J. Cole 4 Your Eyez Only Concert

I ran into a friend of mine at work the day before the second show of J.Cole’s concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. I was checking my email as I ran into her and said damn, there is a concert happening tonight and tomorrow and I wish I knew in advance. She asked me who was performing and if I wanted to go. From the pics you can see that I said yes. We made sure to get there to catch the opening acts as one of my favorite musicians was opening (Anderson Paak). All opening acts were really good (check out Ari Lennox) but I do wish Anderson Paak had a longer set(he was so damn good). 

J.Cole did not disappoint anyone that night as well. His energy was really good and he didn’t lose the crowd at all the entire night. It was a packed house and there were so many different kinds of people at this concert enjoying his music. The one thing that stood out to me the most was when J.Cole started speaking to the crowd and was talking about sometimes to just be in the moment. You don’t always have to plan out everything, that it’s okay to just live in the moment. This stood out to me because my entire reason for being at that concert was because my friend and I decided to do just that. It’s so easy to forget to be spontaneous sometimes. 

J.Cole, I really tried to loosen my NYC chill mode stance at this concert. NYC guys aren’t the only ones that cross their arms at concerts, nodding their heads enjoying the music. I don’t know what to do with myself if I’m not documenting events (ha). I’d definitely see J.Cole again in concert as he has good music and can perform live. 


New York Transit Museum

I was born and raised in NYC and the trains are a way of life living here. I love trains and have somehow never visited the Transit Museum before. Despite all of the issues that MTA is facing (if you’re not living in NYC, trust me this is the worst service imaginable now), I am still quite fond of the trains here. I won’t go into why it’s so bad on this post because this is about the museum. I am working on something about the state of MTA and will share in the near future. For now, enjoy the nostalgia that is found at this place. If you love trains, or just want to get a glimpse into some of the history of transit in NYC, visit the Transit Museum in Brooklyn.
