We're excited to have teamed up with Wasserman Music and Twitch to present a new virtual concert series, "There Is Light." Over the course of the next few months, twenty 90 minute concerts will stream on Twitch, LIVE from venues in the US and UK. They're professionally filmed with multiple cameras and free to watch, and we're kicking things off with a bang TONIGHT (5/5) with a set from Perfume Genius, streaming from The Lodge Room in LA at 8 PM ET. Recent Run for Cover signee Mini Trees, aka Los Angeles songwriter Lexi Vega, opens.

Other upcoming performances in the series include Best Coast, JPEGMAFIA, Porches, Cautious Clay, Jade Bird, and more. You can see the lineup so far below.

UPDATE: serpentwithfeet has replaced JPEGMAFIA on the May 25 episode, and Mr. Eazi opens.

Following the headliner's set, there will be a moderated Q&A where you can ask questions. No live, in-person audiences are planned, though this is subject to change based on local COVID-19 conditions and protocols.

Trey Many, Senior Vice President at Wasserman Music, says, "Twitch is such an exciting platform for live music, and they're the perfect partner for There is Light. Fans will tune in to see these shows happen, live in real time. They'll get to interact with each other and with the artists. They'll get to see some amazing established bands, along with some super exciting new acts. Immediacy, community, discovery, and hope are all the things we want our There is Light channel to embody, and we can't wait to share these shows with the world!"

Tune in HERE at 8 PM ET tonight to see Perfume Genius, and stay tuned for more updates and additions.
