Stream Pick: SIMS’ Sofa Sessions

By: Laurie Gallardo

Despite the worldwide pause on many of life’s activities, one constant keeps pushing forward: Music. From new releases to live streams bringing the tunes straight to your living room, it hasn’t stopped. It won’t. Ever.

The SIMS Foundation, the local nonprofit providing access to mental healthcare for Austin musicians and their families, understands and appreciates this means of survival. And in celebration of music’s healing power and of Mental Health Month, SIMS presents the SIMS Lounge Sofa Sessions live stream music series. The Wind and The Wave (featured on today’s AMM) performs this evening, Friday May 8th, followed by Shawn Pander and Krister Axel on Saturday May 9th, Max Frost on Sunday May 10th,, and Jaimee Harris on Monday May 11th. More performances to come as the series continues through this month.

All performances start at 5 p.m. (Central) on SIMS Foundation Facebook Live, on the SIMS YouTube channel, and on each performing artist’s Instagram account.
