I had the privilege to see my favourite band live this year, after about four years of waiting. I discovered them when I was around the age of 13-14 and just finding myself. I liked their sound. I liked their style. I liked their inspiration. I liked how they made me feel this sense of awe I’ve never felt from music before. Thirty Seconds To Mars made me feel alive; they made me feel like I was a part of something. Like part of a family. A family of believers. I don’t quite know. That’s the beauty of it - the not knowing. When something as simple yet magical as music makes you feel so intricate, ambitious and motivated, you don’t really need to know why or what or when or how. You just know that you can. To some people, this kind of belief in a band or music sounds ridiculous. To me, it is the most sense I’ve ever known.
Thank you Jared, Shannon + Tomo. It was an amazing show
