The pandemic has taken a toll on a number of businesses, including independent music venues. In an effort to keep these indie stages afloat, the National Independent Venue Association held a three-day virtual festival called Save Our Stages. The benefit featured 35 artists ranging from Macklemore and Foo Fighters to Reba McEntire and Leon Bridges on various venues across the country. During a set at Whiskey a Go Go in Los Angeles, Miley Cyrus showed her versatility with an impressive performance of The Cranberries' iconic 1994 single "Zombies."
