On Saturday, April 6th, Topekans from near and far gathered at the Landing Bar southeast of town to participate in an event catered to address the ever-growing issue of mental health. The Mental Music Scene consisted of multiple bands, speakers, and food vendors all coming together for a great cause: mental health. Government teacher Mr. Bach was one of the many people in attendance that night.

The main purpose was to raise awareness for mental health concerns in the Shawnee County area,” explained Bach.

The event was organized by a group called Hope Through Headphones whose main goal is to help talk about mental health through music. Bach agreed that the event was very meaningful.

“I would totally advocate events like this for our students,” said Bach. “Live music is a ton of fun, especially when it’s for a charitable cause. Live music allows one to forget their fears and stresses for a few hours while rocking out.”

His favorite band of the night came all the way from Joplin, Missouri. They call themselves Me Like Bees, and, according to Bach, were epic live.

“I’ve been listening to Me Like Bees for about a year. Imagine a cross between Manchester Orchestra and Modest Mouse and you’re right there,” said Bach.

Bach attended the Mental Music Scene with his co-worker and bandmate, Mr. Randy Crome. Both music lovers greatly appreciated the message of the overall event and would recommend it to anyone who struggles with mental health.

Topeka’s second annual Mental Music Scene was a huge success. It’s a proven fact that playing a musical instrument can help alleviate stress, so why not give it a shot? And, as always, know that mental health is so important to a person’s overall well-being. Great rockers are only as great as their minds.
