I don’t get music, Part CLXXVII

Every time I listen to Sound Opinions on NPR, I have no idea what they’re talking about. No idea. It’s all a foreign language to me.

This is supposed to be a great area to go see live music. I never go. And it’s not just that I don’t go. The truth is, I don’t think I’d even like most live music. Then again, that’s mostly an assumption built up a lot of other assumptions.

I’m going to see some live music on Thursday–the North Carolina Symphony performing Beethoven’s 9th at Duke Chapel. But apparently it’s not even going to very good; The Independent doesn’t even label it an INDY PICK.

One thought on “I don’t get music, Part CLXXVII

  1. I’m going to have to go with you on this one. IMHO, I’d much rather listen after it’s been through some distant studio: chopped up, spiced up, and well blended. There are very few live performances I’ve felt just compelled to attend; usually I can’t stand braving the drunks (in the venue or on the streets)… but perhaps you can forgo that ‘bonus’ at Duke Chapel. Let us know. 🙂
