Play it Safe is a global platform for the broadcast of live concerts and radio shows, created amid the Covid-19 pandemic by Gig Club, in partnership with Omnichord Records, with the aim of incentivizing music fans to stay home, reducing the chances of the virus infecting a big percentage of the population. Artists will be broadcasting intimate concerts from their homes through Gig Club's online radio - in some cases, shows will also be broadcasted in video on social media. We strongly encourage you to donate money to the artist's for their performance or to buy their music. Contribution links for each show will be shared on the Facebook event and on the Agenda section on this page. Anyone with a computer and an internet connection can also contribute to this by becoming a radio dj sharing the music they're listening at home, directly from their computer. Send us a 1 hour playlist showcasing the music you wanna play and we'll give you a 1 hour slot on our online station. Every time you share something related with this initiative, please use the hashtags: #playitsafe #stayhome #covid19

Os D’Alva são uma banda cujo código genético é multicultural. Tanto Alex como Ben cresceram na Grande Lisboa, mas África e o Brasil correm no sangue das suas famílias. Essa herança transporta-se para palco com a liberdade e a energia próprias dos trópicos, cruzada com um espírito estético pop.

A message from the artists
We asked the artists to send you a message. This is what they said.
It's a scary time, but there will be a lot of great art that comes out of this. Please use self isolation to focus on recuperating, staying safe and finishing long overdue projects.

Isto é algo inédito nas nossas vidas. Somos todos importantes para ultrapassar isto. Isto não é adiar as nossas vidas. Isto é proteger as nossas vidas e sobretudo dos que cuidaram de ti quando ainda gatinhavas. Sejamos solidários. Ser solidário é ficar em casa.
