If a small studio seems dodgy for recording with your band right now, the Morris Graves Museum of Art has another option for you: the free use of its beautiful rotunda, where you and your bandmates can spread out and enjoy the acoustics. And you can use your recording to do a little virtual busking with the Journal

In an email to the Journal
, Executive Director-Curator Jemima Harr wrote, "The Morris Graves Museum of Art has always been a hub for the arts in the community and while we can't open the space to the general public, we can offer it to small groups (under 10 people) to record live musical performances to share with the community virtually." Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a reservation on a Wednesday or Thursday between 1 a.m. and 2 p.m. Only one session will be booked per day to allow for sanitizing between groups.
While the wi-fi doesn't allow for live streaming, you can still record video — if you do, email email@example.com and see about posting it on the Journal
website along with your payment app information so folks missing local live music can tip the band. (We'll throw a few bucks in the hat, too.)
