In the past couple months, social media has been filled with people finally returning to stages, arenas and stadiums for a pastime some thought would never return: live music.
A myriad of concerts have come through the area and many college students are flocking to see their favorite artist. Zoology and fisheries and wildlife sophomore Grace Duerr was able to trek to two of her favorite artists recently: Tyler, the Creator and Greta Van Fleet.
Tyler, the Creator not only was super interactive with the crowd, interacting with audience members and making people laugh, but it was Duerr’s first concert post pandemic, leaving her with a lingering feeling of normalcy.
“It was the first concert I went to where masks and tests were not required so it was very weird at first,” Duerr said. “I did still wear a mask, but seeing so many people without masks and not being super uncomfortable with it was honestly really weird for me.”
Duerr was finally able to interact with people yet again in an entertainment setting, making for a wholesome night of music with an artist she had liked since 2016 and her freshman year in high school.
