What’s going on Wednesday? (no shows, closed venues, livestreams, more)
As of Tuesday (3/16), there are officially no shows in the NY/NJ/CT tristate area, due to a joint agreement between the three states to limit crowd capacities to 50, close gyms, casinos, and movie theaters, and restrict restaurants and bars to take-out only. Most major venues in the city had already closed as a precautionary measure, anyway. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio is also saying residents should prepare for a “shelter in place” order to be declared either today or tomorrow, which would only allow residents to leave their homes for food, medicine or exercise.
Some of tonight’s postponed NYC-area shows include Best Coast/Mannequin Pussy at Brooklyn Steel, Uniform + The Body at Market Hotel, and more.
Though you can’t attend any concerts in person, you can livestream some from the comfort of your own home, including…

Yesterday was Puccini’s La Bohème and today it’s Verdi’s Il Trovatore.
