Join KEXP on Thursday, February 18th for Live Music Heals. At a time when beloved music venues are shuttered, and artists and others who make their living from live music are struggling, it’s more important than ever to talk about why live music matters.
Share your stories about what live music has meant to you by leaving us a voice message at 1-833-303-KEXP or by emailing email@example.com. Then tune in on Thursday, February 18th to revel in all of our cherished memories of live music, hear from music venue owners and artists, and much more.
