Dirt Road Anthem
Do you miss live music? Me too. This is the longest I have gone without live music since I was 12 years old. Music is my therapy and a way to regulate my emotions.
Earlier this year, I spent the day with my friend Lucy and Microwave and made a music video about the joy of road-tripping and concerts. I took this trip literally two weeks before we all shut down.
Who knew it would be one of my last of the year.
I miss live music. I miss getting ready to go to the show. I miss road trips and meeting up with friends I haven’t seen since the last show. I miss the feeling of the bass drum in my chest. I miss singing along to words with other humans who have felt the same way. I miss spending too much money on merch. I miss that feeling in the pit of my stomach right before a band I am really excited to see comes on…that “oh shit THIS IS IT” moment, followed by minutes of complete joy and disconnect from all the stress in my world. I drove down to Florida, made this video, had this adventure with Lucy only a few short weeks before we were stuck inside because of COVID. It was one of the last shows I went to, and one of my most favorite adventures I have ever taken by myself. I ended up sleeping in my car after the show because I couldn’t find a hotel and ended up having the most magical sunrise on the beach. It scares me to think about a future without live concerts and entertainment. It has been my safe space, my family since I was a kid. I have planned on starting a series like this, documenting some of the shows I go to, but then the world fell apart. I am glad I have this memory for now. Music is a movement. It connects us through sound and word. It also creates a vulnerable space for other artists to be inspired, both emotionally and visually. I miss it, I miss my friends, I miss the lights, and I think most of all, I miss the release.
This is dedicated to every weirdo kid out there, getting ready to drive to the rock show. It was never a phase. 🤘🏻 ✨

The Road Home
“My other plan was to just lay down and die.”
Sometimes I step away and look at my life as some camera filming me, but I don’t look for the photographer, life is shorter than that.
But what I figured is that the photographer is me, I decide what I film, in what colors and what lighting, who are the secondary characters and to whom should I give the main parts.
But still..pain is pain, and grief is grief.
Aren’t we gonna talk about Sloan Struble?
