The closure of bars and nightclubs because of COVID-19 has put the kibosh on live music for most Floridians, but thanks to live-streaming, you can catch virtual sets from artists as diverse as Kali Uchis, James Blake and Miguel, as well as local favorites. At 8 p.m. this evening, Matt Burke, the lead singer of the popular Bradenton band Have Gun, Will Travel, will stream a solo set on Facebook.

The acoustic show will feature Burke performing a number of Have Gun, Will Travel songs, as well as covers. The band, known for its mix of classic country and indie rock, has released six LPs and one EP, all of them stellar, since forming in 2006. Its latest record, Strange Chemistry, came out last year. Burke says that if the virtual show goes well tonight, he might make it a regular gig. He's asking for donations, but stresses that the show is free.

To catch the set, visit at 8 p.m.
