virtual Beer Festival. Yep, it’s going to be as awesome as it sounds. Some of the West Coast’s most formidable breweries are grouping up for tours, tastings, games, comedy and more. It’s all hosted by comedian Andy Milonakis.

Breweries for the event include Stone, Bivouac, Modern Times, Pacific Islander, Alesmith, Resident, Thorn, Mother Earth, Pizza Port and Burgeon. For west-coasters, the festival will actually ship you a case of beer to enjoy along with the event. For those on the East Coast, though, try picking up a few of these breweries’ staple beers at your local liquor store if you’re comfortable.

Watch The Virtual Beer Festival Here

National Memorial Day Concert | May 24 | 8 p.m. ET

Just because we can’t be with all of our friends and family this Memorial Day doesn’t mean we can’t reflect on the true purpose of the holiday. Tune into Facebook, Instagram or PBS to stream this year’s National Memorial Day Concert.  

This patriotic event will feature appearances from Joe Mantegna, Gary Sinise, Cynthia Erivo, Trace Adkins, Sam Elliott, Laurence Fishburne, the National Symphony Orchestra and more. No matter your political affiliation, this is the perfect opportunity to reflect on what unites us all as Americans.

Based on the number of online streaming events this week, it seems like we might be starting to get into a rhythm across the country. Sure, we all want to gather in person. But, while #stayathome is a real thing, different artists and organizations are certainly making the most of it. That’s why we’re back with three online events you definitely don’t want to miss this week. 

It’s easy for things to get monotonous when you’re spending more time sitting around the house. But, each of these events represents our new version of getting out of the bubble. Just because things are happening online doesn’t mean you can’t go on a new adventure. So, for this week, try something new because you never know what you might find—even online.

The New Gig | May 14, 8 p.m. ET

You free tonight? Definitely make time for the Jazz Foundation of America’s #TheNewGig, a concert aimed to generate revenue for musicians and venues who’ve been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. This event is a star-studded online festival, featuring musical appearances from Jon Batiste, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Sheryl Crow, Elvis Costello and many more. It’s hosted by Keegan-Michael Key and features appearances from Bootsy Collins, Danny Glover, Bruce Willis and a host of other celebrities. Be sure to check it out.

Celebrate the Class of 2020 | May 15, 2 p.m. ET | Facebook Live

It’s a weird time for everyone, but maybe most of all for this year’s class of 2020. In any normal year, they’d be having parties and walking across the stage to get their diploma, but instead, they’re stuck at home with the rest of us. So, show your digital support to this year’s senior class and attend the digital ceremony on Facebook. There will be commencement addresses from Oprah Winfrey, Simone Biles, Lil Nas X, Jennifer Garner and Awkwafina. Plus, Miley Cyrus will be doing an exclusive performance. For better or worse, it’s going to be an unforgettable graduating year—show your support to make it lean toward ‘better.’

KC Bands Together | May 16, 9:30 p.m. ET | Facebook Live

There is one big advantage of having a completely online music scene—you get to experience regional events you probably never would have! Case in point, KC Bands Together, an online festival to support the Midwest Music Foundation. For those not in the know, Kansas City is quite the music town. They have a rich history, and today’s artists are certainly carrying the torch. The lineup includes Kevin Morby, Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee, The Elders, Matt Pryor of The Get Up Kids and a whole lot more. Go ahead and show KC some love.

The internet can be a beautiful place, right? We’re definitely seeing the brighter side of modern connectivity, so spend your weekend with your favorite cold beverage, sit back and relax and experience something new. Cheers!

What's Hot: Social Distancing Edition — Week of May 8

Us humans are pretty darn creative, and that applies to how we’re connecting with each other during this whole pandemic situation. Our events are taking entirely new shapes, for better or worse, and we’re passing the time in entirely new ways. In other words, if COVID-19 thinks it’s going to shut down our live music and entertainment, then it’s got another thing coming. 

In that spirit, welcome to this week’s edition of What’s Hot This Week: Social Distancing Edition. We’ve handpicked three extremely unique, online events to keep you sane while you stay safe. So, instead of reorganizing your closet (again), why not experience something new with these three great events? Have fun.

320 Festival | May 8-10

That’s right! There’s a music festival to go to this weekend. 320 Festival, originally planned to be an in-person event, of course, has now gone digital. Founded by Kevin Lyman, 100 percent of the profits go to non-profit organizations that focus on mental health and suicide prevention, so you know your dollars are going into the right hands. 

To make the deal even sweeter, you get performances from Chris Martin of Coldplay, ELOHIM, Andy Frasco & the U.N. and many more. There are also panels and workshops tackling different topics within mental health.

Check Out 320 Festival Here

Magnet Improv |  The (Virtual) Armando Diaz Experience

If there’s anything that’s well-suited for adaptation, it’s improv and sketch comedy. Magnet is a staple in the NYC comedy scene, and they’ve gone fully online via Twitch to deliver their renowned comedy to the masses. 

This Saturday, May 9, would be a great place to start with The (Virtual) Armando Diaz Experience, in which the audience delivers prompts for improv sketches and the performers do what they do best. We could all use a few laughs right now, so why not support an NYC comedy staple in the meantime? If you can’t make it on Saturday (we know you can), then check their calendar for more performance dates.

Check Out The (Virtual) Armando Diaz Experience Here

Christina Tosi’s Bake Club

We’re going to go ahead and guess most of us have been spending more time in the kitchen than ever, which can be a good thing or a bad thing. If you lean towards the “bad thing” category and need a few pointers, then why not join Christina Tosi’s Bake Club? 

As the founder of Milk Bar, she’s a visionary in the kitchen and she’s delivering her knowledge on a daily basis via her Instagram. Each day, she’ll provide the ingredient list and instruction needed to create a delicious baked good. It can be the perfect time killer or date night to mix up your Saturday, or really any day for that matter.

Check Out Christina Tosi’s Bake Club Here

Be sure to check back weekly for suggestions on what to fill your weekend with during this stay-at-home time. Be safe out there!


Legendary Starters Of Yankees Opening Day

Legendary Starters Of Yankees Opening Day

featured photo: Chanan Greenblatt

The Yankees have been at the epicenter of the New York professional sports scene for over a century since the days they moved from Baltimore in 1903. From their early days calling Hilltop Park home in Washington Heights, to the present-day cathedral of baseball we know as Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York’s American League team has become the most successful major pro sports franchise in the country.

While the “Bronx Bombers” are known for historic offensive players like Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, Don Mattingly, Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez (to name a few), the Yankees boast some of the best starting pitchers in the history of the game.

As we anticipate the start of a new season on the diamond, here is a look at the best Opening Day starting pitchers in Yankees history:

Whitey Ford (7 NYY Opening Day starts, 2-3 Won-Loss record)

The “Chairman of the Board” is arguably the greatest and most successful starting pitcher in franchise history. A ten-time All-Star, Ford amassed 236 wins over his 16-year career, all in pinstripes. Two of those wins came in one-run, complete game fashion at Yankee Stadium on Opening Day in 1955 and 1957, both against the Washington Senators. A six-time World Series champion, the distinguished lefty was on the bump to begin title campaigns in 1961 and 1962. Edward Charles “Whitey” Ford was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974.

Ron Guidry (7 starts, 1-2)

“Louisiana Lightning” was a member of two World Series championship teams in 1977 and 1978. Guidry started the ‘78 campaign for the Bombers at Arlington Stadium in Texas and took home the AL Cy Young Award later that year. The southpaw hurler won 170 games over 14 seasons, all as a member of the Yankees. The five-time Gold Glove Award-winner and former captain registered his first Opening Day win on his last try, allowing just two runs and striking out five batters over five innings at home against the Kansas City Royals in 1986.

Mel Stottlemyre (7 starts, 4-3)

A five-time All-Star, Stottlemyre holds the franchise record for most Opening Day wins, including two over the Senators and one each against the California Angels and Cleveland Indians. His first two game one nods resulted in a pair of complete game shutouts. Though the righty had a renowned 11-year playing career in pinstripes between 1964-1974, championship seasons escaped him. However, as the Yankees pitching coach from 1996-2005, Mel played an instrumental role in leading the franchise to four World Series titles.

CC Sabathia (6 starts, 0-3)

Standing with his imposing 6’6” frame on the mound, Sabathia started in six consecutive Opening Days after arriving in the Big Apple as a free agent in 2009. Though the lefty went winless in all six of those starts, he led Major League Baseball in victories in ‘09, guiding the Yankees to their 27th World Series championship. Sabathia led the league in wins again in 2010, made three All-Star game appearances and won 134 games for the Bombers over 11 seasons.

Lefty Gomez (6 starts, 2-3)

Like Sabathia, Gomez started in six consecutive Opening Days for the Yanks, winning his first two in 1932 and 1933. The southpaw spent 13 of his 14 seasons in New York, appearing in seven All-Star games and winning the pitching Triple Crown in 1934 and 1937. Gomez was the day one starter for three of his five World Series championship seasons in the Bronx and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972.

Red Ruffing (5 starts, 3-2)

A longtime teammate of Gomez, Ruffing spent 15 of his 22 Major League Baseball seasons as a Yankee, and was an All-Star in six of them. Ruffing’s five Opening Day starts are highlighted by two complete game shutouts in 1939 against the Boston Red Sox and in 1942 against the Senators. The righty starter won 231 games for the franchise, was a member of six World Series Championship teams and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1967.

Roger Clemens (4 starts, 2-1)

Acquired in an offseason trade before the start of the 1999 season, “Rocket” started for the Yankees on day one in 1999. The right-hander spent six seasons in the Bronx and was a member of two World Series title teams. The 24-year MLB veteran won one of his seven career Cy Young Awards as a Yank in 2001 and represented the franchise in two of his All-Star Game appearances.

Jack Chesbro (4 starts, 3-1)

Last but not least, we end our list with the first pitcher to ever start an Opening Day in franchise history. The Yankees were known as the New York Highlanders from 1903-1912 and Chesbro took the hill for the team’s inaugural game in each of the first four seasons of the franchise’s NYC history. Though Chesbro and company never won a championship at Hilltop Park, the righty won 41 games in 1904, an American League record that exists to this day. “Happy Jack” spent seven of his 11 professional seasons in New York and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1946.

NYC Sports Guide: New York Guardians

NYC Sports Guide: New York Guardians

featured photo: Christopher Lyzcen

The New York Guardians may have saved their season on Feb. 29, edging out the Los Angeles Wildcats 17-14 at MetLife Stadium.

New York (2-2) opened its 2020 XFL campaign by beating the Tampa Bay Vipers at home, but were outscored a combined 56-9 in consecutive losses to the D.C. Defenders and St. Louis BattleHawks in Weeks 2 and 3, respectively.

The Guardians’ two-game losing streak was particularly marred by instability at the quarterback position, something that was on full display en route to their 27-0 loss against D.C. on Feb. 15.

That afternoon in the nation’s capital, veteran QB Matt McGloin – who spent four seasons with the NFL’s Oakland Raiders – offered harsh criticism toward the play-calling of New York’s coaching staff during a halftime interview.

“We need to change the whole entire game plan at halftime,” McGloin said in the interview. “There’s a lot going on right now. It’s embarrassing for us as an offense. There’s a lot of things to fix and correct.”

Unsurprisingly, McGloin was taken out of that game and ultimately lost his starting job.

Guardians head coach/general manager Kevin Gilbride – the offensive coordinator of the New York Giants during both of their Super Bowl triumphs over the New England Patriots – may have found a solution in QB Luis Perez, who helped lead the Texas A&M-Commerce Lions to an NCAA Division II football title in 2017.

In the Week 4 win over L.A., Perez threw for 150 yards, completing 18 out of 26 passes (69 percent) – including a three-yard touchdown to receiver Mekale McKay in the second quarter. The 25-year-old QB didn’t exactly light up the scoreboard, but his efficiency (as he threw no interceptions) was desperately needed by the Guardians before their Week 5 road game versus the Dallas Renegades.

Following their trip to Dallas, the Guardians will play three of their next four games at MetLife Stadium.

On March 14, they’ll host the Houston Roughnecks. They then travel to the northwest to face the Seattle Dragons, but remain home the next two weeks for rematches against the BattleHawks (March 28) and Defenders (April 4).

New York’s regular season schedule concludes at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium on April 12 vs. the Vipers.

Despite their struggles on offense through Week 4, the Guardians are undefeated at home (as of the publishing of this article) and tied with D.C. (2-2) for second in the XFL’s East Division, trailing the 3-1 BattleHawks.

Had some fun today 🙌 #OnDuty

A post shared by New York Guardians (@xflguardians) on

The Guardians have to improve their play away from MetLife Stadium to have a serious shot of advancing to the XFL’s postseason – which ends with the championship game at TDECU Stadium in Houston on April 26 – but home-field advantage will be theirs for much of their second-half schedule.

Should Perez, of San Diego, end up working out as a starting quarterback and that translates into victories, it’s not a stretch to imagine a growing number of New York/New Jersey pro football fans – starving for a local winner, courtesy of the perennially bad New York Jets and Giants – jumping on the Guardians’ bandwagon over the next several weeks.

Soon enough, we’ll see whether the Guardians can tempt some Jets and Giants fans into a spring fling.
