Alex Cuba Live Stream
Time & Location
About the Event
The May 1 show will feature Alex Cuba (co-presented by Kultrún World Music Festival and Neruda Arts) and Clear Mortifee (presented by URGNT.CA). Streaming on Facebook URGNT and Maclean's facebook pages.
URGNT LIVE is an ad hoc crowd-funded livestream series of 19 concerts in empty venues created in response to the covid-19 outbreak. The goal is:
- to unify the arts industry in Toronto (musicians, presenters, technicians, organizers) in a safe and creative way
- to raise money to pay a nominal fee to all involved parties to help with lost gigs/wages as a result of the quarantine
- to document this bizarre period in history in our city
- to make compelling content available to audiences when we need it most
For the next 3 weeks, we'll go into 19 closed concert venues with 19 iconic Toronto bands whose tours have been cancelled and livestream a 40 minute set. You've never seen these artists like this. You've never seen these venues like this.
Urgent times call for urgent creativity. Our artists will lead the way.
The videos are free, but the project is not. To pay the artists, technicians, venues, and organizers who brought you this content, go here:
