Last night I went to the best concert of my life, now that is a big deal for me because I’ve been to quite a few concerts but this one takes the cake. I’ve always loved Mackemore & Ryan Lewis even before “Thrift Shop” went huge. Their music is real, they’re real. And last night proved that 100%.
Like I said, I’ve been to quite a few concerts but this one had soul to it, it was all about the music and the fans. It didn’t have a huge stage, all these lights and skimpy dancers; it had Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, his band and his fans. I’ve never seen an artist so pumped and vibing off the crowd so much. It was real. Sure, my legs and feet went numb from standing so long, I sweat enough I could wring out my tank top and I’m pretty sure I went partially deaf, but it was all worth it because of the music. It had just so much truth.
It got me to thinking, why is the music industry such a sell out these days? No one is real, they’re all following commands from big CEO companies and it seems like it’s all about the money and how little clothes you wear. I don’t understand how the world got so inverted but along the way it did, things that used like truth, honesty, love and respect, don’t matter anymore. That’s a scary thought of what the future of the world holds, especially since the music industry has such an impact of adolescents and adults.
