Nectar Lounge Announces ‘PBJam Virtual Fest 2020’
Seattle venue Nectar Lounge will present the PBJam Virtual Fest 2020 via livestream from Thursday, September 10 – Saturday, September 12. Each of the participating acts will perform live on Nectar Lounge’s stage will full light and sound production.
Polyrhythmics‘ side project Unsinkable Heavies, Swindler and Yak Attack are among the artists set to perform as part of PBJam Virtual Fest 2020. “PBJam Fest was created to aim a spotlight at developing talent in the Pacific Northwest, showcasing musical genres most associated with The PBJ Present brand,” said PBJam founder and Nectar Lounge talent buyer Andy Palmer. “After a fantastic event in 2019, we had intended to keep the tradition alive in 2020 and had even done a soft announce (sans artist lineup) back on March 4th and went on sale with early bird passes for trusting superfans — and then COVID hit home as the entire paradigm of live music quickly shifted beneath our feet. We were never able to reveal the actual lineup, which we were super excited about! I can’t really say more than that, since most of these acts have agreed to reschedule for 2021… oh man, I sure hope we’re all in much better shape by then!”
