Dear Friend of the Daily Vault,

As you go about your business in the days and weeks ahead -- which we hope includes following WHO* and CDC guidance -- we also want to urge you to consider how this crisis is affecting our brothers and sisters who make the music we love so much. The tours and gigs that today's musicians rely on for income are being cancelled right and left. Now more than ever, if you care about music, show the artists who make it that you mean it: order a CD or a t-shirt, buy a download on Bandcamp, sponsor someone on Patreon, join someone's fan club. Support the artists whose music brings you joy and pleasure, so that they can get through this. We are a community, and right now our friends need our help.

Now, where were we? Oh yeah -- time to put on some music. Please be well, and be kind -


*The World Health Organization, not Daltrey and Townshend -- though they often have good advice, too.
