Happy Friday, folks! Your friends at Paste are celebrating the only way we know how: with live music streamed straight into your Facebook feed. Today’s Paste Studio performances include Detroit indie-pop outfit JR JR (formerly Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.) and activist, author, documentary filmmaker, theologian and Southern blues man Rev. Sekou. Translation: There will be a pair of must-see shows in our New York City space today. Plan your afternoon accordingly.
This is more than just music for music’s sake, however: JR JR are partnering with the JED Foundation on their current tour in an effort to raise mental health awareness and help prevent teen suicide—you can find out more about JED and how you can help here, and be sure to tune in today to hear the band’s thoughts on (and their personal experiences with) these critical issues.
Here’s our schedule for the afternoon, including approximate stream start times:
- 1:30 p.m. EST: JR JR @ Paste Studio, Previously Recorded
- 6:30 p.m. EST: Rev. Sekou @ Paste Studio, Live
Tune in on Paste’s Facebook page here, keep an eye on our feed here for any scheduling updates, and find a pair of Paste Cloud performances from JR JR (including a classic from the Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. days) below.
