Sofar Sounds — which has made a name and a business for itself by staging “secret gigs and intimate concerts” featuring emerging artists for an invited, engaged audience — is among the many businesses in the live-entertainment space that have been devastated by the coronavirus pandemic. While it was thriving both as a platform — it staged more than 10,000 concerts last year in North American and Europe — and a business, obviously it’s had to postpone its normal operations for the immediate future.
However, the company has launched a daily “Listening Room” livestream to assist impartial artists by the pandemic, the place viewers can donate to artists instantly or to the Sofar Global Artist Fund.
