One generally thinks of genius in terms of “nerd”, or academic knowledge. Don’t overlook artistic genius. I’ve been a fan of the Dave Matthews Band for many years and they still don’t cease to amaze me with their talent. With the recent additions of Tim Reynolds, Rashawn Ross and Jeff Coffin, the band has only gained a touch of magic. On 7/27, I caught the show at Lakewood in Atlanta, GA. It was a packed amphitheater and we were all really impressed with the new band members. Warren Haynes and his band Gov’t Mule opened for the show and it was phenomenal. And now for the intellectual piece;
Musical genius is around us at all times. Luckily, we have radio, iPods and YouTube to surround ourselves with the sounds we love. My recommendation though, is to get out and watch your favorite musician live and as close as you can get. Live concerts are the type of thing most people let slip by because of cost and time, but if you look past that and go – you’ll probably find yourself extremely satisfied and inspired. Take pictures, have a good time and don’t forget to appreciate the talent.
