As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, LPR remains unable to open to the public. If you have tickets to a postponed show, follow our events on Facebook and Eventbrite for the most accurate info and check your email for updates. You may also navigate to our events calendar HERE.
In the meantime, we’ve launched our virtual venue: LPR.tv. For $19.99/month, It’s sure to scratch that live music itch you’ve had since March.
LPR.tv brings the best of the Greenwich Village underground music haven to your home. We have created a virtual venue like no other and we can’t wait to show you all the music you never knew you were missing.
For $19.99 a month, LPR.tv subscribers will receive access to ALL of our live-streamed concerts plus on-demand access to our archive of past streams. We’ll also be producing bonus content around these shows like interviews, lessons, and more. The sounds, lights, and intimacy of LPR will all be captured for your enjoyment in stunning HD. Watch on your phone or your laptop, cast it to your big screen – just enjoy it. There are no long-term contracts and you can cancel anytime you’d like. But we promise – you won’t want to.
Composer and LPR co-founder David Handler and senior music director / partner Brett Tabisel have shared some thoughts on LPR.tv, the state of the industry at large and the future of their venue:
There comes a point where standing still is a greater risk than making a move. A point where we have to put points on the board and playing defense simply will not cut it. Our venue has been closed for a half a year now and, like nearly everyone in our industry, we’ve battened down the hatches as much as possible to weather the storm, but still it feels like we are no closer to live music venues reopening than when this all began. We can no longer continue to wait in fear while others decide whether live music is essential or not. In short, we have to switch from defense to offense.
LPR.tv was born out of our need to safely get back to doing what we do best, putting on bold, carefully curated and unique live performances for a discerning audience. It’s about getting artists out of their living rooms and back on stage where they belong. It’s about putting our production team back to work making everything look and sound extraordinary. It’s about supporting an ecosystem of the indie music industry that has been hit hard by this pandemic. Most importantly though, it’s about giving the fans that profoundly important experience of witnessing live art, but in the comfort of their homes, until it’s safe to bring audiences back to the venue again. That we turn to music to be inspired with one another and by one another is one of the better parts of what makes us human. It is an innate ritual that we are privileged to be a part of as presenters. I can’t think of anything more essential at a time like this.
