Summary: Attending local live music performances is good for the soul,
the community and the players too.
Musicians toil for years to gain the ability to play
their instruments and have it sound like music. If they write
songs and play them in front of an audience, they are
giving a profound gift.
Music is like the working of complicated mathematical
formulas, it is art, and it has the power to reach us on a
visceral level. Chordal progressions, tempo, and lyrics all
work to create a harmonic whole.
Local musicians who choose to play live at local venues
should be supported. It is tough work, they carry heavy
equipment, receive little money and play music for us.
When one attends a live, local concert, it is also an
opportunity for the community to gather. When people who
enjoy the same kind of music, or a particular musician, join
together for the experience, that can be a fulfilling thing
Supporting local live music. benefits the artist, the
individual and one's community.
