2023 Highlight Reel

Here is my year in live music, in eight and a half minutes.

Looking back at my personal music highlights from 2023, it's hard not to feel grateful and humbled by the experiences. I was fortunate to see incredible talent from so many different artists and genres, at venues both classic and inspiring. Many of the events that made the video might not have happened if it wasn't for a resolve to get out of the house, and get to the show.

I am better off for all for each of these experiences, the music gives back what you put into it. Taking a leap of faith by putting my music thoughts and experiences down on paper wasn't an easy one for this introverted music fan. Sharing the stories with friends and strangers alike was terrifying at first, and has now shifted toward therapeutic. This was a year that I took something that was always a passion, and leaned into it harder than ever.

Whether or not you like the music in this clip, it was the connections made during the process that really matter. I love the whole process of concert planning - the tickets, restaurants, crew, setlists, and posts. I get excited by a show coming up on the calendar, and looking back at them once they pass. I won't remember feeling tired the next day, but the memory of these evenings will stick with me - in some cases forever.

It's almost time to start making next year's music memories. Hopefully something in this video inspires you to buy those concert tickets you're contemplating. You won't regret it.
