People often speak of basking in the sounds of summer – the crash of the ocean’s waves against the shore, the chirping of a hummingbird, the bursting of fireworks on the Fourth of July. That’s all really special and adorable, but when I think of my summer soundtrack, only three short words come to mind: rock and roll. Since I was in high school and through the upcoming months in which my schedule is loaded with some monster concerts, I have spent many a summer’s day at epic music festivals. These shows have shaped not only my views on live music and my favorite artists, but have also connected me to others fans who share the same enthusiasm for live performances (as well as some recreational substances) and the power of a good song.
