Do you remember drive-in movies? They were a childhood staple for me – memories of my brother and I spilling popcorn in the back of my mom’s station wagon, the tinny sound from those little speakers, falling asleep on the ride home.
I guess everything old is new again at some point, but the drive-in experience was NOT one of those things I thought would make a comeback. This is a shot from a drive-in concert in Aarhus, Denmark, where singer-songwriter Mads Langer gave a live concert to a live crowd, socially distanced in their cars of course.
I love this for two reasons: first, the very inventiveness of artists in repurposing such an old-school platform, and second, the fact that people are so hungry for live music that they attended the concert in droves. It gives me hope for the future of music, and of humankind.
What inventiveness have you encountered lately?
My task: a bike ride with may brother and his family. My nephew, 7, has recently mastered bike riding and this was our first outing with him. Tooling around the paths in Golden Gate Park, life felt almost normal for a few hours (done!)
