If you live in the area of Portland, Oregon, have time free during school hours, and want to meet up to play music, drop me a line! Here’s my weekday morning music pitch.
I’m livestreaming a free concert from my living room on the last Saturday of each month at 2 pm Pacific Time. I use Streamyard to broadcast simultaneously on multiple platforms, and I can see your comments/questions from any of them on the screen in front of me. You can follow me and tune in to my broadcasts on Twitch, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.
Plans are afoot for a major recording project, set to happen during the last half of January in Hawaii. The one with the home studio is there, and the rest of us just need to get there. If you can help make the Pacific Island Sessions Recording Project a reality and donate towards our travel expenses, that would be wonderful.
I’ve set up a crowdfunder in the hopes of obtaining a fretted electric cello, with which I want to make lots of cool music, if I can get my hands on one.
If you join my email list and/or follow me on Songkick you can stay on top of future concerts in your area, when I’m touring. And if you might be up for organizing a gig, please get in touch! The tours are crowdsourced, just like everything else.
New songs, rants, blog posts, interviews, and concerts go out to my email list approximately weekly, most of which can be found if you look for This Week with David Rovics on various platforms where podcasts can be found, or at davidrovics.com/thisweek. Written versions of my rants often also go out on Counterpunch.
I post songs related to this date in history and other things regularly on Twitter, Reddit, YouTube, and Facebook, where there’s a David Rovics Group. I also post regularly on Patreon, Soundcloud and Instagram.
Mostly I put out content for free, but for members of my Community-Supported Art program I also provide cool, exclusive materials, both digital and physical. Members of my CSA who signed up through my website as well as patrons on Patreon, subscribers on Bandcamp and members on YouTube (click “Join”) make it possible for me to continue doing this full-time.
