Storehouse Picks: Virtual Concerts & Shows this August

Storehouse Picks: Virtual Concerts & Shows this August

Enjoy a heady musical experience at home

Music and marijuana have gone together since the dawn of time. Whether its jazz, hip-hop, psych rock or bluegrass, any cannabis aficionado will tell you that few things pair as well as your favorite album and your favorite strain. Why is that? Some experts point to the way cannabinoids stimulate neural changes in the brain’s sensory regions. Other experts point to the social and spiritual aspects of consuming “the sacred herb” with music. Many people fondly recall their first joint at a concert or music festival, which is a little bittersweet now that the summer roster has been postponed... But not to worry!

As die-hard music fans, we’ve been gathering intel on some of the summer’s best virtual concerts you can attend from the comfort of your own home. The purist in you might be skeptical at first, but virtual concerts are growing in popularity for good reason. With an unlimited audience size, high-def production and futuristic tech (see Travis Scott’s game-changing Fortnite concert ), an intimate live show can become a global phenomenon overnight.

There are plus sides to virtual concerts, too. You won’t have to wait in a long line to grab a beer or go to the restroom. You’ll always have the best seat in the house – your house! Most crucially, you can light up freely and experience a heightened appreciation of music without getting chased out by a zealous security guard.

We picked a few of our favorite virtual events to share below with the Storehouse community. Whether your vibe is Lollapalooza or Lillith Fair, you can enjoy a great show with music fans around the world. Tune in, turn on, and check out these awesome virtual concerts happening next month:
