What do you miss most as you wait out the coronavirus? If the answer is dancing, then Chico disco-pop duo Astronaut Ice Cream has solved one of your problems.

Guitarist Kirt Lind and singer/beat-maker Heather Marie Ellison recently set up on a patio on a ranch in Capay and performed a nine-song set of the band’s happy, energetic tunes for a 32-minute Live at Babbitt Ranch concert. It’s a multi-camera production filmed by local photographer/actor/artist Joey Moshiri, edited by Lind and uploaded it to the Astronaut Ice Cream YouTube channel.

The band announced the release on Facebook, with the message: “In this challenging time, it felt restorative for us to share this concert, and maybe watching it can be uplifting for you too.”
