I buy concert tickets year round- aka my bank account hurts year round. Concerts are very important for the soul. I have been to more than I can count ranging from smaller venues, to music festivals, to stadiums and even free shows. The absolute best feeling in the world is being able to connect with hundreds and thousands of people through a mutual appreciation of an artist and their music.

I always buy tickets in the pit of the venue and even wait hours in line just to be in the front, some people may think its crazy but it is definitely worth it. The longest I have waited was 8 hours for Khalid, but we left the show happy and sunburnt. I believe in investing money into experiences and live music is one of the best experiences you can pay for. I made a list of my favorite shows over the past 3 years:

2016 2017 2018
Jon Bellion Chance The Rapper One Republic
Kehlani Khalid Shawn Mendes
Khalid Post Malone Paul McCartney

I attended Austin City Limits for the first time last year and it made me realize my dream career path. Fingers crossed, my dream job would be to create content for music festivals like ACL, Coachella and Lollapalooza. This, or creating content for a music streaming platform like iHeartRadio or Spotify. I would be happy just to be a part of the process in contributing to the music industry.
