The Insiders: This writing and yoga workshop is way better than your Sunday to-do list

Sunday, May 31, 2015

Things you are probably planning on doing today: mowing the lawn, getting the groceries, dropping the kids off, studying molecular physics, picking the kids up. More relaxing things you could be doing today instead: spending the afternoon at a writing and yoga workshop at At Om Yoga. We trust you’ll make the right choice. Just to sway you a little more, here are the deets on the workshop. It’s called …

The Insiders: Dances like the ones you’ll see tonight from the Concord Dance Academy are numbered. Like, literally.

Thursday, May 28, 2015

We feel confident at this stage of our lives saying we’ve nailed the skills necessary for paint-by-numbers, so we’re pretty much professional artists now. Our dancing skills aren’t quite on par, though – which means someone should really get on the inventing of a dance-by-numbers program. You can ruminate on that tonight as …

The Insiders: Bird knowledge will be dropped at the 5 Rivers annual gathering tonight

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Despite the urging from celebrated scholarly philosopher L.L. Cool J not to call it a comeback, we’re afraid that’s just what we’re going to do. How else to explain the triumphant return of the bald eagle to the Granite State? The best part is, we’re not going to explain it at all – we don’t really know any bird stuff. But we can …

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 …

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. …
