There is a common belief that there is often not enough to do on the weekend. When I Am Moody is not hosting a variety of events, it can often seem as though there is nothing going on. Fortunately, there is something going on almost every weekend. These things include the weekend concerts. These concerts are often the home town bands, playing covers from various songs from other bands.
I do not frequently tote the brilliance of a cover band. The local bands where I am from are not always the best. However, recently my faith in local bands has been reborn. I recently spent a brilliant weekend with an amazing cover band known as New Wave Nation. This band was brilliant and it gave me something to do on what would have been a boring and hot weekend.
Here are some things to consider when looking for a cover band to listen to on the weekend. These tips can help to ensure a fun weekend full of amazing music. This technique works for all kinds of music, not just the ‘80’s hits that I so much love to listen to.
- Take a look at your local music section of the paper. Write down the bars or scenes that you like to frequent and what is playing there. This will help you develop a plan as to who to see where and where you would like to avoid.
- Check out YouTube. Believe it or not, just about every band has something up on YouTube, even the smallest of the bands. Take into account that some of the videos will be shot from cell phones and home camcorders. The bands that are trying to make it big tend to put out more professional videos every now and again.
- Plan on seeing the bands and giving them a real effort of listening to them. If you like them, plan on seeing them more often. If you really like the band, consider posting information about them on your Facebook or Twitter. This can greatly help out the bands. Meanwhile the bands that you don’t like, you can ignore later.
