Sometimes, the music finds you.

Serendipity is key. These days we are able to read or hear about an artist’s back story before we experience their art. I knew nothing about these guys before they played except that they don’t use the stage, they play in the audience area. I saw the crowd make way for them and then – BOOM. The band, audience, and venue were all one mass of crazy unity. There was crowd surfing, call and response, and trash – literally! See the video below…
