Editor’s note: As the city of Tuscaloosa has ordered all establishments selling food and drink to close in attempts to slow the spread of coronavirus, and as other businesses and venues have followed suit, the usual run of local shows, concerts and other public gatherings will not be published, as they’re all either canceled or in the process of being rescheduled.
Instead, we’ll publish online performances or events, and concerts and other events slated for farther out, in hopes that by the time they roll around, the threat will be lessened, and restrictions loosened.
If readers should know of any virtual concerts or other non-crowd-gathering entertainment underway, please share to email@example.com, so we can help spread the word.
