There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

Finding Sugar Man

I didn't know what to expect when I rented the documentary Searching for Sugar Man, and I most certainly was surprised, humbled and inspired by the movie. I won't give away the story here ( I couldn't do justice to it anyway).

But when I found out that the now nearly seventy year old was touring again, and coming to little old SLC, there was little doubt about going to see the artist. On a perfect spring evening in downtown, I found a small sushi spot, enjoyed a meal in the warm sun whilst waiting for the doors to open.
The line to get into the show wrapped around the block, and it was the first time I'd ever see such an electic mix of people for a concert. Rodriguez's mellow, folksy style, and humble nature was truly a site to behold.
Give it a listen, see the documentary, and become moved by one amazing story.
