declan mckenna at @spaceballroom. @manicpresents.
a few words to share. i was in a room full of teenagers who were so excited to see their favorite artist. i knew it’d be the smallest room that declan would play, so i got tix and readied myself. there was an excellent playlist pre show and hearing kids singing along to songs that were popular in my high school days put a huge smile on my face. and then kelly clarkson came on and the whole room started to sing, and i cried a little... because this is what teenagers should be doing; going to concerts with friends, singing,laughing, and having fun, not being worried about gun laws and the government or their friends, family and mentors dying. i think the kids are alright, i think the kids are all right. we have to keep watch and be diligent and protect them and make policy changes and i hope that we can accomplish real change after the recent events.
