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!
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.
Songwriter, producer, and musician Jason Threm has a passion for music that is evident to everyone he encounters. We are fortunate to have Jason join us today on The Quinn Spinn.
The Cincinnati native, who resides in Nashville, draws on his personal journey and the many artistic hats he wears to offer articulate, thoughtful insight on the state of the music industry.
We’ll be back at Nashville’s historic Douglas Corner Cafe on Friday, March 20 for the next installment of the Underground Writers Round.
This time, we’ll have extra company!
In celebration of Black History Month, Sad Girl Music dedicated its February edition of Sad Girl Night to hip hop and R&B.
