Sweet, sweet sounds of soul music

10:00 CST (no more haikus, sadly)

Pitchfork Music Festival 2017 was beyond a success with the only sore spot being The Avalanches unfortunate sad cancellation due to a severe illness in a group member’s family. 

Regardless, I provided the what, who, where, when, but maybe the why is a question mark. 

We sometimes congregate together as family members in music. We become a unit in musical stanzas that tend to trancend what we can describe at times.

The most important part to take away from this weekend is that we, as a people, can be generous, understanding, loving, caring, helpful, and forever grateful to the musical artist we love. 

Unity is not something we should take for granted. We need it now more than ever.
