Metal Anarchy’s Music In The Age Of COVID-19 Series: Interview With Joan Avant

Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “Music In The Age Of COVID-19” series, the feature where I discuss the ongoing pandemic with various musicians. This time I have an interview with Joan Avant.

METAL ANARCHY: How have you been holding up during the coronavirus pandemic?

JOAN AVANT: I’ve been holding up pretty well all things considered.

METAL ANARCHY: Have you been using your downtime to work on new music?

JOAN AVANT: At the beginning of the pandemic, I didn’t have more free time. I ended up with less time as I had to full time home school my kids. But, I did still continue to plug away when possible at my music.

METAL ANARCHY: What was the last show you played or attended before the shutdown?

JOAN AVANT: Hmmm… I attended the Garbage 20 year anniversary concert of their debut “Garbage” album.

METAL ANARCHY: Are you planning to play any livestream concerts during this time?

JOAN AVANT: No, being that I’m a one woman band… the logistics don’t work for now.

METAL ANARCHY: Do you think the live entertainment industry will ever recover?

JOAN AVANT: I hope so!

METAL ANARCHY: Lastly, is there anything fans can do to help your band or others that may be struggling during this time?

JOAN AVANT: Absolutely! Buying physical or digital merch is extremely helpful for struggling bands. If they have a Patreon, go see what you can do. And if you can’t, then share their music with friends you think will like it.
