The Insiders: Do a little signing and catch a flick at the library

Saturday, April 18, 2015

If there’s one thing that just doesn’t translate well in our writing, it’s got to be our singing ability. When it comes to belting out the latest and greatest tunes, we’re somewhere on the scale between bad and average. Our true bread and butter really lies in movie tunes. And if you can say the same, then you might want to carve out a little time to make your way …

The Insiders: Don’t let the outdoors hit you on the way out this afternoon. But seriously, get outdoors today

Saturday, April 18, 2015

They always say, if you give a man a fish, you’ll feed him for a day; but teach a man to fish and he’ll come home with a million bug bites and a lobster-red sunburn and maybe a fish or two, if he’s lucky. Isn’t that how it goes? Either way, we’re hungry. …

The Insiders: It’s not the weekend yet, but you can still avoid work by attending an enlightening book discussion

Thursday, April 16, 2015

We know how you feel on Thursday. The weekend is so close, and with it the promise of carting your kids around and having to entertain them all afternoon and finally doing the laundry and dishes and yard work and . . . wait, why were we so anxious for the weekend to …

The Insiders: Check out all the great stuff Concord students have created

Thursday, March 5, 2015

We really like kids art. It reminds us a lot of our work, even though it comes from people who actually have a chance at being an artist. Unfortunately, none of our originals will be on display tonight, …

The Insiders: Learn all about the music of Wales, the country not the marine mammal

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

So we want to play a little word association game. We’ll say the word and you shout out what comes to mind first. Wales. Now since we obviously can’t hear you, we’re going to fill in the blanks. …

The Insiders: Listen to this music so you don’t have to listen to people tell you what to do

Saturday, February 28, 2015

Sunday is the day for pretending you can’t hear your loved ones when they try to give you chores to do. And a great way to not hear them is to put music in your ears so there’s no room for any other yapping. Well, there’s plenty of …

The Insiders: Looks like winter’s naming rights are still up for grabs; turns out Frostiana is this concert at St. Paul’s School

Thursday, February 26, 2015

Given the Weather Channel’s new penchant for naming winter storms in order to strike greater levels of fear into you (coming up next, a live update on Winter Storm Death Claw!), we first thought Frostiana was just a …

The Insiders: We can’t invite you to our dance party, but Let’s Dance certainly can

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

We can’t tell you how many times our brainstorming sessions for this column have devolved into dance parties. What can we say, we’re slaves to the rhythm. One lesson we’ve learned from the experience, though: It’s extremely difficult …

The Insiders: The grass is bluer with this concert at the Audi tonight

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

There isn’t any grass visible anywhere in these parts right now (it’s still uncertain whether any will become visible before the end of 2015), so if we told you the grass was actually blue under there, it’s possible …

The Insiders: Walk the red carpet like Benedict Cumberbatch, if that’s even a real guy, at Red River tonight

Saturday, February 21, 2015

You’re probably not named Benedict Cumberbatch. Frankly, we’re still not convinced anyone really is. But even if the moniker is just some elaborate joke, the guy who goes by it will be getting the red carpet treatment tonight when the 87th Academy Awards are held. Guess what, though? …

The Insiders: You can see this movie at NHTI tonight and still make your mortgage payment this month

Thursday, February 19, 2015

Remember when going to the movies was a thing? Well, it still is a thing, we guess, it can just be a really expensive thing. Between the tickets and the bathtub-sized bucket of popcorn and the jug of …

The Insiders: Learn all about slimy silly putty – and other engineering stuff

Thursday, February 19, 2015

Do you ever wonder what really goes into building a school? Are you interested in gadgets and gears? And what about slimy Silly Putty? Okay, we just threw that last one in there as a test to make …

The Insiders: Read our poem to winter then hear some real ones at Gibson’s tonight

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

We’ve written a poem about winter that we’d like to share with you. It’s called Son of a @#&*, when the @!#%& can we catch a god*@#$ break around here ? It’s a haiku, and it goes like this: [editor’s note: entire text redacted due to FCC concerns]. …

The Insiders: It’s a good day to watch some basketball, so why not head over to Bishop Brady

Saturday, February 14, 2015

We’ve always liked using the word extravaganza, but it’s just hard to make it work most of the time. Lucky for all of you, today is not one of those times. We can say that the second annual Frank Monahan Foundation Basketball Showcase at Bishop Brady is officially …

The Insiders: Until they officially move Mardi Gras to Concord, enjoy a taste of the festival with tonight’s Cap Center show

Friday, February 13, 2015

Concord doesn’t have any famous streets named after booze, which is probably the only reason Mardi Gras isn’t held here every year instead of New Orleans. But guess what? You can still get a taste of the Mardi Gras scene in our fair city tonight at 8 at …
