The Twilight Hours at the Cedar

Posted Tuesday, July 25th, 2017 10:45 pm GMT -5 in Concerts,Family,Music at 10:45 PM

Here’s one from back in March (the 25th, to be exact), when we headed over to the Cedar Cultural Center to see The Twilight Hours. We’ve been big fans of Matt Wilson and John Munson in all of their various projects and try to catch them when we can. They will be playing down the block at Music in Mears this Thursday, which reminded me I never posted pictures from the Cedar show (pics after the jump).

The Counterfactuals and Fathom Lane opened the show, but we were really there to hear songs off The Twilight Hours new album, Black Beauty. I think they played all but two of the new songs, which was nice to experience for the first time. Not much else to say, other than to highly recommend you make your way down to Mears Park this week for a free sample of this great band.

Bruno Mars at T-Mobile Arena

Posted Monday, July 24th, 2017 07:29 pm GMT -5 in Concerts,Friends,Music,Travel at 7:29 PM

It seems like forever ago already, but one of the highlights of our Vegas trip last month was a private concert by Bruno Mars at the new T-Mobile Arena that the Golden Knights will call home. The Cisco Live! conference had around 28,000 attendees and most of them tried to squeeze into the arena for the roughly 80 minute set (with no opener and no encore).

We had passes to get in early and were herded to the upper level concourse for free food and drinks. Before the full doors opened, we worked our way down to the arena floor and I got a spot on the end of the front barrier. Bruno and his crew spent more time in the middle of the stage, but it was still a great spot to watch them up close. Conference organizers handed out free hats with flashing lights, so the place was really more electric than it would normally be with a bunch of nerds.

Kid two was more than a little salty that 1) I got to see him first and 2) that I was that close (when Bruno came to my side of the stage, he was literally about four feet away). Ended up taking way more video than usual, just so she could experience it too. No merch for sale and I didn’t get a set list, but it was pretty much what you’d expect. My favorites were the big hits: That’s What I Like, 24K Magic, Just the Way You Are and (of course) Uptown Funk.

Amazing performer, great show (more pics after the jump).
