The BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival was canceled this year, like pretty much everything else, because of COVID-19, but they've just announced they'll be holding a two-day virtual festival on July 25 & 26 from 8 - 9:30 PM ET each night. They're calling it BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival: Live Everywhere and it will feature performances from Common, Angelique Kidjo, Lila Downs, The Tallest Man on Earth, Yemi Alade, Kes, Junglepussy, Buscabulla, and Madison McFerrin, plus a DJ set from Questlove.

You'll be able to watch via BRIC's YouTube and Facebook channels, and it will be on cable, too. Details are here.

The Tallest Man on Earth has been doing a series of livestream shows during lockdown, where he's covered Nick Cave, John Lennon, Sufjan Stevens and more.
