I go away for a couple of weeks and look what happens… it’s like forgetting to lock your door but still being surprised when you find out all your stuff has been stolen. Between Brexit and Trump this year, you’d be forgiven if “the will of the people” merely leads you to the bottom of many a bottle. Alas, if for a couple of hours each night, you can try and forget reality with some great music.
It seems like a lot of the local news is on a bit of a downer this week, neighbourhood bars are closing while Starbucks gets an alcohol licence, and then of course, there is this; it’s enough to make you question humanity. However, just like the fact that we’re actually living in the most peaceful time in human history is a hard one to accept before looking at the cold, hard data, this city we call home still offers great excitement as opposed to a gloom of lost opportunity. With plenty of summertime left to enjoy/endure, make the most of it by catching some shows!
