I’m really excited about this post. The Listener met this last Tuesday, we had a new face, and it went really well. It was a lot of fun, we touched on some good conversational topics, and it was really cool to witness someone open up as a result of music. The group went ahead with last meeting’s planned discussion and talked about music that makes you feel free or gives you a sense of peace. In hindsight, I thought this was an excellent idea, as it made it easier for our new member to get comfortable and open up.
As far as the music that was played, there was a lot more music played than I had initially planned. As a result, the songs I am going to list are not the complete playlist, but they will give you an idea of what was played. Some songs were written about in the last blog post, and some are new.
- “An Artifact” – Reflections
- “The Suffering” – Coheed & Cambria
- “The Dream Club Murders” – Dead Poetic (I HIGHLY recommend listening to this song)
- “Louder Than Thunder” – The Devil Wears Prada
- “Your Shirt Would Look Better With a Columbian Necktie” – I Killed the Prom Queen
- “Firstwake” – Silent Planet
- “Free & Lonely” – X Ambassadors
- “Running With the Boys” – Lights
- “Going In Blind” – P.O.D.
- “Alpha Centauri” – Salvage My Dream
- “Modern Day Saints” – Alistair Hennessey
- “I’ll Get By” – Pianos Become the Teeth
- “Stay Together For the Kids” – Blink 182
I encourage all of you to check these songs out. These were all pitched into the group because they elicit feelings of freedom and peace in someone. Maybe they can do the same for you. If not, who knows, you may find your new favorite band.
Just a heads up, next week (4/21) there isn’t an on-site meeting, but there is a show at the Northstar Room I and some of the members will be going to. If you have any questions about the group or you want to consider this your first meeting, you’re more than welcome to come. A few bands on the bill are Unturned, Wanderer, Let//Go, and Conveyer. Come out, have fun, and experience in person what music can do for you.
Again, here’s my email if you have any questions. See you soon.
