In response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, for the next few weeks Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie will be live streaming solo concerts from his home studio. The first performance was yesterday and during the 45 minutes he covered Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees.” Gibbard has also announced on Twitter that he’s taking requests. Below are separate videos of the Radiohead cover, as well as archived video of the whole first concert.

His concerts are happening every day at 4 p.m. PST/7 p.m. EST and you will be able to watch him on YouTube or Facebook. Gibbard’s home state of Washington has been especially hard hit by COVID-19.

Check out the YouTube stream below at the appointed time or here. Find more info here and here.

Death Cab for Cutie released a new EP, The Blue EP, last year via Atlantic. Death Cab for Cutie’s last album, Thank You For Today, came out in 2018 via Atlantic.
