Connecticut-based rock quintet Goose have announced plans for a live stream concert from New York’s Rockefeller. Goosemas Livestream from Rockefeller Center is the band’s seventh annual holiday celebration in seven years and is set for Dec. 11 at 7pm et. The performance will be available exclusively on Twitch’s new Relix Channel with proceeds benefiting Save Our Stages and Conscious Alliance.
“Goosemas 4 was my first gig playing with Goose so the annual show has a big place in my heart. I’m bummed we can’t be with our family and friends in person for this one, but the location is going to make it that much more exciting to stream,” said Goose’s Peter Anspach. “I’m beyond stoked we were able to pull that together in such a chaotic year. Big shout out to our whole team for always crushing it, Peter Shapiro, and thanks to Rockefeller Center for hosting what will be a very special night.”
Nestled over seven stories high in the Manhattan skyline, “Goosemas Livestream From Rockefeller Center” will be the first livestream of its kind, tapping into the band’s penchant for innovation and creativity during the pandemic. Goose recently completed their universally acclaimed Bingo Tour, which amassed thousands of viewers over the “Digital Tour,” as well as a string of sold-out socially-distant drive-in shows this fall.
“Goose has amazing momentum right now and we are so excited to be working with them on this incredibly special performance at Rockefeller Center– one of the most iconic locations in the world. There isn’t a more epic way to ring in the holidays than with a rock show in the sky,” added Shapiro, publisher of Relix Magazine and Twitch Relix Channel.
Proceeds from the benefit will go to the National Independent Venue Association, which supports Save our Stages, a national charity that provides support ti independent live event venues and promoters throughout the United States and Conscious Alliance, a nonprofit that connects a network of creatives to collect large-scale donations in order to combat hunger in historically underserved communities. Donations from Goosemas will help keep Conscious Alliance on the road this winter delivering 200,000 meals to kids and families in need. Every $1 donated, two meals are created for someone going without food this holiday season.
Those who make donations through the Goosemas website will receive early access to the Goosemas Merch Store on Wednesday Dec. 9 at 10am Eastern, which opens to the general public at 1 pm Eastern. For more information, click here.
