I performed at an open mike night in Jackson WY this summer. Some nights people would be quiet and listen to the music, some nights they made alot of noise at the bar. If I wanted to hear the music, I just had to move closer to the musicians. I got up to do my 3 song set one night, did two ballads, and the noise got louder & louder, so I launched into a raunchy version of "Drunken Sailor". It didn't make anyone quiet down, but I felt better.
There's music in every part of life, and when I look for that, I feel better. There also seem to be drunks in most parts of my life, and when I focus on them, I feel worse. I'll keep looking for better places to find music.
