So many emotions, so little time.
Look, I’m technically only one day into the 29th year of my life and I’m already living my best life. Consider me extremely lucky but tonight I got together with my closest friends and I attended a concert in Hollywood. When I found out The War and Treaty was coming to Los Angeles, I lost my absolute mind (I have the texts to prove it), then I found out that they’d be here the day after my birthday and it felt like The Universe was smiling down on me.
So here I am, just getting home and completely awake from the magical time I just experienced. I knew they were special the moment that I listened to their latest album. The magic jumped through the speakers and though my expectations for their live performance were high, they completely blew them out of the water.
My favorite part about seeing an up-and-coming artist live is seeing the shock in their face when people fill the venue up just to see them live. The amazement when they realize that their music touched so many people is truly what makes these smaller concerts feel like an intimate, yet magnificent experience. The War and Treaty brought the people out and their eclectic audience is a beautiful indication of how powerful music can bring people together.
The War and Treaty made magic on that stage and if their vocals on their album blew your mind, then watching them live will leave you in absolute shock. Michael and Tanya are all chemistry on that stage, their banter is genuine, the glances they steal between songs make you fee like you’re looking in on an intimate moment and their vocal runs are completely out of this world.
This duo deserves to be witnessed by as many people as possible and if I can push their music towards your lovely ears, then consider me doing just that. Maybe it’s my period just around the corner, maybe it’s the fact that I was surrounded by my closest friends and maybe it was the fact that The War and Treaty left their hearts on that stage; but I am feeling extremely emotional tonight.
I sit on this couch, with a heart full of gratitude, a soul full of music and fingers that can’t write enough positive words to describe what it’s like to witness The War and Treaty live. So please do yourself a favor and see if they’re coming to a city near you.
Special shout out to my magical friends, I don’t know how I got so lucky but I thank The Universe every single day. I am not worthy of these magnificent people and yet they continue to love me despite the craziness.
