Go to a live event outside your preferred genre:
With a few other Vis Com students, I went to Sela Bar to see a reggae band. They have a reggae night every Wednesday, and I had been wanting to go for a while because I heard lots of good things.
The band was really great, they play every week, but feature different guest singers. They were all very talented, and really friendly; interacting with the audience. The atmosphere was upbeat – the bar itself is focussed towards a stage but with seating areas where you can sit and have drinks and pizza whilst watching.
I found the experience really positive, and a few of us plan to go back regularly on Wednesday’s to see the Reggae. Sela bar also have other interesting events on each week; such as poetry evenings, different kinds of live music and also art exhibitions. I will definitely go along to these, based on the success of this evening.
