music is good for the soul

Last night (for the first time in a long time) I went and saw some amazing live music.  We headed to the Northcote Social Club (on a school night no less) to see two of my all time favourite musicians - Carus and Loren.  Carus has spent most of the year overseas so it was the first time we'd seen him play for a while!  I have been following this guy around the country (not in a stalkerish way, just because we've moved alot!) for almost 10 years now.  Can you believe that?  I first came across him when he supported the John Butler Trio all those years ago.  We've seen him play in bars with only a few of us actually paying attention to now packing out the Northcote Social Club where everyone seems to know all the lyrics to all the songs.  I couldn't even guess at how many times I've seen him play.  LOTS!  It's been great watching the transition!

Going to a Carus gig is one of my most favourite things to do (and you can tell because I couldn't stop smiling all night, and because today I am bouncing around like a giddy schoolgirl).  We danced, we drank, we sung - we just generally had a good time!  It also brings back a lot of happy memories of doing just that over the years with my friends and my husband.  Such good memories!

Last night, we were doubly blessed to also have Loren playing as well.  This guy is also amazing and well worth a look!  This song is my favourite Loren song :)

It's funny how I had temporarily forgotten how much I love music, and how I didn't realise just how much I missed live music until I was there again.

Live music is definitely therapeutic and you should seek some out this weekend.   If you can't, then watch these great video clips and dance around in your living room :)
