Baseball season might be up in the air at the moment, but that hasn't stopped Fenway Park's organist from tickling the ivories to keep the vibes of America's pastime going. According to NPR, Josh Kantor plays a 30-minute set each day from his home in Cambridge. The gigs go down daily at 3pm ET, and you can tun in via Kantor's Facebook page, 7th-Inning Stretch. What's more, he's taking requests—yesterday, he tackled tracks by Smokey Robinson, REM and Bob Marley, among others, all with a distinctly I-feel-like-I'm-at-the-ballpark aesthetic—and politely asks that you donate to food banks during each live-stream. He also tells the non-profit he's "committed to doing it every single day (what's a weekend?) until people get sick of it or until baseball starts up."
So be sure to nab a cold one, a hotdog and some delivered-to-your-door box of Cracker Jack and take in the tunes. Searching for more sweet virtual gigs to duck into? We're regularly updating our rundown of the best live-streamed concerts and DJ nights happening throughout the world.
