Vampire Weekend at Rough Trade East. First live gig of the year, of the decade, if youâre counting, and itâs there. Why we do it. Why we do everything. Itâs all about that feeling. The tingling. The joy, the bliss, the out of the every day, the wonder, the purity of music. Itâs why I do what I do, it has made my life (for better or worse) what it is. Is it the pursuit of happiness? No, itâs not that complicated, itâs just about the music and how it makes me feel. Itâs about the people and being alive and how brilliant and simple and simply brilliant that can be. Without music life would be a mistake, Nietzsche famously said. Tonight, I believe it, yes, I believe it.
