Also on Sunday, I accompanied for two children’s operas. One of them was called Green Eggs and Ham. It was a really, based on the Dr. Seuss story. Both operas were great and the kids and everyone did a really great job!
I’m watching this new band on Late Night with Seth Meyers called Bleachers. It seems like the newer bands are sort of picking up where the 80’s left off. There was such a drastic change in music from the 80’s to the 90’s, and many people weren’t comfortable with it. I guess you could say that Gun N Roses was a step between hair bands like Poison and Bon Jovi and Nirvana, but I still think alternative music was an awful big shock when it came on the scene. Everything just changed. My freshman year of college the Red Hot Chilli Peppers came out, and their first single was just so soft and quiet and different. I didn’t like it. I started to really like alternative music about ‘95 or ‘96, but most people still weren’t very comfortable with it. And after that music just sucked. I guess a lot of people turned to rap in the late 90’s. I was listening to some “urban” music in the late 90’s. I was finished with grad school and starting my life in the real working world. I feel like today’s bands are sort of picking up the thread where the bands in the 80’s left off, and I’m excited to see what they come up with.
