Good morning from sunny SoCal. I’m recovering from a three-day music festival, and since I am no spring chicken, this will likely take the better part of the week! It’s worth it to see so much good music though.
I appreciate live music so much more now than I did when going to concerts as a teenager. I think it’s because I understand how much talent, hard work, and perseverance it takes to maintain a career in the arts. The bands that have lasted, the ones who continue to put out great music year after year, are so freaking impressive to me.
Another fun thing about concerts is that I can show up as just a fan. Because I’m a writer, when I’m reading a book, there’s always this little part of me that’s either critiquing or coveting. I carry none of that baggage when I see a musician performing. It’s pure appreciation on my part for their art, and it’s fun!
Anyway…. since my brain is rather pickled, I’ll take this opportunity to share my schedule for the fall. I hope you can make it to one of these events. They’re all different and all really fun in their own way.
