Observing and Analyzing a Live Performance
"[I]s it the artist(s) that encourage community or is the community that encourages the artist? I’ve observed the relationship between audience and musicians time and time again although it was not until I accepted this assignment that I put in every painstaking detail into connecting the two. What could be better than to start this analysis with a band that I have admired since the beginning of my identity in the metal/hardcore scene? A band I’ve seen numerous times since the first time I laid eyes and ears on their live performance on July 5, 2005, Wisconsin’s very own Misery Signals."
