Sneaking in on Friday might have been the least talked about concert happening that week. And while it may have been drowned out by all the other events going on around town that week, certainly wasn’t the quietest. In fact, it was probably the loudest.
On May 21 the Lincoln mask mandate was lifted, just over ten months after being put in effect last July. As local venues slowly reintegrate live music back into the Lincoln community, they are constantly reevaluating their health policies, and even more so with this major city-wide change.
It’s no secret that the outbreak of COVID-19 has taken a toll on the local music scene. Beloved venues have closed their doors, social distancing measures have limited audience engagement, and performers have had to deal with the loss of a crucial aspect of their lives. With no other choice, Lincoln musicians have spent the past 10 months applying their creativity to finding new ways to perform, rehearse, and interact with the community.
