A Jon Dee Graham Valentine
If you’re looking for something hopeful and musical to do Valentine’s night, you can tune into a Jon Dee Graham house concert from Graham’s Austin home, live online. The three-time Austin Hall of Fame inductee is experimenting with artist-hosted Internet concerts via concertwindow.com. For those who can’t make it to Austin, it really is almost like being there. The online venue is pay-what-you-want and the artist receives two-thirds of your admission donation. See jondeegraham.com.
