(Le) Poisson Rouge (LPR), a New York City venue and downtown cultural institution, has announced the release of its subscription-based concert livestream platform called LPR.TV. For $19.99 per month, LPR.TV subscribers will receive access to all the venue’s live-streamed concerts, on-demand access to their archive of livestreams, lessons, and much more. LPR. TV was co-founded by composer David Handler and senior music director and partner Brett Tabisel.
With all the uncertainty surrounding the music industry, LPR.TV provides work for artists and agents as well as keeping fans engaged. Le Poisson Rouge has booked artists including !!! (Chk Chk Chk), Cults, San Fermin, Kimbra, Sunflower Bean, Kevin Devine, Son Little, Laraaji, and Too Many Zooz as the lineup for LPR.TV’s inaugural stream. LPR.TV also confirmed nearly two dozen shows through the end of 2020.
The LPR.tv format has given us the opportunity to do what we do best: curate eclectic, exciting, and adventurous programming once again. The subscription model allows us to take the risks we are known for, while giving artists a platform to perform safely, with the production quality they deserve. Our independent spirit and determination to innovate will not be silenced. The support for LPR.tv from our community and peers has been inspiring and motivating. Honored to feed your eyes and ears with what we have in store. – Brett Tabisel (Senior Music Director / Partner)
