A long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last...
We enter this last month of 2020 quoting our beloved Counting Crows, carrying with us all the travel plans and music dreams that we had to freeze because of the pandemic.
It's been a hard time for music lovers, but our passion didn't fade since we kept nurturing it through great virtual concerts.
Since the beginning of the "Paradise City" adventure, we have been pinning loads of artists that we discovered thanks to live streamed shows.
We are definitely looking forward to meet all these great musicians in real life!
While we wait to experience these blissful moments, let's keep filling up the list! ;)
Here we go with our December picks.
Check back in regularly for updates and enjoy the Spotify playlist we created for you this month!
