Earlier in the year, I found myself conversing about concerts, venues, and musicians with coworkers around the coffee press at work. One of the older colleagues mentioned that he may have seen Nirvana live in concert but that he couldn’t remember for sure. I was in disbelief at the notion that one could forget seeing such an impressive band live.
I’m unsure if forgetting such things is part of getting older, or if it is just a matter of having attended an unmemorable concert. Whatever the case may be, I’ve decided to make a record of the concerts I go to so that I can be confirm all of this in my old age.
