The internet has been pretty good to Goh Nakamura. After becoming a YouTube celebrity for his video Embarcadero Blues, he returned the favor to his Internet fans by making MP3’s from his newest album, Ulysses, available for free.
But an artist can’t pay water bills and buy groceries off of downloading MP3 or clicking a shiny silver arrow on YouTube, which means if you want to truly support the artist you’ll need to invariably throw down some money for an physical album — or, even better, buy merchandise from a live show. But if you’re not geographically close to the San Francisco Bay Area, you can still watch Goh Nakamura work his magic — he’ll be streaming a live performance via his website tomorrow, 8:00pm PST. There’ll be a chat room, and if you’re lucky he’ll be taking requests.
And if you are in the San Francisco Area, what luck — you’ll be able to catch Goh perform with the previously-blogged Jane Lui in an all-ages show at Cafe Du Nord on June 30th; you can watch a recently recorded duet between the two of them on our Tumblr.
