Some Minds

“Before we get started here I just wanna say — y’all have a beautiful festival here; I took a walk around earlier and it’s so beautiful!”

Then, this:

“Darling, we both knew it from the start /
Some minds are better kept apart. . .”

If music is my Higher Power…then this is my equivalent of ‘going to church.’  Certainly ranks among the more spiritually-connected experiences that I’ve had the privilege of witnessing in recent memory.

This was Flume at Electric Forest…and this is what I meant the other Sunday, that I was grateful to be amidst a crowd humming with the vibrations that accompany an earnest openness to feel something.

I mean just look at the reaction at 0:47.  We were READY.  And then ROWDY.  That chunky synth reverberated across the treeline & hit us right in the chest — the most satisfying way.

Even if Electric Forest continues to improve upon itself & I return in the coming years…there is just nothing like sharing in such a liberal, accepting, stimulating, and unified environment for the first time.

I’ll always remember this weekend…and I’m grateful that I was sober & present to create these memories.  Blackout drinking through shows that you spend no small amount of time & money on gets real old, real quick.  Feels good to see this world in a new light.
