Top Weekend Events – March 4 – 6

So, here it is Wednesday again, the first weekend in March.  Given what this important month is should be of zero surprise that college basketball is exceptionally popular already.  March Madness is in the air and ravenous fans are clamoring for the big title.  It should be of note that the next Sunday, March 13th is Selection Sunday, followed by First Four/Play-in game(s) then the first and second round games which include:

North Carolina and Duke perpetually place very high in the tournament and this year should be no different.  They also hold the title for fiercest rivalry in the NCAA.  The strength of the rivalry is amplified by the proximity of the two schools, located only eight miles apart.  Be sure to watch this game!

Showing up another couple times on the top weekend list is Mr. Trey Anastasio. Man!  This guy is on fire!  Perhaps his popularity has something to do with the fact that Phish recently announced their new summer tour?

Also, Comedy Central star, Daniel Tosh, makes an impressive showing on the list.  His show, Tosh.0 is incredibly hilarious and draws in big crowds each week.  It should be of no surprise that his live show also brings in a bring crowd.

Selena Gomez holds down the top place on the list.  Is it due to her budding romance with teen pop star, Justin Beiber?  The world may never know.

Top Events for the Weekend in March:

1.)    Selena Gomez, Houston Rodeo, Texas – March 6th

2.)    North Carolina vs. Duke Basketball, Dean Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC – March 5th

3.)    Tennessee vs. Kentucky Basketball, Thompson – Boling Arena, Knoxville, TN  – March 6th

Phish on Tour Summer 2011

It’s official.  American Jam-Band, Phish will be on tour again in 2011.  After first announcing their reemergence two years ago, Phish has been going strong and will have another tour filled summer.

Trey Anastasio, Phish’s front man has been touring the country recently, selling out highly coveted shows.  Trey is credited with composing 152 of Phish’s orginal sounds, 140 of them as a solo credit.  He even placed 73 on the Rolling Stone list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003.  The man is talented.  The other 3 band members of Phish include Mike Gordon, Jon Fishman and Page McConnell and they have performed together for over 20 years.   Their popularity as a live band is due to the fact that each of their concerts is original in terms of the songs that they perform, order they appear in and the manner in which they are played.  A Phish groupie could never be bored with their performances. 

Phish has most often been compared to the Grateful Dead, the pioneer example of a jam band.  Other similarities are drawn frequently between the Allman Brothers and Widespread Panic.  The fans of the bands often tour for weeks at a time, traveling from show to show.

Phish is so popular, the even have their own Ben and Jerry’s flavor, Phish Food!

The 2011 tours starts off Memorial Day weekend at the bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, NY and the 18-date tour continues through June 19th at nTelos Wireless Pavilion in Portsmouth, VA. The Tour primarily focuses on the East Coast, near their home state of New Hampshire.

Top Weekend Events 2/26 – 28

Ok, so your Wednesday post is a Thursday morning post.  Oh well.  You’re just going to have to deal.

Country musicThis weekend’s top events are dominated but music.   All forms of music, from pop to country club.  As previously mentioned, Mr. Kid Rock fits into all these categories.  He’s such a chameleon.  His Born Free Tour is exceptionally popular.  Also reappearing on this list is former Phish front man, Trey Anastasio.  Representing  the country music world are Jason Aldean, who frequently appears with American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, and John Mellencamp.  Jason Aldean is cute, he’s talented, what’s not to love about him?  John Mellencamp also reappears on this list with his country rock style which has been exceptionally popular for decades.  It’s possible for him to perform old classics like “Pink Houses” and “Jack and Diane.”  Not to be forgotten is club music superstar Kesha.  The kids love her digitized vocal sound with out of control party antics. 

George Lopez also shows up on his list for his hysterically funny comedy show.  His “Lopez Tonight” tour  is selling out well, particularly with the Latino community.  The Fox Theatre in Atlanta is going to be busy this weekend!

For your sporting events to take notice of, the Clippers vs. Celtics game, Coyotes vs. Blackhawks game, the Loyola vs. Butler game, as well as the Bashas Supermarket 200 racing event.  For the Clippers vs. Celtics, it’s East vs. West is an awesome rematch from their December 27th game where the Clippers won by 2 points.  Rajon Rondo and Baron David are sure to be equally matched again.  The Blackhawks are still defending their 2010 Stanley Cup championship.    The Bashas is another NASCAR  Nationwide Series event held in Arizona and features race record Jeff Burton, 2000 (115.145 m.p.h.) and Qualifying record: Joey Logano, 2010 (134.048 m.p.h.) .

Romantic Valentine’s Day Performers

So, it’s Valentine’s Day.  Let’s celebrate the day with yet another list.  Who doesn’t love a good list?  My criteria for my lists are that they must be living AND performing now (hey, it’s my list, I can make whatever criteria I want).  I’m going to make two very distinctive lists.  The first list, being the top (in my opinion) romantic and heartwarming singers.  The other list, is for those of you celebrating “singles awareness day” and there for is hard, dark and heavy.  The lists are in no particular order.

 Top 10 romantic singers/performers  touring:

1.)    Celine Dion – Of course she’s on this list.  Every time you think about a large ship, you probably have “My Heart Will Go On” on repeat inside your head.  Luckily for everyone, she’s still on tour in Vegas.

2.)    Taylor Swift – So sure, sweet and good.  She’s every guys dream girl and every girl’s best friend.  She understands the female angst and sings all about it, but manages to make it sound sweet.

3.)    Bryan Adams – How many great love songs did this guy do?  His two most popular were probably “Have you Ever Really Loved a Woman” and “(Everything I do) I do it for you”.

4.)    Barry Manilow – Mr. Romantic songs himself!   With songs like “Mandy”, “Can’t Smile Without You”, and “Could it Be Magic?” he’s an obvious choice for this list.

5.)    Rod Stewart – With his career in its fifth decade, Mr. Stewart has been exceptionally popular with the ladies ever since.  Hehas sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the bestselling artists of all time.  He’s touring with another romantic artist, Ms. Stevie Nicks.

6.)    Enrique Iglesias- Yum.  Regardless of the fact that he makes good music or not, he is exceptionally attractive.  His latest album with his Latin styling is sure to woo the ladies once again.

7.)    Justin Bieber – Ah, the Bieb.  That hair!  That smile!  The ‘tweeners  just love him, and the rest of the world does too for that matter.

8.)    Harry Connick, Jr.  – He acts, he sings, he composes.  He has enough personality to fill an entire auditorium.  He makes the ladies swoon.  Gentlemen, you should take note of this man.

9.)    Rascal Flatts – Their country songs nearly all explode with love and affection for their family and friends.  You can’t listen to any of their songs and not have warm fuzzies.  They also Thave raised and donated millions of dollars to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.  How can you not love that?

10.) Rush – They’re just REALLY good.  I can’t think of one guy I know that doesn’t have a “man crush” on them.



Top 10 least romantic singers/performers touring:

1.)    Apocalyptica– Yea, heavy, rock grunge music doesn’t exactly convey that loving feeling.

2.)    Lil’ Wayne – Maybe it’s just me, but I find all his tattoos to be especially offputting.  Or maybe it’s the grill….

3.)    Kid Rock – Granted, he might be slowly turning the corner from his former darker, drug and booze filled rap days, but he’s still not universally appealing on a first date.

4.)    Lewis Black – I’m surprised that man hasn’t had a heart attack yet!  He is a ball of rage!  Avoid, avoid, avoid when you want a nice romantic evening.

5.)    Social Distortion – Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Social D, but punk and romance don’t go together unless you’re Avril Lavigne.

6.)    K$sha – Someone give that girl a bath!   Her club/techno music is not good for snuggling.

7.)    Widespread Panic –  Jam Band.  You’d sooner have an urge for some munchies before looking for love at one of WP’s shows.

8.)    Dispatch – Hard Rock =/= Romance.  Sorry, it’s true.

9.)    Barney Live In Concert - Birthday Bash! – Giant Purple Dinosaur with a Baby Voice.  Need I say more?

10.) Trey Anastasio from Phish. – Pleas see description for WP.

What are some of your favorite romantic or polar opposite of romantic musicians/peformers??
