Since The Flenser showcase at Brooklyn’s Market Hotel is cancelled, Planning For Burial is livestreaming an acoustic set from home on Saturday (3/21) at 7 PM ET via Facebook Live. He writes, “With the FlenzCup postponed, I’m going to set up in my basement space and perform the set I had planned and I might even take a few requests. I write most of my stuff very stripped back like this— it’s not always a sea of amps and pedals like my live show— so this is a private and personal look into my Planning For Burial world. “Be on the look out for ghosts during the performance, I swore I felt someone watching over my shoulder while practicing last night and then felt a tug on my shirt.”

Stay safe, remain connected & support where you can⠀ ⠀ Amid the pandemic, our number one priority is protecting our artists and audiences as well as all the BTS crew, from sound engineers to door staff from camera operators to security. As a result, we are postponing or cancelling over 40 upcoming shows between now and the summer. This includes our first ever festival in Johannesburg which will be rescheduled for later in the year. We will reevaluate the situation as it unfolds.⠀ ⠀ This week, Boiler Room will launch a new live series under lockdown and isolation. These broadcasts will stream from artists’ homes and private spaces, direct to our audience and without the need for interaction with production teams – as we practice social distancing to remove risk from our programming.⠀ ⠀ Alongside a programme of re-ups from our archives, these transmissions are a way to remain connected while apart.⠀ ⠀ Each show will give you the option to donate. This week, funds raised are going to Global FoodBanking Network, whose global work providing emergency food and support to people locked in poverty is crucial at this time. Next week, funds will go to a different charity; feel free to send us suggestions in the chatroom, where we will also be sharing other causes to support.⠀ ⠀ Please give if you can afford to — for example, what you might spend on a night out. ⠀ ⠀ Coronavirus has exposed the underlying fragility of underground and independent music. Artists, labels, record shops, festivals and other creative small businesses are at great threat. Now more than ever, we need to find ways to support each other and the most vulnerable around us.⠀
