My First Concert at the Hollywood Bowl

After talking about it for a year now, LB + I finally made it to the Hollywood Bowl, which is crazy charming: Tons of 30-something+ classical music aficionados, Europeans, old people, practically everyone drinking wine, eating top-shelf deli food on paper plates, drinking overpriced cabernet sauvignon from plastic cups. But what really mattered, what really enchants, is listening to Dvořák's New World Symphony + Sibelius's Violin Concerto outside, as LA is slowly grinding to a halt and the light slowly loses its edge, the sky filled with music notes that rise up Hollywood Hills, filling the air with folk songs and accented strings. Such a simple + perfect joy.
