I Miss Live Music

It’s Wednesday night and I’m sitting here all alone in front of my computer. I’d still happily be alone, but do you know where I’d rather be?

I’d like to be sitting in a bar somewhere, with a scotch and soda, listening to live music. Or I’d rather be at Palm’s Nightclub on Oxford Street dancing to some great retro tunes.

I love music. I listen to music for at least an hour each day: it makes me happy, it makes me sad.

My God, I wish this COVID-19 thing would end, and we could all go out again, listen to music, and dance. I can do it at home, but it’s not as much fun.

I also like take to photographs at gigs, and these are a few of my favourites.

    OMG!!! THIS!!! We’re all missing live music. My photography income includes shooting live gigs, but I miss the music more than I miss the money. Let’s share some pics when we get to our first live gigs after this lockdown. We’re booked to see Died Pretty in October in Melbourne. o)
