My father and I have been going to concerts together since I was 9 years old. Collective Soul was my first show at Detroit TasteFest. As I’ve started working on my music series memories keep flooding back in.

We went and saw m83 on their first headlining tour in the United States. It was the cleanest, friendliest and surprisingly pleasant show we had ever been too. It smelled like flowers and perfume. Typically it smells like man sweat and cheap beer!

It was amazing watching a tech switch the patch cords between every song on Anthony's synthesizer. m83 is at the top of their game and touring with a full band. Go see them live. Thanks for checking out the beginning of my series.
