It’s been quite some time since I’ve shared glimpses of the music created, produced and performed here locally in Kenosha.

Whether it’s Union Park Tavern, Public Brewing Co., Rustic Road, Kenosha Creative Space or any of our local venues, there is never a shortage of opportunities to support Kenosha bands.

And while I’ve taken some time off from sharing that experience firsthand in photo and video, that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped going.

Therefore, below, please find videos from three local venues where I had the pleasure of seeing some of my fellow local musicians share their skills in recent months.

Inside the Mind of Daniel Thompson (podcast)

Ep. 13: The problem of being overly positive Inside the Mind of Daniel Thompson

One of the biggest things that I think people just "all about that positive" don't understand is that, at its core, it's a clear sign of deflection, in my opinion.  In this episode, I explain my thought process behind that conclusion, toxic positivity and encourage you to embrace the positives and negatives of life.  — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/mind-of-daniel-thompson/support
