Want to Laugh a Lot and Maybe Meet Women in GR? Go See Avenue Q at GR Civic Theatre

I did something different last night. Something I didn't think I would ever do, but so many people have told me about how fun it is, and I caved.

I went and saw a musical. Avenue Q, at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre.

I know, I know. But this musical is really funny, and adult. Not like most musicals, where the singing just seems out of place and silly. These songs are silly on purpose, and make fun of a lot of things, which I like.

Lzzy Hale Almost Performed in Grand Rapids with Lindsey Stirling on Monday Night [Video]

On Monday, June 8th, Lindsey Stirling appeared at the DeVos Performance Hall here in Grand Rapids, for her sold out show! If you don't know who she is, she's the 'Dub Step Violinist'. She's a classically trained violinist who writes her music with ambient and dub step style sound to it.

Why would care? One, it's pretty cool; two, it's impressive that she can play a violin and dance at the same time; and three, she recorded a song on her new album with Lzzy Hale from Halestorm! It's called 'Shatter Me', and is the title track to the new album, too.
