There is something about a live show…the moment when the musicians pick up their instruments and play the first notes…the anticipation as the lead singer steps up to the mic…and the sound that begins to pour out from the stage…its that very moment, standing next to friends, listening, watching, and sharing in that unique space in time…its just magical.
We’ve been going to shows since we were teenagers. Shows are our happy place. Anything from the big epic concerts, ala U2, to an intimate acoustic set at Largo…it doesn’t matter, they are all exciting and special. They spark our imagination and fuel our emotions. Even today, when digital streaming is constant, and online access to music has created a thin and solitary listening culture, we all still crave the live experience. And for the musicians, its the danger and risk of stepping out, expressing something for others to see and hear. Its a vulnerable act, sharing each song for others to critique. And its a thrilling act, to be in sync with the audience, to feel their support and energy as the show is experienced together…
ahh…we love live shows!!
And on that note, we’ve got some great shows coming up over the next month in LA and Nashville…see below for calendar. Of course, Moxi‘s Album Release Show is tonight at The Hotel Cafe, 10pm. AND…Casey Black is playing at The Bluebird Cafe tomorrow night!!!
