Due to the coronavirus pandemic, a lot of events have been canceled or rescheduled. However, some organizations and Athens groups are adapting to the Ohio stay-at-home order and hosting events online through virtual services, like Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Here’s a list of some events still happening this week:

Bangers 3: Revenge of the Sith at 9 p.m., hosted by DJ B-Funk, DJ Barticus and WOUB Public Media. Though places have started to open up, DJ Barticus feels that mass gatherings aren’t the greatest idea for people’s health. Join the livestream through Twitch.tv or through Instagram @bartykutz.
