I saw Frank Turner last weekend. It was easily the best show I’ve attended all year. I even got a chance to chat with him afterwards. I always find it sets things right when I’m able to tell artists that I enjoy just how much I enjoy them. It makes me feel like I’m completing the circle when I go out to shows and support artists by buying music and merch.
People often complain these days that music has become disposable, but things are only disposable if you treat them as such. I’m not all that interested in throwing away the things I believe in.
cause if you know where I come from…
The mix gets a little sad this week, but we’re just fine. The leaves on the trees are dying. Change is good.
