This is my first video submission on my blog! The venue in St. Louis would not allow me to bring my Nikon camera into the building, but allowed me to bring my flip camera instead. I don’t understand why I can take HD video of the performers, but not HD photographs. Nevertheless, a couple of my friends drove to St. Louis to see Joshua Radin.
This is was the first concert that I actually drove to. It was on a Wednesday night and although I had to wake up early the next day, I still wanted to go. We prepared for the concert by listening to Joshua Radin music all the way to St. Louis.
There are many artists that are better live than in the studio and Joshua Radin is one of them. He blends soft guitar melodies with a whispering voice to create a soothing but catchy song. He played some songs off his newest album that injects a little rock n’ roll in his mostly laid-back line up. While his voice is extremely deep when he talks, his voice actually is quite high when he sings.
He would explain the background information of each song before he performed them. I enjoy when artists tell these stories. It puts reason behind each song and gives you a new perspective when you listen to the song again.
We were in the front of the crowd and soaking in all the excitement of the night. The concert was a blast and a brief escape from schoolwork. I found out he’ll performing in Columbia next year. I will no doubt be in the front row again.
