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, but there will be more than enough to look at when the Concord School District Art Show hosts its opening reception at …

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. Shamu, ocean, large stuffed animals and Willy – you know the one from that kid’s …

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 music in town today, just looking for ear holes to climb into and chores to …

The Insiders: Today is one of those days that’s actually a day

Saturday, December 6, 2014

Thanks to the internet, it seems like every day is some kind of day now. For instance, according to holidayinsights.com, today is both Letter Writing Day and National Cotton Candy Day, a pair of “holidays” we recommend celebrating separately in order to prevent a sticky correspondence epidemic. But …

The Insiders: It’s time to do some bargain shopping at the annual ski and skate sale

Saturday, December 6, 2014

We’re big on getting great deals. Like free cookies, cheap day-old doughnuts and inexpensive winter gear. And while we can’t promise the first two things will happen today, the last one sure can. From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Green Street Community Center will be open for …

The Insiders: Stay up past your bedtime and check out Midnight Merriment

Thursday, December 4, 2014

We all have different ways to kick off the holiday season. Many put up the family Christmas tree, others decorate the front yard with inflatable snowmen and reindeer, while some bake cookies that look like their favorite Insider staff member. But Intown Concord has something else in mind, …

The Insiders: Hear the words written by a writer tonight at Red River

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

As far as we can tell, Donald Hall really likes words. At least we hope that’s the case because if not, he’s been fooling people for a really long time with his lifetime of putting them together in carefully crafted ways for others to enjoy. Kind of like …

The Insiders: Your goods may be canned, but your laughter won’t be at Concord High tonight

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

We prefer our donated foods canned and our laughter anything but, which is the combination you’ll find tonight at 7 at Concord High School. Concord High’s Save Our Cold Kids Club – delightfully acronymed SOCK – is bringing professional comedian Jim Colliton to the stage along with several …

The Insiders: The tenor of your evening will change for the better at the Cap Center tonight

Saturday, November 29, 2014

You may have noticed from listening to your car radio only about eight songs exist. But you may have also noticed that it’s officially Christmas music time. That used to become official the minute Thanksgiving was over, but lately it seems like anytime after Halloween is becoming fair …

The Insiders: Let’s light the old Christmas tree – the city tree that is.

Thursday, November 27, 2014

Now if you’re reading this, we’d like to first thank you for tuning into our first post-Thanksgiving column of 2014 and in turn, it’s safe to assume that third turkey sandwich didn’t put you in a food coma that will keep you out of commission through the weekend. …

The Insiders: Burn your Turkey Day calories before you consume them with a four-mile crab walk (or run, if it’s what you’re comfortable with)

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

We can probably take a pretty good stab at what your afternoon is going to look like today. It will most likely include the four Fs: football, feasting, fighting with family and food coma. There is the possibility to add a fifth F, if you’d like – four …

The Insiders: The food coma can wait; stop by the “Fez”tival of Trees first

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

One of our favorite Thanksgiving week traditions that doesn’t involve stuffing our faces with delicious grub or entering into an extended food coma is the annual “Fez”tival of Trees at the Bektash Shrine Center at 189 Pembroke Road (although there are refreshments available, so the food coma could …

The Insiders: Get your moustache ready for race day this morning

Saturday, November 22, 2014

Doctors recommend getting blah blah minutes of exercise a day, and though some respected medical outlets have yet to add this additional nugget of information, we’re pretty sure we’ve read that it counts double if you exercise while wearing a mustache headband. That’s an attainable goal this morning, …

The Insiders: The Tall Granite Big Band is debuting this weekend – and it’s for a good cause

Thursday, November 20, 2014

If 17 musicians get together and no one is there to hear them play, do they make a sound? We’d assume so, but how could we really ever know – especially if each one was sworn to secrecy? Good thing all of you can prevent us from having …

The Insiders: We’re tooting our own horn – but it’s for a fantastic cause

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

We’re not usually ones to toot our own horn, which is good because neither of us has a ton of musical ability and it would probably sound like some sort of sick animal. But we can’t help but point you to this week’s Insider – not because of …
