THE 1975 TOUR | Review

IMG_4199

Hey music fans!!  I’m back with another tour review and I’m excited about this one!

My niece introduced me to The 1975 a while back and I really enjoyed listening to them.  For Christmas this past year, her mom and I surprised her with tickets to see them live for the first time.  She was stoked (and so was I!), but had to wait until May 11 for the show. Talk about torture!

Anyway, last night was the show and it was held at Bayfront Park Amphitheater in Downtown Miami.  I’d never been to the venue, but I’d definitely go there again!

If you’re not familiar with The 1975, here’s a bit of info about them:

Hailing from Manchester, U.K., The 1975 is an alternative rock band clearly influenced by a wide range of musical styles.  The band consists of Matt Healy (lead singer and guitarist), George Daniel (drums, backing vocals), Adam Hann (guitar, keyboards, backing vocals) and Ross MacDonald (bass, keyboard, backing vocals).  After releasing three EP’s over the course of their musical career, the band released their self-titled debut album, The 1975, in 2013 and their latest album, I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware, in 2016.

The show started at about 8 pm with Wolf Alice and The Japanese House as opening acts.  The 1975 came out and played non-stop until the very end.  Unfortunately, their drummer (George) was unable to play due to a broken shoulder, but the drummer from one of their opening acts saved the day and did a great job!  The sound at the venue was great, the crowd was energetic and the band seemed to play off of that.  One couple even got engaged during fallingforyou, which was cute.  Even the stage setup was great.  They had huge screens that lit up behind them to cover the entire stage, with their signature rectangles floating above them.  To sum it up, the show was great and I would definitely see them live again.

#PonleAcento | Adrián González debuts MLB Jersey with proper last name spelling

After 16 years in the big leagues Gold Glove Dodger’s first basemen Adrián González stepped up to the plate with his last name properly spelled for the first time during Monday’s (5/9/16) home game at Dodger Stadium. González has added an accent mark to the “a” in his last name and in an effort to inspire other Latinos within the MLB to do the same González challenged teammate Kiké Hernández prior to the game. Hernández has also joined González and was debuting a new jersey inspired by #PonleAcento.

González may have taken one of the first steps to create this movement but now he invites other Latino MLB players to join the #PonleAcento movement. Let us know if you can share this on your blog and or social media!

Mike ‘The Movie Guy’ Movie Review: Bite

Movie fans!! Horror fans! I check it out…it’s called…


Before I talk BITE – here’s a little info in the movie first…BITE is NOW open in select U.S. Theaters, and all major VOD and On Demand platforms – so after watching the trailer or reading my review – – you can find and watch it there. 😉

NOW…what did I think of the slimy, horror flick they call BITE?!

👉 I thought it was alright. I thought the trailer was freakier though.

Bite

👍 I thought it had a cool story I could relate to. 😳 I actually frequent Costa Rica…soooo after watching this…I told the wifey, “Well. I’m not swimming in any water there NO MO!!” 😂

👍 I liked the special effects in the movie. I bet it was real fun making this flick…all those eggs…all that slim. 😳

Bite

👎 For me…it had a slow start. It felt like forever to get really going…but when it finally does. OH Crap! There’s this one “Stomp the Yard” part….DAMNN! The last 15-20 minutes. 👌

Overall all…I thought it was a good morning. Glad it had dope payoff. Question is…will there be a Part 2?! 😳

I give BITE…3 out of 5 popcorns!
