Traditionally a month of optimism and new beginnings as we usher in Spring, March this year feels particularly positive given that we may have a normal looking summer after the government revealed their roadmap out of lockdown. 

From where I'm sat, gigs and festivals still seem a fair way off from happening. But at least there's a welcome injection of hope that the future is closer than we think. 

To tie us over until the aforementioned is an actuality, however, are livestream sets - here's six of them scheduled for this month that are must-see:

Black Country, New Road: Livestream from the Queen Elizabeth Hall - 6th March, 20:00 GMT

Avant-garde indie starlets Black Country, New Road bring their psychodrama story-telling to the Southbank Centre, in what is undoubtedly their biggest show to date. One of UK music's more eclectic and exciting new bands, it's not to be missed that's for sure.

Marie Davidson: Renegade Breakdown Live - 11th March, 20:00 GMT
