Needtobreathe Concert

Music has always been an important part of my life. Unfortunately, I have zero ability to create my own, so instead I appreciate the talents of others. Anyone who knows me will attest to the fact that I can't keep a beat or carry a tune to save my life- That's never stopped me from singing all the time,though.

These are a few of my favorite artists:

Concerts

“A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage.” –Elvis Presley

My Guitar Picks

I'm also an avid concert attender. I've been to more shows than I can count, but a few stand out. I've attended Vans Warped Tour, a traveling alternative music festival, a few times and always enjoy it. I can only describe Warped as an experience. It occurs in the summer months and is outside, so the Florida heat is blistering. At some point in the day, it is guaranteed to rain- But it's a humid rain, not a refreshing one. There are multiple stages set-up throughout the park where the concert is located and so there are multiple acts going on at once. Attendees are given a schedule and have to decide which band they want to see during each time slot. Warped can be pretty overwhelming at times, but it's always fun to be in that type of environment with people who appreciate the same kind of music as you. My favorite shows, however, are at small rock venues. I think everyone should experience that type of concert at least once in their life. In my hometown, the local venue is called State Theatre. It is located on Central Avenue in downtown St. Petersburg. Whenever I walk into that tiny venue, I always feel at home.

While I wouldn't consider myself a film buff, I definitely enjoy watching TV. These are a few of my favorite shows:
