Concert Catharsis: The Story of "Newport"-Part One

I saw Florence + the Machine in concert a few nights ago, and while I could go on and on about how incredible she and the band are live, and how I think she may possibly be one of the best performers of my generation, I'll spare you the gushing.  You already know all of that anyway, I'm sure!  What I do want to share is the familiar feeling I have after every concert I go to.  I always leave with an energy that makes me feel like I have no other choice but to do music, no matter what length I have to go to. It's not always a comfortable feeling.  Actually, up until I really started to pursue music about a year ago, it was a really sad feeling. Watching artists perform who I admired made me feel like I knew exactly what I was supposed to be doing. But then when the concert was over that feeling would disappear because I wasn't doing anything myself to pursue music, and it felt impossible to actually do it.  That all changed for me after the Newport Folk Festival last year....

TO BE CONTINUED NEXT WEEK!
