This week’s music live-streams start not with a bang but a bong: Willie Nelson and Wiz Khalifa are fronting two different 4/20 multi-artist online potfests Monday. For those who prefer to drink in the greenery only with thine eyes, a star-studded, two-day Earth Day celebration is coming later in the week.

Also on tap: a New Jersey fundraiser featuring no less a native son than Bruce Springsteen; a benefit for North Carolina artists that includes homegrown talents like Ben Folds, Tift Merritt, Jim Lauderdale and Anthony Hamilton; the premiere of a rootsy new show from Ed Helms’ Bluegrass Situation and the Americana Music Association; a “Stonewall Gives Back” show; and individual web concerts by Lake Street Dive and others.
