Ramblings on 90s Bands, TD Echo Beach, and Modern Concert Goers
Last night I went to the third and final concert of the Edgefest ‘14 Summer Concert Series, which was held at TD Echo Beach at Ontario Place. I don’t go to concerts as often as I used to, but I was really enticed by the line-up, which happened to be made up of alt-rock bands that were popular in the 1990s (and that I listened to as a teenager). While the show was undoubtedly entertaining, I left with issues about both the venue and my fellow concert goers.
WWE Toronto House Show Ramblings
I’ve been a WWE fan since 1991, though I admit to not being constantly into it as I used to. I no longer religiously watch Raw on Mondays, though I still try to keep current with what’s going (mostly through social media).
On a whim I decided to go to yesterday’s WWE house show at Ricoh Coliseum at Exhibition Place. It was my first WWE live event since about 2011 and I was looking forward to seeing some live wrestling action.
My Thoughts on American Idiot: The Musical
Note: This post includes some specific plot details about the musical.
Tonight I went to the Royal Alexandra Theatre here in Toronto to see the stage musical adaptation of Green Day’s 2004 rock opera American Idiot.
Due to the high ticket prices, I don’t often go to theatrical productions, but I’ve been wanting to see this musical since it first debuted on Broadway in 2008.
After missing the first time the show played in Toronto in 2011, I was happy to hear that it was returning this year (and even happier that I managed to get a ticket discount). Even though I had to sit in the cramped seating of the Royal Alex’s (very steep) upper balcony, I still found the show to be an enjoyable experience (especially since I had a decent view from the second row of the balcony).
