The broad definition of a mixtape is a collection of songs. The directions for this assignment weren’t really clear on what was needed to do so I chose some songs that were important to me. The songs I chose for this mixtape are from artists that I saw live and really enjoyed their shows. Those songs included in this playlist are the ones I enjoyed the most and were my favorite ones that I saw the artists perform live.
These songs bring me back to when I constantly searched for new artists and albums constantly. It seemed like almost every couple weeks I would be going to DC and going to U Street Music Hall or the 930 Club to go see a live show. But since I’ve started school and gotten really invested into on campus athletics and maintaining high grades it’s been difficult to indulge in those experiences. Even during the summer when I am free, the artists I may want to see aren’t touring or have already stopped by DC earlier in the year. It’s just a luxury I can’t afford anymore and I guess that’s the problem of growing up and having responsibilities.
