Things We Love: Alive staff picks

By
From the March 6, 2014 edition

Justin:

“The LEGO Movie”

Much smarter and funnier than a movie about a child’s toy had any right to be. Plus, there are worse songs to get stuck in your head than “Everything is Awesome.”

Brad:

Meg Myers' Make a Shadow EP

This fiery female singer-songwriter evokes the best ’90s angst (think Fiona Apple). I'm officially obsessed.

Alyse:

“The Phantom of the Opera

Andrew Lloyd Webber's best musical is in town! I should probably get tickets...

Lauren K.:

Hal and Al’s Tasty Tuesday

A beer tasting and a full brunch menu! It’s a good way to forget it’s only Tuesday.  

Andy:

Drive-By Truckers’ English Oceans

America’s most reliably awesome band delivers yet again.

Jesse:

Otis Redding

There is only one way to do proper romance, and Otis is it. You’re welcome.

Abernathy:

My Mom!

It’s her birthday on March 7. She’s like, 100.

Meghan:

Dark Sky

A gorgeous weather app — albeit a slightly expensive one.
