What is planned? Texas has announced that they are changing their guidelines soon regarding COVID-19, which could be good for the music industry. A well known EDM artist, Yellow Claw, has a show quickly coming up in Dallas scheduled for December 4th, 2020 along with another artist, TOKiMONSTA being booked in Dallas towards the end of January. Aside from these, El Paso, San Antonio, and Houston are already having concerts in venues such as The Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Center and Arena Theatre.

There is no denying that the live events industry was hit the hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March, event organizers have been unable to host events at normal capacity. Some have begun to host small events with health and safety requirements in place while others have stuck to virtual events. We surveyed a group of event coordinators to get the pulse on the state of the live events industry.
Could you imagine living in a world with no venues? No live music? All of the memories and experiences in a crowded concert room, hearing the vibrations of the bass, singing along with your friends in a room filled with historic meaning… all gone. Concerts and tours have been canceled, releases of new music have been pushed back, and one avenue that has skimmed over peoples' minds is the effect these closures are having on independently owned venues. The well-known Fillmore venue in San Francisco, where Jimi Hendrix performed and gave light to rock music in the 1960’s, and The Troubadour in West Hollywood, where Elton John made his U.S. debut, could all be lost and closed for good due to this pandemic.
