Ben Gibbard, long time hero to Seattle kids in their basements writing love songs during a long, dark winter, is aware of impact he can have on our community. In a long Facebook post last night, he had some rad news for everyone doing the right thing by staying at home and not being a dildo about ignoring health warnings.

Hey Everyone,

I know you are all really freaked out right now. I am too. And while I’m proud that we’re all doing the necessary things at the moment to help flatten the curve, I know it has left us all incredibly isolated.

But because we’re all going through this nightmare together we are quite literally NOT alone. Our lives and stories are all linked, maybe more now than they have ever been.

Be it with DCFC, Postal Service, or solo I have always been grateful for the honor you have bestowed upon us by choosing to congregate en masse around our music. Some of you have traveled great distances and/or shelled out large sums of money to see us play and that has never been lost on me. So in this crazy and unprecedented time, I’d like to return the favor by coming to YOU.

For the next few weeks I will be playing songs everyday from my home studio. We will be streaming on Facebook at 4pm PST daily. We’re still working out the details but I’m hoping to take some requests and maybe even have a guest or two stop by digitally. The first show will be tomorrow. It will assuredly be a little wonky and glitchy but we’re gonna do our best.

See You Tomorrow.



UPDATE: Here's day 1's material!

Ben's planning to try it everyday for the next two weeks including your requests, Q&A and more!

While you should def 100% be listening to Walt, why not swoon over Ben's dreaminess (and hate for a bad Mariners season) for a few minutes to take your mind off the constant stream of terrible news otherwise flooding our overloaded brains almost constantly?
