Our calendar of Austin-area in-person house concerts will return when the COVID-19 crisis has resolved. Meanwhile, scroll down for info on virtual concerts.
Huge thanks to Wendy Colonna and Ryan Doty for researching and field-testing much of this info.
Tl/dr: As of today (3/16/20), we recommend either Facebook or YouTube, depending on whether you already have a YouTube channel. If you do have a YouTube channel, live stream from there. If you don’t, start doing streams on Facebook until you’ve had time to create a YouTube channel and get familiar with streaming from YouTube.
All the details (to the best of our knowledge):
If using a smartphone or tablet:
If using a laptop or desktop computer:
Note for any platform: If you’re a host, stream from the artist’s account. If you need to use your own device, have the artist log into their account on your device, so the stream will be coming from their account. That way, the artist’s page or channel gets the new followers and traction for their content.
Facebook profile: Simple
Facebook page: Limited.
YouTube: Complicated but probably worth it.
