WASHINGTON D.C. – I’m a music nut who’s part of a music-crazed family. We have conga drums, a piano, a bass clarinet and many other instruments all over the house, plus a basement filled with Fillmore posters. And don’t get me started about the vinyl. At one point or another every single day, we’re either playing or listening to music, and/or attending or playing in shows.
So that’s my long way of getting to this very serious question: Do you make a point of seeing live music when on a business trip?

If so, are you content to find a nice jazz quartet in a hotel bar, or do strive to find a club or big stadium show where no one speaks your language?
While I was commuting back and forth to Barcelona over the past year, I made a point of entering the city on my list of cities to track on Songkick in case a good show popped up while I’d be in town. None ever did, but at least I was prepared. I’m also raising this question tonight, because I have some great photos from the Carlos Santana and Rod Stewart concert last night at the Verizon Center.
