Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard announces daily home-studio livestream concerts

He’ll be taking fan requests.

Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard has announced that he will stream daily performances from his home studio.

“We all freaked out right now,” Gibbard wrote on Twitter. “I am, too. And while I’m proud that we’re all doing the necessary things at the moment to help flatten the curve, I know it has left us incredibly isolated. Be it with DCFC, Postal Service, or solo I have always been grateful for the honour you have bestowed upon us by choosing to congregate en masse around our music. Some of you have travelled great distances and/or shelled out large sums of money to see us play and that has never been lost on me. So in this crazy unprecedented time, I’d like to return my favour by coming to you.”

Gibbard’s streams will be based around fan requests, and hosted over on found.ee.

He also used the opportunity to encourage people to donate to Teen Fund, a charity that supports homeless and at-risk youth.

The news follows Neil Young’s similar announcement, alongside with many other musicians making the most of being kept from touring.
