About a month and a half ago, I had the opportunity to buy tickets to see one of my favorite artists in recent years, Post Malone. In my adolescent years I was never a huge concert go-er. I only saw a handful of performers, and while some left me with a positive experience, there wasn't anything I consider memorable. That changed Tuesday night.

As Post (that's what we fans call him) ascended from his aphotic tunnel onto the stage, the anticipation of the ensuing performance was palpable. His repertoire seemed  to be chosen carefully, and the order in which the songs were played were undeniably calculated. The fans were in a frenzy, the atmosphere was electric, and a guitar-smashing climax during his song Rockstar culminated a perfect performance. Post Malone might just be one of the best performers of this generation.
