Our world right is awash, in this odd moment, with Instagram Live concerts, digital DIY projects, and fundraising efforts.

Thankfully, Durham spiritual anchors NorthStar Church of the Arts and the Pinhook are here—as they always have been—to help make sense of the noise and bring the community together. 

This Saturday at 3:30 p.m., join both institutions in a digital, aptly-titled “WHAT-THE-HELL-ATHON” that draws together live entertainment and fundraising for Durham artists. 

The line-up of virtual performers include a list of Triangle favorites: Madison McFerrin, Tashi Dorji, Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz), Shirlette Ammons, Skylar Gudasz, Tift Merritt and more. 

To tune into the performance, you’ll need to sign up as a sustaining donor of The Pinhook or NorthStar. All proceeds will go to the Durham Artist Relief Fund
