Neato Burrito

Here are the local spots streaming live concert performances

Live entertainment is undoubtedly one of the most missed elements of daily life, with music venues, theaters, symphonies and stages sitting quiet this year, with no end in sight. Thankfully, vaccines are on the way and provide a glimmer of hope that some entertainment could return next summer. Until then, local groups and venues have gotten creative with live online streaming of band performances, symphony music, drag shows, variety shows and workshops. It’s easy and affordable to support local entertainers while getting a taste of that which has been missing from our lives for so long now.


With such a small space at the beloved Neato Burrito and Baby Bar, COVID has basically halted all in-person service for this entire year. But those feeling withdrawals for their favorite little spot in downtown are in luck when it comes to chances to livestream shows that are now happening there. Throughout December and into January, you’ll find local shows from about $5 to $10 per ticket, with a special chance to get New Year’s Eve tickets and donate to charities at the same time for $20., 847-1234


Every Friday you can check out a live drag show performance streamed from the Globe’s in-house basement studio setup. This summer, the isolated area lovingly called “the bunker” allowed the venue to offer livestreamed shows to guests inside the bar. While things are limited to just the patio and takeout currently, you can still get some fun Friday night vibes by ordering takeout (even drinks can be ordered with food delivery!) and streaming the show., 443-4014


Promising “better than front row” seats for their Across the Miles series, Northwest BachFest is offering a variety of performances between now and April that you can stream on YouTube at any point within a four-day window. Tickets are $20 per performance for an access code, and of course your whole household can watch for that one price., 326-4942


While the latest shutdown has Lucky You Lounge going back into hibernation again with its restaurant offerings, live shows that have been broadcast from the newly enclosed stage at the venue will be available to stream through the end of December. Tickets are $10 per show., 474-0511


Music collective Imagine Jazz have streamed live performances and workshops from the Monroe Room throughout this year and plan to bring back more of those opportunities to tune in online in January.
