Wenigstens eine schöne Seite hat die aktuelle Coronakrise: Hauskonzerte werden zum großen Trend in Zeiten der heimischen Selbstisolation. Auch Ben Gibbard macht mit: der Frontmann von Death Cab for Cutie wollte in den kommenden Wochen eigentlich auf eine Solotour gehen und hat nun angekündigt, stattdessen in der nächsten Zeit täglich Songs in seinem Homestudio zu spielen und diese Sessions über den Facebook- und YouTube-Kanal von Death Cab for Cutie live in die Welt zu streamen. Die Streams – betitelt "Live From Home" – finden um Mitternacht unserer Zeit statt – das perfekte Betthupferl also! Alternativ könnt ihr Sessions im Anschluss auch on-demand anschauen – siehe unten.

Hier lest ihr Bens persönliches Statement:

Hey Everyone, 

I know you are all really freaked out right now. I am too. And while I’m proud that we’re all doing the necessary things at the moment to help flatten the curve, I know it has left us all incredibly isolated. But because we’re all going through this nightmare together we are quite literally NOT alone. Our lives and stories are all linked, maybe more now than they have ever been. 

Be it with DCFC, Postal Service, or solo I have always been grateful for the honor you have bestowed upon us by choosing to congregate en masse around our music. Some of you have traveled great distances and/or shelled out large sums of money to see us play and that has never been lost on me. So in this crazy and unprecedented time, I’d like to return the favor by coming to YOU. 

For the next few weeks I will be playing songs everyday from my home studio. We will be streaming on YouTube at 4pm PST daily. We’re still working out the details but I’m hoping to take some requests and maybe even have a guest or two stop by digitally. The first show will be tomorrow. It will assuredly be a little wonky and glitchy but we’re gonna do our best. 

See You Tomorrow.
