Prolific artist and grunge-punk legend Donita Sparks is known for her fierce live shows and biting lyrical wit. Unable to deliver her singular brand of raucous rock and roll to fans in the flesh at this time, Donita launched a weekly absurdist variety show on April 3 @ 3pmPT (same time each Friday to follow) on the “We Are Hear: On The Air” streaming network. The Hi-Low Show will keep viewers on the edge of their couch cushions with music and art performances including special guests. Tomorrow’s premier episode will feature: counter-culture icon Lydia Lunch, and punk provocateur Dani Miller.
“We Are Hear: On The Air” is a free multi-platform streaming network launched this week by artist empowerment label/publishing/management/production collective founded by multi-platinum producers Linda Perry and Kerry Brown with support from partners – Roland, YouTube, Taylor Guitars, Blue Hats Creative, and more. The goal is to entertain, educate, and raise awareness plus raise funds for those directly affected by COVID-19 and their teams whose incomes have been compromised during the pandemic.
Each video streamed will have a MusiCares “Donation” button (providing relief to members of the music community affected by the Coronavirus pandemic) and a direct PayPal.me link to support that person who might need it during these turbulent times. Audience members will have the option to give what they can to support those in real need including entertainers, crew members, and all creatives who cannot support themselves as this virus spreads.
Other shows on the platform include: “What’s Up with Linda Perry,” “Raise Your Horns with Lzzy Hale,” a performance by Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!, “The Hi-Low Show with Donita Sparks“, “Jesse Malin: The Art of Social Distancing,” “In A Lonely Place with Matt Pinfield,” Tom Green live podcast recording, “Life of Kii Arens – Pop Art, Interviews, and Music,” Live with Macy Gray, DJ Adam 12 Bravin sets, The Top Floor Interactive Dance Show, Frank Turner, Natasha Bedingfield and more.
