Joe Peppercorn, the founder and driving force behind the annual Sgt. Peppercorn’s Marathon, will be attempting a solo Beatles marathon from his living room for Sgt. Peppercorn’s Marathon 10 ½. From Joe: “I don’t know how well I am gonna be able to sing 5 hours in, but we shall see. Gonna start at 9 am and hopefully wrap up around 9 pm. Gonna pause at 2ish for us to all get updated by Dr. Amy Acton. I will create an event and give everyone details for how you can watch the stream. Any advice on best streaming platforms is welcome. This will be very similar to the first Beatles marathon, which was basically in a living room (Andyman's Treehouse front room).” We will update this post when more details are available.

Columbus Goes Live: The Cyber Festival will be streaming a slew of local acts on Instagram, including wyd, Souther, the Cordial Sins, Fables, mungbean and a bunch more, beginning at 11 a.m.
