Seven Days of Saint Patrick puts on virtual music and comedy show
Remember live music? Yes, we are all pining for that feeling of watching your favorite band jam out on a stage while sipping on a vodka soda and getting jabbed in the side by a stranger. Even the next-day hangover sounds glorious right about now.
Well pour yourself a drink because from March 17-23, 16 of Kansas City’s local artists take the virtual stage from the RINO Theater in North KC during Seven Days of St. Patrick, a local-lovin’ live music series by the Pitch Podcast Network and summerofsoundkc.com. The online festival’s acts include A’Sean, Calvin Arsenia, and Other Americans, along with comedy from Carlos Chamon, Brittany Tilander, and more.
“I think every musician has wound up in despair over the loss of live music,” says Ben Wendt, co-owner of The RINO and executive producer of Seven Days of St. Patrick. “But the truth is we’re slowly coming out on the other side of this. My hope is that COVID has caused people to realize local never left. It’s here to stay.”
“We’re all navigating the new normal, right?” Hartzell says. “What are these shows and concerts gonna look like, and at some point we’re going to need a better answer than the one we’re currently getting. I happen to think the answer is already here. I think it’s hyper local, I think it’s community based, And after you see what these incredible performers put together for this festival. *chefs kisses*”
