seeking transcendence by joshglid

I want to see some live music tonight. Problem is, I don’t know what’s on. whose playing, or where. Nor do I have co-conspirators. 

The reason I want to see a gig is a desire for transcendence. Good live music can take you out of yourself, into another state. I want that so much. 

Not every gig can achieve it. I remember seeing Magic Dirt, back in the day. Some nights they were awful. Others, they lifted the roof. They took musical risks, they pushed the limits, and survived. That sort of night is what I am after. 

What transcendence have you found in live music?
