About me

Gender MALE
Location Atlanta, GA
Introduction I love recorded music in any form post-cassettes, but live music is something else. There's the community gathered - the assembly of people who share a liking for the same type of music, the energy, the vibration, the common experience, the way artists choose to represent themselves, the theater of it - all set this apart. And, if that's left wanting, there's still the music itself... and the volume. I write these reviews because carrying the intention to write about them, or anything, carries with it a different lens to the experience - to archive what is notable as memories fade. And I very much enjoy the literal lens when cameras are permitted. Maybe you like the artists covered here or just have an interest in the local scene. Welcome! See also amusedtolife.com, where I catalog those things that I pursue that are thought provoking, fun, or otherwise enjoyable enough to bother writing about them, which is an amusement as well.
