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. Keith, along with Nazzy and Mark Hayward from the Union Leader will participate in the bite suit demonstration as part of Bark in …

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: There’s poetry in the State House tonight instead of whatever other kind of talking is usually there

Thursday, March 12, 2015

We’ve highlighted several times in this space that we’re not exactly accomplished poets. Other things we’re not: space aliens, good at math, ever hungry (we eat a lot) or high school students. If you want to see some …

The Insiders: Come to the Music School for the great music today, stay in case Bach shows up

Thursday, March 12, 2015

If you could have lunch with one famous composer whose name rhymed with the New England pronunciation of bark, who would it be? We hope you said Bach, because today is the next installment in the Bach’s Lunch …

The Insiders: Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young: not good at legal advice, good at being in the name of this show

Saturday, March 7, 2015

Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young is not a Concord law firm (we’re pretty sure, at least. We didn’t have the three days it would take to scan all the city’s legal office listings). And, at least today, it’s not going to be the celebrated musical group either. Temple …

The Insiders: Sit inside this evening, where the ice is only for people to play hockey on

Thursday, March 5, 2015

We’ve all had front row seats to some ice for about three months now, which is sort of like having season tickets to an emotional beatdown, but not all such situations are created equal. For instance, if we …

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 …
