Something Live-Streamed

Last Gasp Collective to perform
Last Gasp Collective

We’re all getting used to the idea of living-room concerts by now — watching our favorite artists live-stream performances while we sit blissfully on our couches — so here’s one to add to your calendar.

A performance by Kalamazoo’s own Last Gasp Collective will be streamed live at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12 from the Kalamazoo State Theatre, as part of the theater’s Artist Spotlight Livestream Series.

The ensemble’s music features melodic cello and saxophone lines, jazz guitar voicings and gospel piano underneath soulful voices and poetic lyricism. The group’s most recent album, Seen Not Heard, won a 2020 Jammie Award for Best Album by a New Artist from the West Michigan radio station WYCE (88.1 FM).

Tickets are $10–$30 and available at
