M2M Day 220: Vulfpeck, live at The Fillmore

This post is part of Month to Master, a 12-month accelerated learning project. For June, my goal is to develop perfect pitch.

Throughout the Month to Master project, I’ve used certain challenges as excuses to do things I’ve wanted to do for a while.

For example, I used the fitness theme of Backflip Month to make a change to my diet. I used Rubik’s Cube Month to justify creating cube-inspired art. And I used Hebrew Month to read/think a lot about technology and the future (in preparation for my Hebrew conversation on these topics).

This month is music-themed, so it was the perfect excuse to go see a concert… Thus, last night, I went to see Vulfpeck (currently one of my favorite bands) live at The Fillmore in San Francisco.

Vulfpeck’s style is somewhere between old school funk, soul, and jam band. They put on an amazing show, and while I’m not sure it helped with my perfect pitch, I’m very glad I went.


This is the part of the post where I’m supposed to recommend my favorite Vulfpeck songs, so you can check them out if you’re interested. They have a pretty eclectic mix of songs, so I’m not exactly sure what to choose…

I’m just going to leave it up to the band: When they went on Late Night TV, they played their song “1612”, which means they must think it’s a decent gateway drug to their stuff.

My personal favorites in no particular order include: Animal Spirits, Outro, Conscious Club, Cory Wong, Game Winner, Wait for the Moment, A Walk to Remember, and Back Pocket.
