I’m currently coming off a whirlwind of emotion from the last 24 hours. Last night, I saw one of the greatest shows in my concert-going career; Geographer played at Mezzanine here in San Francisco. I’m a huge fanboy of them and catch all their shows in SF.
Talk about a hyper-emotional experience; I was in my element during their set. I was fully aware of the goofy smile on my face, but I had not a care in the world. During the show, I was transported to a place where love definitely exists.
I got lucky and caught the drumstick Mike used after “Verona.” That was the best gift ever… or so I thought. Later on in the set, Mike comes out into the audience and danced right in between my friends and I.
Warning: I am not responsible for the emotional reaction to dancing next to one of my musical idols.

After the song and Mike went back on stage, I started crying. Not just small tears, but a full on and outright SOB SESSION. I was bent over and emotionally spent. It was a euphoria that knocked me out.
How is this love?
As you know, if you read this blog, is that I’m on a Quest for Love. I’m trying to find the recipe that helps give me the feeling or sense of “love.” Dammit if this didn’t hit it right on the head.
The checklist so far:1. Geographer (favorite band) 2. Friends in tow 3. Caught drumstick 4. Dance party in the crowd!
Isn’t it crazy how music can make you forget about worries in your default life; live music, especially. What is it about this band and their music that gives me such a fuzzy feeling? How epic were my experiences at this concert and why did they sort of knock me over with emotion? What did my cronies feel? Do they feel in a similar way? Does Geographer know how awesome they are?
What is the soundtrack to love?
As always, comment below or email me privately with your thoughts.
