Don’t ask me why I obsessively look to rock n’ roll bands for some kind of model for a better society. I guess it’s just that I glimpsed something beautiful in a flashbulb moment once, and perhaps mistaking it for prophecy have been seeking it’s fulfillment ever since. And perhaps that nothing else in the world ever seemed to hold even this much promise” – Lester Bangs 1977
It might be a bit cliched to quote Lester Bangs, but that’s a pretty apt summation of why I write (read: obsess) over music. And sometimes I get really frustrated when I want to tell my roommates about a really awesome band, and they return my enthusiasm with blank stares. More disheartening than annoying. But now I can tell everyone everything I’m feeling about something at any given time! Oh the excitement!
I go to school at Boston University with Akhil, and I’m a journalism major. I also write for Performer Magazine and play in the band You Can Be A Wesley.
