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: 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, …

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 …
