Self-help through music, art and poetry — that’s what local depression and anxiety support-group, No More Bad Days, strives to provide.
Through a new video series titled “Back Alley Sessions,” the group has begun providing a platform for local artists and bands. Performers located in or traveling through Rexburg can use the sessions as an opportunity to share their music with anyone.
The first episode surfaced online on February 23, and featured singer and songwriter Noah Shelton, from the band Poor Sports. Shelton performed two original songs on the series, the first being “Ms. Sunshine and the Lonely Boy.”
Since the first video, the sessions have gained popularity and attracted local performers to share their music.
The most recent episode, filmed in the dressing rooms beneath The Romance Theater, featured local musician Bo Brusco, from the band Vic Fox. Brusco performed an original song, “The Opera,” and will feature another song later this week.
Interested viewers can subscribe to No More Bad Days’ YouTube channel for future sessions and performances.
For individuals living with depression or anxiety, the support-group meets every Sunday at 6:00 p.m. in the Pinnacle Point movie theater. The meetings are open to anyone seeking an environment of help, support and love.
