Covers for Cover 2020

Zoom livestream from your house!

I'm so excited to be playing a solo set this year! I'll be one of the first performers on Thursday night, so don't miss it! -Lindsay

For over 10 years, Covers for Cover has offered a space for amazing women musicians and artists to donate their music & art to host an amazing event with proceeds going to a different Chicago-based charity that focuses on providing services to women & children.
Pandemics only exacerbate the needs of the community, and so the Covers to Covers team is committed to making this the best year ever, despite not being able to pack the house at Schuba's or Lincoln Hall as planned! We have doubled the number of volunteers, tripled the number of acts and gone worldwide and virtual! We want to bring as much attention as we can to the truly amazing work of The Dreamcatcher Foundation; an organization that uses harm reduction practices and mentorship to help stop human trafficking. Your $15 donation will go directly to The Dreamcatcher Foundation and is tax-deductible.

And don't forget, grab your tickets to join us December 3, 4, and 5th for our Livestream event, including a fantastic silent auction. #coversforcover


Haiku Milieu: Begin with the End in Mind

And how much or a role did it play in the mass exodus of COVID-19 beards from the landscape? JOIN US and see.
