Young the Giant w/ Fitz and the Tantrums

Alternative/Indie rock band Young the Giant headlined at Marymoor outdoor amphitheater over the weekend along with Fitz & The Tantrums with support from Coin. The coheadlining summer tour was inspired by the meaning of Young the Giant’s hit ‘Superposition’.

The California quintet started off by performing many of their well-known songs from the album ‘Mirror Master’ released last fall – below you can listen to ‘Oblivion’ and ‘Master Mirror’.  We are in love with every song on the track – which are both smart and catchy.

It was their singles ‘Cough Syrup’ and ‘My Body’ both released in 2011 that made Young the Giant close to a household name.  But it’s their current album and stage performance by Sameer Gadhia that will keep them rising. The crowd loved the vocals and electricity radiating from the lead singer.

The Beth’s at Chop Suey

The Beth's

New Zealand Indie rock band The Beths stopped by Seattle’s retro Chop Suey nightclub last night as part of their 2019 North American summer tour in support of their album ‘Future Me Hates Me’. The album has been noted as one of most impressive indie-rock albums of the year. Which likely attributes to their sold-out shows. Last night the Seattle venue was packed from wall to wall, and from front to back with hot, sweaty fans anticipating the band’s entrance.

The pop-punk band members, including lead singer and guitarist Elizabeth Stokes, boyfriend and guitarist Jonathan Pearce and bassist Ben Sinclair met in college while studying jazz. They describe their music as ‘guitar music’ and it’s very apparent in the unique sounds and performances. Guitar music is just what they like. Stokes writes most when she’s feeling emotional – either super stoked or super upset. Many of the lyrics on their latest album reflect Stokes feelings about romance and all the self-doubts and over-thinking associated with it.

This New Zealand band is making headlines worldwide. To catch a live performance visit http://www.eventsfy.com

MY FAIR LADY

My fair lady

My Fair Lady is an entertaining musical based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. The story is about a flower girl named Eliza Doolittle who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins so that she may pass as a lady. The musical opened on Broadway in 1956 and in 1957 won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

This 1956 production was a notable critical and popular success which set a record for the longest run of any show on Broadway up to that time. My Fair Lady has been called “the perfect musical”.

The musical was followed by a hit production in London, a popular film version, and many revivals. It’s a biting satire that makes both the most egoistic snob and the “lowliest” street person treat with gentle humour and respect. The musical does include one shot of the tipsy bridegroom on the way to his wedding, and one main character smokes a cigar depicting scenes of moderate drinking on social occasions.

Do not miss out on the ‘Perfect Musical’ and book tickets to My Fair Lady at The Main Street Theatre in downtown Columbiana, Ohio from June 7th to the 16th, 2019.
