Concerts, concerts, and more concerts!


Cassandra Mychalowycz

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely adore concerts!  I think there’s something so special about seeing a band you love up-close-and-personal.  You can hear their voices without autotune, rock out to their percussion tracks, and just soak up the atmosphere of being pressed up against so many other hardcore fans.  This past weekend I had the chance to go to a music festival in Geneva called Caribana.  There, I watched Imagine Dragons perform from right up against the stage, and sang along with Fun from a little bit further away.  In the middle of Fun’s We Are Young it even started down pouring, which only added to the energy of the crowd.  Dancing at a concert in the rain was on my sister’s bucket list, and I was so glad that I was able to check that one off with her.  We sang and screamed so much that the entire upper-octave of my voice was shot the following day, but it was a blast.  Going to Caribana made me realize just how much Nashville has to offer in terms of music, and made me excited for planning this upcoming year of concerts.  I knew as I left that I definitely had to blog about this feature of the city!

Before leaving campus, I found out that so many of my favorite bands were going to be giving concerts in Nashville in June.  I almost didn’t want to leave for summer break!  Darren Criss, One Direction (yes I love them—no judging!), Fall Out Boy, and my absolute favorite band Marianas Trench were all scattered around Nashville over the span of a couple of weeks.  I used my devastation, however, to fuel my quest for finding concerts to be performed as soon as I get back to school in August.

I’ve already got tickets to see the final leg of Taylor Swift’s Red tour, accompanied by Ed Sheeran (one of my absolute favorite musicians as of late!).  Then I found out that Fall Out Boy is coming to Memphis with Panic! at the Disco, and I got my boyfriend tickets for our anniversary.  The only reason they didn’t come to Nashville on that tour was probably because they already had visited the Ryman in June. :)

When you factor in all of these big headlining groups, in addition to less-known performers, and the talent that we have here at Vanderbilt, you have a mish mash of enough musical performances to make your head spin.  I love that about being at school in Nashville, and I think you will too! :)

…Until next time!
