Streaming Alert

Pearl Jam, Brandi Carlile, and Other Seattle Marquee Musicians Will Lead a Streaming Benefit

Sir Mix-a-Lot, Ben Gibbard, Macklemore, Dave Matthews, the Black Tones....

Pearl Jam, pre-social distancing. 

If it were happening at CenturyLink or the Gorge, it'd be the local concert of the decade. But, at the moment, streaming will have to do. King 5 reports that basically every marquee musician, and a few Seahawk stars, in the region will join a Covid-19 relief concert to support All In WA, a coalition aiming to raise $65 million to distribute to 42 funds and resources in the state—everything from food security to youth homelessness to small business support. (It's already raised $20 million of that.) The concert will be broadcast at 7pm on June 24 on King 5, Kong, Twitch, and All In WA's website, where you can also donate to the fund. 

The 12 major names? Pearl Jam, Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard, Allen Stone, Brandi Carlile, Dave Matthews, comedian Joel McHale, Mary Lambert, Macklemore, Sir Mix-a-Lot, the Black Tones, Ciara, and—because why not?—Pete Carroll and Russel Wilson. I'm hoping for a virtual duet between Carlile and Carroll. He seems like he could belt. 

Updated on June 4 to reflect that the concert has been moved from June 10 to June 24.
