Stay In and Support the Apollo

As it did all over the world, the pandemic forced the cancellation of live events on the famous stage of Harlem’s Apollo. To brighten its financial outlook — and to provide micro-grants to neighborhood merchants and small businesses around 125th Street — the Apollo is doing what it does best: putting on a show. The lineup for tonight’s “Let’s Stay In Together” benefit will be legendary, including such talents as Dionne Warwick, Gary Clark Jr., Doug E. Fresh, Teddy Riley, Kool & the Gang, Vernon Reid, Ziggy Marley, Michael McDonald, and many more (including, says the Apollo, some surprises). The free show starts online at 7:30. Give generously at apollotheater.org, and while you’re there, be sure to bid on a pair of very sweet limited-issue Gibson guitars.
