When I’m not in the WTOP traffic center, chances are you’ll find me out at a live show. Big venues, small clubs, festivals — it does not matter. I’ll see it all, which is why it’s been such an adjustment for me during COVID-19.
What’s a live music lover to do? Live concert streams! There is something for everyone, from national acts playing in their homes for charity to local faves with a guitar and iPhone trying to keep the money flow coming in through PayPal and Venmo.
It’s hard to keep track of it all, so check out our roundup of options available for you to keep the music flowing from the comfort of your couch. Feel free to give us a heads up on anything you’re watching in the live stream community by shooting me an email at email@example.com.

Dallas : Delivery of 400 free computers for students begins in Dallas Telemundo Dallas (39)
TEXAS – Two organizations in Dallas joined forces to distribute 400 computers to all those students who need it.
This is Compudot, a non-profit organization, along with TXU Energy, which began giving away electronic devices to all those who were chosen through a lottery system.
The first delivery was made on Monday, August 3, but the second will take place on Tuesday, August 4, from 9 am to 4 pm, at MLK Jr Community Center located at the following address: 2922 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd.
“The digital divide existed before the pandemic, but the uncertainty around the school year has increased the need for students to have access to technology,” said Brad Watson, veteran director of public affairs for TXU Energy.
The computers are being released to middle school students, but they live in the city of Dallas and do not currently have a computer.
To participate you have to register by clicking here and entering the website from Compudot. The website indicates that the selected people will receive a text message to notify them.
