The Insiders: Celebrate Flashback Friday with Beethoven at the Music School

Thursday, January 29, 2015

Just like those Folgers coffee commercials (remember when those were a thing??!!), we’ve secretly replaced the “B” in #FBF (flashback Friday) with Beethoven this evening. That’s about as flashbacky as you can get! Pianist Gregg Pauley is presenting the fifth of nine concerts in his Beethoven Project tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Concord Community Music School at 23 Wall St. This evening’s performance will highlight the key of three …

The Insiders: Dance like nobody’s watching, even though other people at Let’s Dance will be

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Our knowledge of the dancing world is admittedly limited, and not just because we have two left feet (between the two of us, we mean). We hear things like Merengue and Paso Doble and think one of them is a pie and the other is movie villain. Turns out they’re actually dance styles! And you can learn about them at today’s workshop at …

The Insiders: Come for the science and stay for the, um, science (and the fun!) with The Amazing Nano Brothers

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Nothing gets a party started quite like nanoscale science and technology, amirite? We’re talking molecules and probe microscopy and probably some other kinds of scopys – you know, the kind of stuff that just screams FUN! And you think we’re being sarcastic – we’re actually just describing this afternoon’s show by the Amazing Nano Brothers at 1 at the Capitol Center for the …

The Insiders: Help redesign Main Street tonight – or at least give some ideas.

Thursday, January 8, 2015

We all like to have our opinions heard. Like what sounds good for dinner, what color will look best on the living room walls and how many days is too many to spend with extended family on vacation. Our thoughts are tacos, toasted marshmallow and four – unless …

The Insiders: Go to Everett Arena for public skate and stay for the day

Friday, January 2, 2015

Well it’s officially both January and 2015 and has been for a few days, but what you may not have realized: it’s also winter and has been for some time now. It may not seem like that considering the lack of snow and the fact that you’re still …

The Insiders: Get moving to see these movies at Red River

Thursday, January 1, 2015

Well, 2015 is already more than 24 hours old, and so far it has pretty closely resembled a baby of the same age – there’s been a lot of burping, some scheduled feedings and generally spotty sleep. Thankfully it’s Friday, which means you have the upcoming weekend to …

The Insiders: Goodbye 2014, hello 2015

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

Well, after officially closing the books on 2014 last night with what we can only assume was one raucous evening of confetti, loud counting and a resolution that you may or may not remember, it’s time to embrace all that 2015 has to offer. It’s hard to believe …

The Insiders: You can’t spell 2015 without 2-5-0. Well, if you spelled numbers, anyway

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

Concord is inching closer to its 250th birthday, and while we’re out trying to find a cake big enough to fit all those candles (and an industrial strength fan to blow them all out), you can ring in …

The Insiders: Enjoy a night at the theater in London, in Concord (trust us, it’s a real thing)

Saturday, December 27, 2014

Concord is just like London in a lot of ways, don’t you think? They’re both in an England (ours is just newer, apparently), they both have famous clocks (we named our Eagle Square version Comparatively Diminutive Ben) and both have bridges that are falling down (see you in …

The Insiders: Here’s how not to be a huge jerk while returning all your Christmas gifts

Thursday, December 25, 2014

Happy National Return Stuff Day! That’s not a real recognized holiday – yet – but anyone who has ever worked in retail will tell you it might as well be. Today is the day that 50 percent of all Christmas shopping gets done all over again when people …

The Insiders: Throw on those Santa jammies and a movie cause it’s Christmas Eve

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

So this is it. One final day before Santa pushes that big round belly down your chimney and the clock is ticking. Tick-tock, tick-tock. If you’re like us, there’s lots to do. You’ve got to wrap those last-minute presents that are still on your to-do list to buy. …

The Insiders: Enjoy tons of great holiday music today, no helmet required

Saturday, December 20, 2014

The way we see it, there’s two ways you can tackle today: put on full football pads and a helmet and brave the shopping centers, or put on your listening pants and hear some relaxing holiday music (If you are doing some shopping, we could use some new …

The Insiders: Cross the Nutcracker off your holiday to-do list

Thursday, December 18, 2014

There are just certain things you must do during the holiday season. Making a gingerbread house and then eating the entire thing in one sitting is No. 1 on our list. Dressing up like an elf and doing a one-man caroling routine around the neighborhood is another, as …

The Insiders: Music and art in one place? You got to check this out

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

If you haven’t noticed, we’re pretty big fans of music and art. Like screaming as the tour bus passes by kind of fans. But we’re sad to report that we’re not all that good at either one of them, which is why when we heard that the Concord …
