"Live From a Pandemic" - Recorded live at the Dakota Tavern

On August 20, 2020, Fast Romantics faced an empty Dakota Tavern in Toronto, Canada. Lights went up, director Jared Raab started filming, and the result was broadcast to hundreds of people streaming it live from their houses and backyards.

It was the thick of the pandemic. No audiences allowed. But the band gathered some close friends to join them in celebrating the release of their pandemically-released album "PICK IT UP," and the result can be seen live -- now for free -- on YouTube.

This live album is the audio from that live performance, and 100% of your purchase here today will be donated to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society. Please do consider purchasing this album here in addition to watching the show at YouTube. It's a great way to show your support for this important cause. Please do pass this link around.
