Since The Flenser showcase at Brooklyn's Market Hotel is cancelled, Planning For Burial is livestreaming an acoustic set from home at 7 PM ET via Facebook Live. He writes, "With the FlenzCup postponed, I’m going to set up in my basement space and perform the set I had planned and I might even take a few requests. I write most of my stuff very stripped back like this— it's not always a sea of amps and pedals like my live show— so this is a private and personal look into my Planning For Burial world. “Be on the look out for ghosts during the performance, I swore I felt someone watching over my shoulder while practicing last night and then felt a tug on my shirt."
