At This Casino, Everyone Wins

On Saturday night a friend and I attended Joyce Jonathan’s concert at Casino de Paris, a venue that has been around since 1880. Can you imagine that this theatre has lasted through two world wars and the Great Depression?

Joyce Jonathan is a French singer whose two albums, “Caractère” and “Sur Mes Gardes,” I have been listening to on repeat for weeks to prepare.

In the past few years, I’ve found that my favorite musicians are female singer-songwriters whose songs have a lot of spirit, strength, and vulnerability.

Live music is one of the most pleasurable things in life.

Have you been to any concerts lately?
