Going to see a live show can take you away from the worries of the day, what's happening in the world and help inspire. Music is important to our daily lives, to sooth pain, get connected, or to just plain dance around the living room for the hell of it. There are 1000's of extraordinarily talented performers of all genres traveling the country nightly from city to city playing at venues that cost $5-$25 for a great night. Live Nation and American Idol have brainwashed the general population that you have to be a gigantic star to be great. Any one reading this article knows that high ticket prices does not mean you are going to see a talented performer...it just means there were a lot of marketing dollars spent... and a lot of money spent on ridiculous production. Which is why they have to charge so much money for ROI. Get out to your Folk clubs, small rock clubs, church basements, house concerts... support the players that are eating ramin noodles in exchange for the love of writing, performing and bringing it to the people. Not for making millions. Don't stop seeing music! Just go to the places where you can pay a lot less and see new and talented people. I have never understood why anyone thought Madonna was worth paying $250 for, it's mind boggling to me. I manage a musician who's ticket price never exceeds $25/$30... his fans of 20 years could and would pay more to see him and we know this...but he has no desire to increase the price just because he can. Support your local music, and enjoy an inexpensive and great night...that very possibly will leave you really inspired!
