better live music

It’s starting to get a little chilly out and I’ve already got plans to see three shows this week. Why? Because the colder it is outside, the better live music becomes. Don’t believe me? Let me count the ways.

5 reasons why colder = better live music

More people = More heat

There’s nothing like body heat to warm you up. And where else are you going to find a ton of people moving around together in an enclosed space? At the venue! The more people there, the more heat is created, the hotter the show. Don’t forget to invite your friends. It’s for the well-being of everyone!

Dancing creates heat

We’ve talked about all the incredible things that dancing does, but let’s talk about the heat it creates. If you’re moving around in the club, you’re getting the body heat from above, and you’re exercising too, which, in turn, heats you up! Two birds, one song.

Bands will play harder to warm up

A lot of groups hit the stage in the same way every time, but when it’s cold, they might just play a little harder to heat up. Imagine your favorite rockers hitting the stage with the crisp fall or winter air hitting them from outside and them playing harder and faster than ever so they can be warm. Sounds like a good way to punch up the tunes to me.

Venues will turn on the heat

At the very least, the venue will probably have the heat turned on. In my apartment, I don’t have control of the heat, the landlord does, which means I’ve been bundled up in blankets for a few days now. At the venue though, they want the crowd to be comfortable, so more often than not, you’re going to have the heat turned on by the time you get there.

Tours kick off and head south

Okay, this one I’m making up in my own head, but think about it. If you were in a band, you’d probably want to go somewhere warmer too. So if you’re in the north, bands will probably kick off their tours there, and if you’re in the south, bands will probably head that way. It’s a win/win for everyone.
