New Year’s Resolutions are funny.
I don’t normally subscribe to setting a resolution most years since I know it creates an unhealthy pressure for me to do something. Could I eat healthier? Sure. Could I play more music? Absolutely. But I prefer to do things on my own terms. That being said, I did go against the grain earlier this year when I decided I wanted to set a goal for myself: see more live music.
The rules were simple - try to go to a gig (local or touring) every 1-2 weeks, and playing a gig myself counted towards this tally. My reasoning for doing this and following these rules is that I felt like getting back into the local music scene. So… did it work?
I asked myself that very question at the end of 2019, the answer is: yes and no. I attended/played 26 shows this year, which is a little over 2 per month. Not bad, me!
Other fun stats for 2019:
- Movies seen: 34
- New instruments: Several
- New YouTube videos: 1
- Sightings/signatures of Rush’s Geddy Lee: 1
Goals for 2020:
- Release an album
- Play/attend more live music
- More content on YouTube (subscribe, please!) and this website
