Things We Love: Alive staff picks

From the March 6, 2014 edition


“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.”


Meg Myers' Make a Shadow EP

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


“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.  


Drive-By Truckers’ English Oceans

America’s most reliably awesome band delivers yet again.


Otis Redding

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


My Mom!

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


Dark Sky

A gorgeous weather app — albeit a slightly expensive one.
