It’s Labor Day weekend in the United States, which means one thing: An extra day to celebrate (safely, of course, given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic). One of the best options for at-home entertainment this particular holiday weekend is live streaming, and there are plenty of exciting options available at the touch of a remote control over the next couple of days. If you’re wondering what to stream this weekend, you’ve come to the right place. Here are our streaming picks for Sept. 4-6, 2020.

Pearl Jam Safeco Field 2018 — Sept. 4-7, Nugs.net ($14.99)

In 2018, Pearl Jam staged The Home Shows, a pair of gigs in the alt/grunge band’s hometown of Seattle. Taking the stage at Safeco Field, the band roared through career-spanning sets for their core audience of dedicated fans.

This weekend, one of the Safeco Field gigs will be made available to stream via Nugs.net, and it’s a doozy:

This was the first of two sold-out performances billed as “The Home Shows” from Safeco Field in Seattle, where the hometown crowd was treated to a 33-song setlist which included rarities, the debut of a White Stripes cover, a guest appearance from Brandi Carlile, and the beloved classics.

The stream will go up at 8 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. PDT on Friday, Sept. 4 for $14.99 — and will remain available for repeat viewings throughout Labor Day Weekend — click here for more details on that.

Phish Dinner and a Movie Labor Day weekend triple-feature — Sept. 4-6, YouTube and LivePhish.com (Free)

Disney’s Mulan — Disney Plus ($29.99)

After a few delays caused by the pandemic and the movie industry’s uncertainty, Disney’s anticipated live-action remake of 1998’s animated film Mulan is now available via Disney Plus.

There’s a catch, however. In order to watch the film as a Disney Plus subscriber, you have to pay $29.99 to access the film specifically, unless you want to wait until early December when that restriction is lifted. For more on how to watch Mulan, click here.

Bleeding Audio, a new music documentary about mid-2000s pop-punk/alt-rock band The Matches — SF Documentary Film Festival ($10)

In the works for a few years, Bleeding Audio tells the tale of the Matches, a pop-punk/alt-rock band from the Bay Area of Northern California that amassed international attention in the mid-200s, a major label deal and more … only to find the changing digital music landscape (and other issues) force the group’s premature dissolution in 2009, until feverish fan interest sparked some reunion gigs five years later.

Bleeding Audio will be the Closing Night Film featured in the SF Documentary Film Festival, and will be available to watch from Sept. 3 through Sept. 20, with a special Closing Night Q&A session set for Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. PDT.
