Heist Takeover VIIIThe live art company behind Fringe Festival hit plays like The Princess Show (and its follow up, Princess Rules) brings a mix of live performance and lip sync to help you connect to queer community while social distancing. Dressing up is encouraged for the event, held at 7:30pm via sidedoor.com. Not familiar with Heist? Read why we love it here.
Adam BaldwinAt this point Baldwin feels like an anchor of time and place on our otherwise floating calendars, reminding us to tap our toes every Friday as he delivers a sterling set of covers and Americana-tinged originals via a live Youtube show. This week, he's playing a day earlier but it's as gold as ever: Catch it at 8pm and keep an ear out for his newest song, "The Lighthouse In Little Lorraine," which, TBQH, is the closest any Maritimer will ever get to writing a tune like "Atlantic City."

Rich AucoinHe makes indie pop so slick it's space-age, but you'll get a hangnail digging into its ragged edges: That mix is why Aucoin's always being compared to Daft Punk and Arcade Fire—it's also why you'll wanna tune into his Facebook Livestream at 10pm to throw a living room dance party for one like no other.
