Live Stream: Encore Ottawa Watch Party—Feb. 26 at 8pm

By Greggory Clark on February 26, 2021

Live stream on YouTube: Friday, Feb. 26 at 8PM

A series of concerts taped behind closed doors at the Shenkman Arts Centre begin airing tonight in a 1-hour YouTube special. Seiiizi, Harea Band, Mischa, Céleste Lévis, and Pony Girl are just some of the 16 Ottawa music acts that were booked to play sets in the empty 500-seat venue. This page of production safety notes describes how the camera crew used cranes and robotic cameras to shoot the performers from a distance.

Following tonight’s YouTube Watch Party, the 16 concerts will air in full on Rogers TV (cable and free streaming) in weekly double-headers through spring 2021.
