With lockdown keeping us mainly indoors, and concerts still far out of sight, here’s exactly what you need to make your own music oasis in your home.
Lockdown got you down? 2020 was set to be a great year with so many concerts and festivals going on, and then quarantine shut away our hopes and dreams, and left many of us listening to Spotify on repeat. With no view in sight of when live music will fully return to it’s pre-COVID status, you might want to look into making your own music oasis within your house.
Sure, you could just get by with rocking YouTube videos via your laptop, and calling it good, but we all know that won’t quite cut it for the extreme music lovers who want a bit more bass, a good place to enjoy, and a stacked library.
With a comfy listening chair, plenty of organisation, a rocking sound-system, and a few fun gadgets, you’ll be all set for listening at home. And, if you hire a mate to toss beer on you, get in your personal space, and provide heaps of B.O., then you might just be able to close your eyes and imagine you’re at a concert.
Oh, and you’ll probably want some records to go alongside too, so why not pick up some of the most beautiful records around while you’re at it.
