Performance Summary:

  1. Note the names of the artists performing, the names of the songs, and describe their instrumentation (guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, sax, etc.).
  2. Be as specific as possible in describing the genres (and sub-genres, if possible) of the music, e.g. if its rock, is it heavy metal, punk, alternative, etc.
  3. For each song or piece, note the name and writer (if possible), and describe the music. You might consider:

a. the tempo (whether it was slow, medium, or fast)

  2. Of the three, which was your favorite/least favorite performance? Why?
  3. Would you want to attend an actual live performance by any of these artists? Why or why not?
