Here are our streaming picks for Aug. 14-16, 2020.

The Who @ Isle of Wight 1970 — Saturday, Aug. 22, YouTube

The Who began an archival streaming series recently, and Join Together @ Home is all about giving fans of the legendary rock band some entertainment from home, while at the same time raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America — both organizations very near and dear to the band‘s heart.

This weekend’s installment is coming on Saturday, and flashes back to the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970. Here’s Roger Daltrey with an introduction:

Be sure to tune in to the Who’s YouTube channel on Saturday at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT when the archival footage goes “live”:

because live shows won’t happen for the foreseeable future, we’d like to invite you to our “Virtual World Tour”! we shot 4 unique live sets at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles (under strict COVID protocol of course). all the sets are totally different from each other and are set to air at reasonable times for different time zones (but in case you can’t make the scheduled time, whatever shows you tune in for will be available to watch until Oct. 4th). we had a blast playing even to an empty room, so we’d love for all of you to pop some popcorn, kick back, and mosh like maniacs from the comfort of your homes. tickets are $15 per show or $55 for all four (plus a screenprint of the poster above). ON SALE NOW. LINK IN BIO.
