Even Startup Tucson, which advocates for small businesses and entrepreneurs, has jumped briefly into the concert business. The nonprofit is hosting “Live from Startup Studios,” a weeklong digital concert series. From noon to 1 p.m. daily through Friday, March 27, the nonprofit has invited local artists to perform. Proceeds from donations will benefit the Musicians Relief Fund.
“It was really just born out of wanting to respond to what artists are going through right now and give them the space to play where they could otherwise not play with all the canceled gigs,” said Sophia Gonzalez, Startup Tucson’s community and events coordinator.
The series opened Monday, March 23, with Gabi Montoya and included performances by Andrea and Pete Connolly of Birds and Arrows on Tuesday, March 24; Adam Townsend on Wednesday, March 25; Seanloui Dumas on Thursday, March 26; and Cameron Hood of Ryanhood on Friday.
