CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Independent venues across the nation are struggling to survive during the coronavirus pandemic, but a virtual weekend concert series is trying to help.
A performance by The Dave Matthews Band at the Jefferson Theater is scheduled to air on NIVA’s YouTube channel at 6 p.m. Sunday.
“We’ve been fortunate in being showcased as one of the venues participating, and certainly excited to have a local hero Dave Matthews here to do it,” Jefferson Theater Booking Manager Danny Shea said.
The Save Our Stages event will raise money to benefit participating venues.
Other notable performers for the weekend include Macklemore , Miley Cyrus, and Jason Mraz.
