HAWKS AND REED PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
Hawks and Reed Performing Arts Center is a multi-venue event space in downtown Greenfield, MA. Bringing the best in art and entertainment, from nationally recognized touring acts to experimental theater, festivals, community events, and more, their mission is to present music and the arts in an accessible, compelling and hospitable manner to benefit the social and economic well being of our regional, national and worldwide community.
CouchMusic.Live is the independent music lover's guide to virtual live music experiences from around the corner and across the web. As a live streaming cooperative, the CouchMusic team brings together industry professionals from around the US with one common purpose - to provide a platform for artists, fans, venues, promoters, and labels to come together and to build a resilient community in the new frontier of the suddenly digitized live music arena. The site currently features a blog of livestream previews and reviews, a high-quality virtual venue featuring some of our favorite performers, and curated listings of streams by both local and mainstream musicians. The organization strives to shed light on the importance of the grassroots scene, especially within the context of this challenging time. By connecting the silos of the industry and beyond, we aim to be an inclusive and empowering force of good in a world desperately needing guidance towards a path of unity and respect.
SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC!
Please support our live music community and the art that keeps our culture vibrant and robust! While it is not required that you pay in order to enjoy this event, we encourage you to give what you can to support the artists, venue and production crew bringing you these exciting live music experiences!
KEEP IT SAFE!
The safety of the artist and venue/production staff are our #1 priority. All CouchMusic.Live shows are socially distanced and follow best practices for preventative measures, such as mask-wearing and hand washing. It is our goal to provide artists and venues an opportunity to keep bringing live music to the world while still staying safe. We support common-sense safety measures that protect us all and, ultimately, ensure that we can continue to present shows like this into the future.
