I went to the Mark Knopfler concert in Bangalore alone. I met three guys there and I met them again at the Joe Satriani concert (alone again because my friend was sick and couldn’t make it), so this time we hung out together. At the Satriani concert, I met five or six more people, including one American from Annapolis, Maryland, who’s working with an NGO in Bangalore! I also met a guy from a band called Shrapnel, a heavy metal band, whose songs you can hear here.
There was something about this Satriani concert though–all the fans were friendly and the atmosphere was really nice. We shared sips of water and Red Bull, whenever we were able to get a little “donated” to us.
Maybe music does bring people together and in a broad sense so does art.
