The Avett Brothers Return to Fort Wayne

The Avett Brothers were for a long time a band I heard about but never actually heard. This is weird for two reasons: (1) they'd been recommended to me by someone whose musical taste I trust absolutely, and (2) they're exactly the kind of band I like, branching not far from Dave Matthews Band and Ryan Adams on the musical tree. That finally changed Valentine's Day 2013, when I saw them perform at the Embassy Theatre here in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Man, the energy these guys give off on stage is raw and vital and real, and I was a fan from the very first song.

It seems that so many of my favorite movies and musicals just so happen to be from the 70s and 80s. Blame it on my love of anything nostalgic, or the fact that the 70s and 80s were when my mom was growing up and never hesitated to show me her favorite flicks as I grew up myself. One of my favorites is Annie, the story of the little red-headed orphan who made everyone fall in love with her. You can fall in love with her too when Annie - The Musical comes to the Embassy Theatre on Friday, April 8!

Peppa Pig: A fun time in Fort Wayne with the Kids

If there's a preschooler in your life, then you are most likely familiar with Peppa Pig -- "a preschooler's dream come true," as she's been called.

Peppa is a mischievous (or "cheeky," as they'd say in Britain, where she originated) little pig who has good, clean, gentle fun with her animal friends on her TV show, which airs daily on Nick Jr. Cute animated animals, speaking in British accents? What's not to love about that!
