The Insiders: Catch a Hawk and a Dove inside the Capitol Center tonight

Hordes of New Yorkers flee the city every weekend and do their part to contribute to the clogging of I-93 on Friday afternoon, a quest that has been quite successful. This weekend likely won’t be any different, except the fact that some of those New Yorkers are coming specifically to see you!

One of the birdiest named bands of all-time will be making its Concord debut tonight when Brooklyn-based Hawk and Dove perform alongside local celebrities Darlingside as part of the Spotlight Cafe at the Capitol Center for the Arts, beginning at 8. Band members John Kleber and Elijah Miller admit they aren’t sure which is Hawk and which is Dove, but they are sure they can play music. Also, they’ve been described as the “loudest quiet band you have ever heard,” which doesn’t make any sense. And probably limits their ability to book library gigs.

Hawk and Dove make no decibel-related claims themselves, but they are excited for their first New Hampshire appearance.

“I like to think we will offer Concordians a pretty unique musical experience,” Miller said. “And when we’re all firing together . . . I’ve been told many times, it is a sight and sound unlike any other.” To learn more, visit

Also from New York, but not named after any birds, is author Mike Lupica, who will be making an appearance at Gibson’s Bookstore tonight at 6 with his new book, QB1. The book combines two letters and one number, and also combines a tale based on the Manning family with the crazy culture of high school football in Texas. Gibson’s would like to note that Lupica’s time in the store is limited, and if the signing line is long, it’s possible they may have to limit the number of books signed per person. If you can’t make it, call 224-0562 or email to have a copy set aside to be signed for you.
