Angel Olsen performing ‘Half Way Home’ & rarities on livestream
Angel Olsen's tour supporting her 2019 album All Mirrors was, like many others, cancelled amid the coronavirus pandemic. She did a livestreamed concert back in April that featured performances from throughout her catalog, as well as covers of Roxy Music and Bruce Springsteen, and some new material. Now she's announced a second virtual show, this time focusing on her 2012 sophomore LP Half Way Home. She'll be performing it "almost in its entirety," along with "other rarities," from Asheville, NC's The Church at Echo Mountain Recording, on Thursday, June 18 at 9 PM ET (6 PM PT). Tickets are on sale now, and a portion of proceeds will go to the YWCA Ashevile: "a local organization whose mission is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all."
The stream is the first in a planned series called "Cosmic Streams," and here's more about it from Angel:
Announcing COSMIC STREAMS - a series of performances in special venues around Asheville, NC shot and directed by my longtime collaborator Ashley Connor. For Cosmic Streams 1 - I will be performing Half Way Home (almost in its entirety) and other rarities live from the Church at Echo Mountain Recording on June 18 at 9pm ET / 6pm PT. The stream will be viewable for 48 hours from original air time. Tickets are $15. $25 ticket includes a download of the audio of the stream. And $45 gets you a ticket, a download, and a limited version of the Half Way Home LP exclusive to this stream with inverse artwork, white vinyl, and a postcard insert with the original photo that inspired the front cover drawing. A portion of the proceeds will be going to YWCA Asheville (@ywcaofavl) - a local organization whose mission is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
