UPDATE: "All In WA" has been rescheduled to June 24. Organizers write:
With the events that have taken place over the past several days, built on generations of trauma and violence, the organizers of All In WA have decided to reschedule All In WA: A Concert for COVID-19 Relief to Wednesday, June 24.
We recognize the pain and injustice the Black and African American community is facing, once again, and the need to honor the ongoing marches, protests, and organizing. We also want to give space for our community to focus on what matters most at the moment; acknowledging and addressing systemic racism and violence that dehumanizes Black people and families, and taking steps to build to a new reality. We recognize that for many in our community and country, this grief and trauma are nothing new, and the effects are compounding.
Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews, Ben Gibbard, Brandi Carlile, Sir Mix-A-Lot, and more artists with roots in Seattle will play the "All In WA: A Concert for COVID-19 Relief" on June 7 at 7 PM Pacific (10 PM Eastern). Presented by Amazon, the benefit will also feature Ciara & Russell Wilson, Macklemore, Pete Carroll, Joel McHale, Allen Stone, Mary Lambert, The Black Tones, and more to be announced.
The concert will be broadcast via Amazon's Twitch account, as well as local NBC affiliates KING 5 and KONG. An archive of the concert will also be available on Amazon Prime Video after the initial airing.
Proceeds benefit All in WA, which provides "critical and emergency support for workers and families most affected across Washington State."
Speaking of Ben Gibbard, his weekly solo livestream performances have something to look forward to every Thursday. Tonight's (5/28), sadly, will be the last weekly one Ben does before moving to something "slightly less frequent." You can watch his two most recent livestreams below.
