Lose yourself in the magic of your very first concert with Submerged in Euphoria, a compilation of interviews and reflections written by the high-school writers of the 826CHI Teen Press Corps, who attended Pitchfork Music Festival in July of 2018.
As Vocalo host Jill Hopkins states in the book’s foreword, “Being young is having the freedom, the bandwidth, and the passion to let the music you’ve discovered wash completely over you. Allowing yourself to get completely, unhealthily obsessed with a band, with a song, with a single lyric is a luxury of youth. Being young means every day brings a first: your first band, your first guitar, your first concert, your first festival. In this volume you’ll read many young people’s firsts.”
Celebrate with these high-school writers as they discover new artists, interview some of their musical inspirations, and learn how to let go of their insecurities. This energetic collection of essays, interviews, and poems is perfect for music lovers and anyone who wants to relive the magic of their first concert.
