October 2013 Events Image

It's a pretty great time of the year for sports, concerts, and theater, given that each category has a plethora of events to choose from. Big names like Elton John and Kanye West will launch U.S. tours this month, while the NFL season continues on strong (as if there was ever any doubt). On top of that, NBA has its pre-season while MLB heads into its postseason, and several shows — including one about legendary musician Janis Joplin — open on Broadway.

Concerts

Pink: She opens her latest tour, "The Truth About Love," Oct. 10 in Oakland, CA, which she follows up with several California performances before sweeping through the rest of the U.S.

Top 5 Flight of the Conchords songs

I discovered Flight of the Conchords a few years ago when a song of theirs randomly came on one of my Pandora stations. Since then, I sing (no pun intended) their praises to everyone I know. What I discovered is that for the most part, either you know who the Flight of the Conchords are and you're a big fan, or you don't know who they are.

For those of you who don't know who they are, the Flight of the Conchords are a comedy and music duo from New Zealand comprised of Jemaine Clement (who you may recognize from movies like Dinner for Schmucks and Men in Black 3) and Bret McKenzie (who you may not recognize, but he did win an Academy Award for the song "Man or Muppet" from The Muppet Movie). The two have toured around the world and released multiple award-winning comedy albums, but their fame really grew thanks to their HBO show that ran from 2007-2009.

They will soon be embarking on another tour as part of the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, co-headlining the show with comedian Dave Chappelle. The tour will hit cities across the country including Austin, TX; Pittsburgh, PA; and Irvine, CA.

In honor of their upcoming tour (which you know I will be going to), I decided to put together my top five Flight of the Conchords songs. (Sorry for a few of these videos having some advertisements and a couple bad words sprinkled in there)

#1 - Hurt Feelings

We already know about staples on Broadway (Wicked, The Book of Mormon, The Lion King), but looking ahead to the late summer/fall theater season, there are a few new shows to get excited about. While I touched on a few back in April, including Romeo and Juliet (opening August 24) and Waiting for Godot/No Man's Land (opening November 24), these new ones involve Shakespeare, music, and super-awkward first dates.

Let It Be

Opens: July 24, 2013

About: The Beatles! And who doesn't love The Beatles? This musical features some of their amazing music, all while telling the story of their rise to fame. It will also include "state-of-the-art projection technology and 3D sound" (whatever that means, but it sounds fun!). The original production was created to celebrate the band's 50th anniversary, but the West End production grew so successful that it's heading to the states.
