Bands and Fried Chicken Come Together For Birdcall Lockdown

Aside from coronavirus, whose effects have been wide-reaching and inescapable, live streaming in the now-bustling virtual world has become the cultural trend du jour. A means for fans and artists to connect from the comfort of their own homes, live streaming has provided a meaningful and downright enjoyable distraction from the situation at hand.  Now, none other than the popular chicken joint Birdcall has joined in on the action, bringing bands and their fried birds together for what they’ve dubbed Birdcall Lockdown.

The music series seeks to bring together (as far as social distancing goes) a community of musicians to perform at 8 p.m. every week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday on the Birdcall Facebook and Instagram pages. Birdcall will also provide meals to artists they work with. Thus far, Neoma, Wildermiss and Whitacre have all flown through sets on Birdcall Lockdown, and this week’s series is set to feature Rob Drabkin, Zach Heckendorf and VYNYL, with Ramakhandra, Babelord and many others down the road.

“Music has always been at the center of our heart at Birdcall,” says Sarah Shepard, Communications Manager for Birdcall. “To support local Denver musicians and to build a sense of community from a distance during this trying time, we launched the ‘Birdcall Lockdown’ live music series every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 8 p.m. MST on Birdcall’s Facebook and Instagram pages. We’ve partnered with some extremely talented acts, like Brad Corrigan, Zach Heckendorf, Rob Drabkin, Mandy Groves, LVDY, and more. Our slogan is, ‘Just because we can’t stand together, doesn’t mean we can’t be together.’ We encourage everyone to take a break from the chaos and join us for a moment of peace, love, and community.”
