Recently there was an English artist I like playing at a nearby venue. I really wanted to go, but I didn’t hear of the show until the day it was happening. Naturally, I texted my husband and several friends to see if there was anyone available or interested in going with me. No one was.
I asked a couple of co-workers to see if they could go, but they had plans. One of them told me that if I really wanted to see this artist, I should just go by myself. The idea was immediately fascinating to me; I had never really contemplated doing something as simple as attending a concert alone. Which is kind of crazy. I love concerts, and living in Los Angeles, there are a lot of small shows happening every night of the week. How had I never been to a concert by myself?
