I've heard the expression, "cry of happiness" before, however it never rung true until I watched some of my favorite artist live and in many cases front row *screams. Those moments were pure bliss. Man, I'm feel so blessed. 

Although,  I had to be at my poorest stage in life this past year, I still manage to scrap up some cash to go to these shows. haha, the struggle for music junkies. Sí se puede. 

Above are some pics I managed to snap at the shows I attended during 2013. I tend to live through photos; I almost got smashed taking them. However, there are many performances I didn't get to capture, I'll just have to cherish mentally. 

This year, obviously, I plan on seeing more artists and maybe traveling to music festivals ! I'll cross my fingers!
