Favorite concert experience

My favorite concert experience would have to be seeing Mac DeMarco opening for Tame Impala at Red Rocks in 2016. It was only a few months after Currents was released and I wasn't really familiar with either artist at the time. My sister convinced me to go to the show and I'm extremely grateful that she did because I believe it helped shape my music taste for the following few years. 

Hobbies / Interests / Fun Facts / Campus Involvement

Besides being a director in SCOPE, I work concessions at the Englert Theatre downtown which is a great gig. My coworkers are great (a handful of them are current SCOPE members and alum!) and it's a blast getting to see so many great acts perform in such an intimate setting. When I'm not catching up on my class work, there's a good chance you'll find me at a local venue catching a show or playing pool at Gabe's.
