The Insiders: Today we invent Netflix spinoffs, tomorrow you watch this screening at Red River

Saturday, April 25, 2015

So apparently Vetflix is a thing. It’s an organization teaming up with Red River Theatres to bring you a free showing of Last Days in Vietnam tomorrow. More on that in a minute. But first we thought it would be fun to riff on the Vetflix thing and come up with a few Netflix-type spinoffs that could be created by changing one letter. Petflix, a library of videos of cats …

The Insiders: Watch Keith get bit by a dog in a very safe way

Friday, April 24, 2015

So one of us is going to be attacked by a dog today. And in the interest of full disclosure, it’s Keith. But don’t worry, Keith will be fine cause he’s going to have one those big puffy bite suits.

The Insiders: Make it the Fullest House by coming to see Dave Coulier at NHTI tonight

Friday, April 24, 2015

There was big news the other day for fans of super cheesy ’90s sitcoms (which is everyone): one of the most memorable of them all is getting a reboot. Full House will be back as Fuller House, which, even though it sounds more like a senior housing facility or a fraternity, had Twitter …

The Insiders: Want to know about the history of Concord Library? Go there tonight to find out

The Insiders: Check the date, then read this column and go to this gallery

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Good morning, readers! And what a morning it is. Why, you ask? Because today’s the day we all get to stroll downtown and finally lay eyes on the finished Main Street project in all its glory. Finally, no …

The Insiders: Didjeridoo - there, we said it. Now go listen to it

Saturday, March 28, 2015

We could write all kinds of words about today’s Tom Chapin appearance at the Capitol Center for the Arts, but how about just one? Didjeridoo. What’s that? We’re not entirely sure, but we think it’s a funky musical instrument that hopefully makes noises that are as fun to …

The Insiders: Spring is in full swing at the League of N.H. Craftsmen

Thursday, March 26, 2015

With the temperatures slowly rising and the snowbanks melting at a similar pace, it’s hard not to think spring. Like us, you probably have a mild case of spring fever. And that, coincidentally, just happens to be the …

The Insiders: Ain’t no ‘keg party like this Amoskeag Manufacturing party at the Pierce Manse

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

We feel we’ve been somewhat misle d by movies we’ve seen over the years. Isn’t everything in the movies supposed to be true? Like, shouldn’t flying cars be a thing by now? Also, anyone that watched John Travolta …

The Insiders: Make sure you come see how this country music stacks up at the Audi tonight

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

We’ve spent some time covering cup stacking at the Insider (thanks Mr. Jim!), and we’re big on newspaper stacking (it’s the only way to get our paper into those little boxes downtown. We found balling them up and …

The Insiders: It’s Sunday and that means Merrimack Music at the Audi

Sunday, March 22, 2015

So what do Dusty Gray, Ben Knight and Pat & The Hats all have in common? Yes, they’re all bands. Yes, they all frequently play gigs in and around Concord. And yes, from all we’ve heard, they’re pretty good at what they do. Kind of like us. But …

The Insiders: Go try a new instrument and listen to some tunes at the Concord Community Music School

Friday, March 20, 2015

You may not know this, but the Concord Community Music School is filled with some pretty talented musicians. And we can’t forget to mention the singers as well. But you don’t have to take our word for it cause for a good chunk of today, you can see …

The Insiders It’s The Wizard of Oz tonight at the Audi – in ballet form

Friday, March 20, 2015

We’re not sure about you, but if we found a yellow brick road, we’d follow it. Dorothy did and it worked out pretty well for her and that little dog, Toto. And don’t forget how it worked out …

The Insiders: Listen to Ben Winters read from his book about a fake Concord

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Have you ever wondered what you’d do if there was a date associated with the end of the world? We’d probably start by eating ridiculous amounts of desserts. Oh wait, we already do that. Then we’d likely start …

The Insiders: Put the shamrocks away for another year and check out a cool magic show

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Now that you’ve finally rinsed out that last bit of green hair dye and successfully removed those fake shamrock tattoos from your cheeks, it’s time to put another St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the rearview mirror and move …

The Insiders: Hear your favorite songs from TV and the movies by your favorite Rotarians.

Friday, March 13, 2015

Since the good people of Concord voted many moons ago to become a city and eliminate the annual town meeting, you don’t have to spend your Saturday listening to neighbors and fellow citizens discuss fire trucks and roads, …
