THE FINE ART OF SELF DISTANCING: LIVE FROM NEW YORK CITY

SEE EVENT DETAILS
"It's like Mr. Rogers meets a rock show," is how Jesse Malin describes his weekly Saturday livestream series, The Fine Art of Self Distancing: Live from New York City. Recommended by Entertainment Weeklyand named "one of the best streamed performances for the stay-at-home-era" by Rolling Stone, the series has been revamped for Season 2, and will kick off Saturday, May 23 at 4:00pm ET (YouTube). Special guest (producer of Malin's latest album Sunset Kids) will join remotely for a conversation at the bar.

Produced remotely and in compliance with all CDC and New York City guidelines, The Fine Art of Self Distancingwill relocate from Jesse's Manhattan apartment to Berlin, a popular downtown bar and "secret bunker" he created. Malin, who has invested in keeping the spirit of the East Village music scene alive, is also the co-owner of Bowery Electric, Niagara and Dream Baby, all of course currently closed.

The live, 120-minute weekly series will aim to "entertain the troops, unify, and keep our spirits up," says Malin. Jesse, who recently won three Independent Music Awards, will perform a different live set every week, backed by keyboardist Rob Clores, with conversations with guests at the bar (safely in-person or remote), and audience participation in the form of requests, dedications and a live chat.

Upcoming guests include Debbie Harry, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmush, Graham Parker, Mick Rock, Craig Finn and Alejandro Escovedo. "From the early frontier days of New York hardcore to years with D Generation and touring as a singer-songwriter," says Malin, "it's all been about surviving and reinventing. We're finding a way to overcome this and still stay connected."

There will be an optional donation, and proceeds will benefit Jesse's band, crew and to help save his downtown venues. Jesse's European spring tour with Brian Fallon has been rescheduled for February 2021, and Glastonbury has been rebooked for 2021.
