As we continue to weather the COVID-19 storm, we want to let you know that Underground Music Collective is committed to continually supporting the greater music community, in any way possible.
In fact, we’ve come up with a few ways, all rolled into one plan. Today, we’re excited to share it with you!
Keep the Music Playing
On Friday night, we were treated to something incredible by Anastasia Elliot.

At the moment, maybe we can’t all be together face-to-face. Even so, technology can help us share the music with one another.
Watch The Round
Sometimes, you just can’t help but marvel at the one you’re with.
With that, we check in with Los Angeles-based Greg in Good Company, who just released a new, live single on the topic.

Last week, we let the cat out of the bag that we’re going forward with a virtual version of our Underground Writers Round this month!
The online event will take place over on Facebook Live on Friday, April 17 from 5-7 p.m. CDT. The beautiful thing about this, of course, is that we can invite folks from anywhere to join in. So, that’s what we’ve done.
With that, we’re excited to share the lineup with you. Catch it after the jump!
Even in these strange times, we weren’t about to let a month go by without an Underground Writers Round.
Once again, we’ll bring it to you in the comfort of your own home!
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.
Earlier this week, our partners at Tuk Law Offices held a livestream video conference to discuss the impacts of the abrupt interruptions to live entertainment that have resulted from the global COVID-19 outbreak, and which have temporarily left countless industry professionals without work.
Join host Bryan Tuk alongside panelists Patrick Brogan, Chief Programming Officer at ArtsQuest (Bethlehem, PA) and UMC Founder Gerard Longo to discuss the impact of the pandemic on live entertainers and presenters alike.

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!
