I went to the Joshua Radin concert a couple of weeks ago and had a really great time. The music was great, the weather was cold and the crowd at the Blue Note was decent to say the least. As we were waiting for the singer to come out, I noticed all the gadgets people had brought into the venue.
At one point, I had my cell phone, flip camera and point-and-shoot camera all on stage and I wasn’t alone. Gone are the days when you would just show up at concerts and just listen to music. Today, handheld gadgets are making any concert enthusiasts a reporter.
People at the concert, including myself, were tweeting what was happening throughout the night. They were recording their favorite songs so that they could upload it to Youtube once they got back home. People were taking photos of the singer and of their friends using their point-and-shoot cameras.
While the main reason to go to a concert hasn’t changed, the way we behave during those concerts has. Conclusion, we’re a generation of multitaskers and we don’t know how else to operate.
