 Over the Weekend: Have you finished Netflix? (Or at least everything you care to watch?) Film Streams has you covered with their online movie rentals. They are  collaborating with distributors to bring you a bit of the Film Streams experience. You can follow them on Facebook for virtual panel discussions as well. Check out some available movies here.

Friday, May 1 to Sunday, May 3: The folks at Junkstock are nothing if not resilient. While they obviously can’t go forward with having people come out to the farm, they have decided to take things online. Junkstock: Online Edition will start sharing vendor posts at 9 a.m. on Friday on the event page’s discussion wall and you can shop on the event page all week. This is a great way to support local artists and makers. For the full list of vendors, head here.

 Saturday, May 2: Well, you say it’s her birthday! So help Aly Peeler celebrate by tuning in as Andrew Bailie and David Hawkins join her for a special birthday show. The trio will be streaming live at 11:11 a.m. I think that means she’ll be making at least two wishes that day, and I’m willing to bet one of them is that you’ll make a donation. A large portion of the proceeds will be donated directly to those in need, including individuals in the service industry, artists, musicians and other folks struggling. Learn more here and follow Andrew Bailie’s music page here for future events.

 Saturday, May 2: OK, this one is from a Lincoln bookstore, but everything is online now anyway, so no travel required. The Francie & Finch Bookshop is presenting Livestream Storytime Saturdays-Local Authors/Illustrators. This week’s author is Nichole Hansen. She will be reading her books, Sharky Dreams of Pizza and Kids Count. Find out who will be reading next week here.

 Feel-Goods: Contributor Virginia Kathryn Gallner released a new song this week in collaboration with keyboardist and songwriter Nidhal Keddah (as Didu). They have been writing new songs together this spring while waiting for the chance to share a stage again. Here is the video they submitted to the NPR Tiny Desk Contest. You can also read this story on Gallner from our March/April 2018 edition of Encounter.
