As I’ve said before, I love shows! I love concerts especially in my hometown because they bring together people who are hungry for live music in our communities and because of that our communities grow stronger. I love getting the chance to talk with people at shows and hear what they enjoy listening to, and seeing how I can feature those tastes on The Appetizer.
This past weekend, we hosted 3 bands in Abilene at The Historic Paramount Theater. It was a great night full of music and conversations and collaboration. I met some great new people like students Jake, Conner, and Sam from Wylie who love indie music and introduced me to some great indie acts. I’ll be checking them out this week and those suggestions might find their way on the show. I spoke with Matt who is originally from Portland but is in Abilene working temporarily. It was great connecting with him and hopefully we’ll talk some more. And I got to see some old friends I hadn’t talked to in a long time including Brandon and Justin from The Rocketboys, Alex and Kara from The Light Parade, and my buddy Dave from Austin. Dave and I went to college together and we got to catch up briefly and share some laughs. It was a great time.
If you missed the show, I’ve provided a taste of what you could have dined on with me. If you didn’t and you came out, thanks. I hope to see you around at the next show. Enjoy!
