Even in times of pandemic worries and social distancing, our
communities are not homes for hate: That’s the message more than a dozen
musicians from across the Mid-Atlantic will come together online to share next
The virtual “Come Together” concert at 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT) on Friday, April 3, will feature live performances from the musicians’ own homes, which are scattered across Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, as well as the Baltimore and Washington D.C. areas. The benefit event supports No Place for Hate®, a 20-year old initiative of the Anti-Defamation League that is present in hundreds of school districts across the country.
Anna Claire Loftis is one of six artists joining us. See the full lineup!
Earlier this week, we were pleased to tell you that we’re working with AGD Entertainment to bring the March Underground Writers Round to you after all, via the wonders of the internet.
With that, we’re excited to give you the lineup, complete with time slots. You’ll find it after the jump!
A couple weeks ago, we had to make the decision to postpone our March Underground Writers Round with AGD Entertainment, citing what were, at the time, growing concerns about the potential spread of COVID-19.
We all know the story from there. However, even though we can’t gather in person, music and community will always find a way!
With events in Nashville and nationwide being canceled left and right as a result of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, we have concluded alongside our partners at AGD Entertainment (Zero To 60 By AGD) that it is in the best interests of everyone — staff, performers, and patrons alike — to postpone our March 20 Underground Writers Round. We find that the best way to prevent worsening the outbreak is to prevent it from entering the building, and there are a lot of unknowns about who might currently be carrying the virus. We are gutted that we have to do this, especially considering the charitable nature of this month’s event, but we do feel it is the responsible decision for all involved.
We will be rescheduling all of these performers in conjunction with AGD Entertainment at a future round to be determined. Also, we will be setting up a link for those who wish to donate to Hands On Nashville, whose disaster recovery efforts from the March 3 tornadoes still continue.
We appreciate your understanding, and hope to be able to return to Douglas Corner Cafe for our next scheduled round on Friday, April 17.

In the wake of the tornadoes that devastated Middle Tennessee in the early morning hours of March 3, all of us — UMC, AGD Entertainment, and the performers — have decided to donate all door proceeds from our upcoming Underground Writers Round at Douglas Corner Cafe to disaster relief efforts in the area.
All funds collected at the door on Friday, March 20 will be donated directly to Hands On Nashville, a local non-profit and one of the many organizations spearheading recovery and cleanup efforts following the storms that damaged much of our region. Hands On Nashville is working hard to coordinate volunteer projects throughout the city, and we wish to provide resources to help them continue this critical work.
We encourage you to learn more about the work of Hands On Nashville and get involved at their website. And, we look forward to seeing you at Douglas Corner on Friday, March 20 at 9 p.m. for a $5 suggested donation.
We’ve had one more last-minute lineup change to this Friday’s Underground Writers Round at Nashville’s historic Douglas Corner Cafe.
We have a late-breaking update to the lineup for our next Underground Writers Round, in the form of a substitution.
It seemed like just last week that we were at Nashville’s historic Douglas Corner Cafe, celebrating the first Underground Writers Round of a new year and decade.
Oh, right. We were just there.
Well, at any rate, how about we keep the good times rolling by telling you who’s performing on our February edition?
Meet the Writers
We know what you’re probably thinking…
“What time is my favorite January 2020 Underground Writers Round performer playing this Friday night at the historic Douglas Corner Cafe?”
We’re glad you asked! We have the time slots all figured out, and you can take a look at the official event poster after the jump to find them.

If you’ve been following the action over at The Quinn Spinn (particularly, on Instagram), you may have seen that we’ve been hard at work recording new episodes since the beginning of 2020.
Well, we now have enough of those episodes recorded to have the guest lineup solidified for the first quarter of this year.
