The formerly New York-based singer (and
current Where Y'at writer) Sabrina Stone is making her debut in New
Orleans as the main stage attraction at the House of Blues December 1.
While she is known for her art and writing as well as her music, this will be
primarily a musical exposition. Starting at 7 p.m. sharp this Tuesday, Sabrina
Stone will be doing covers of excellent tried-and-true classics by Fleetwood
Mac as well as newer compositions by more recent artists such as Billie Eilish
and Sara Bareilles. This will be a one-hour-long performance highlighting
female artists, entirely virtual and accessible via the House of Blues's social
effort to combat the again-rising COVID-19 spread, this event will be held via
livestream alone and admission will be gratis, though there is a small
recommended ticket donation of $5 for anyone who tunes in. Both the House of
Blues's Instagram and Facebook
pages will work, and they both share the same tag of @HOBNOLA.
also be performing a number of original compositions, often noted for their striking
balance between wittiness and sadness. She will also be doing covers from Sheryl
Crow, Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, and Sylvan Esso are other featured artists,
so make a concerted effort to tune in if you would like to see any songs from
these staples revamped and sung by a new voice.
It is unfortunate that this event
has to be entirely virtual, as it did seem like things were truly getting
better for the music industry and for COVID cases overall. Despite some improvements,
with the rising case count now, it could be longer than we originally expected
for a full reopening. The longer we are all distanced and restricted is more
time the New Orleans music industry must spend languishing, so do your part to
stop the spread wherever you can. Also, should you choose to participate in the
livestream, please make the small donation of $5 as compensation for your entertainment;
the industry needs all it can get nowadays.
