Probably the best thing about music is its ability to bring people together. As cheesy as that sounds, it has become more apparent after making the local Melbourne music scene a permanent fixture in my life. Seeing bands come together to support and promote each others efforts really shows a sense of belonging, and is a great incentive for new artists to come out of the woodwork. Another great thing is when bands and artists combine. Probably one of the best showcases/parties you could attend is a gallery opening with live acts. Or live graffiti with a DJ. Really, anything, so creatively stimulating, if you do neither you cant help but feel slightly inadequate. But inspired, nonetheless.
