We might not be able to venue-hop, but thanks to the internet and social networking apps, we can artist-hop and support Arkansas artists during this difficult time from the comfort of our homes. A lot of these artist have lost multiple shows and their incomes have been impacted greatly, so please be generous with their virtual tip jars (cash app, Venmo, PayPal). You can also go to their websites and buy some music and merchandise.
