In Concert, The Foo Fighters Do It Again

The legends of rock do it again.


The Foo Fighters have a new album out, “ Concrete and Gold,” and they have been touring all over the world to promote the new album as well as playing all their timeless classics. After a brief hiatus, the band was ready to get back on the road and do what they do best, play live music. I got a chance to see to see the Foo Fighters in Birmingham, Alabama in their southeast leg of the tour.

This was the first show after their string of cancelled shows after a family emergency that still has not been revealed. The Foo Fighters rarely cancel shows, even when Dave broke his leg, so this must have been a very significant thing to have happened for them to cancel. Needless to say, they were stoked to return to playing music and they had an extra jump in their step in Birmingham.

They opened the show with their new rocking song “Run” which immediately got the crowd engaged and had everyone rocking. They busted into a few older songs to ignite the longtime Foo Fighters fans. They also extended songs into jam sessions which were as fun for the crowd as it probably was for the band. They truly looked excited to be back.

Later in the show, Dave Grohl noticed a guy with a sign in the very front, who he pulled on stage to play guitar on “Big Me.” Dave explained how he was reluctant to pull the fan up because of previous incidents but the fan nailed the song and knew what he was doing.

The band introductions were per usual with each of them showcasing their skills on a certain song of their pick which the band would eventually try to join in on if they knew it. The last song before the encore was “Best of You” and that song had everyone singing and humming the melody of the song during the slower breakdown. It was quite the experience to be in the crowd and singing with everyone.

An encore was expected, but not a 3-song encore. It turns out the lead singing of the old punk band Squirrel Bait was in attendance, who Dave Grohl happened to be a huge fan of. Grohl brought him out there to perform and intimate cover of the Squirrel Bait song “Sun God.” They ended the encore with the timeless “Everlong.” That last song had everyone singing along and dancing around to end the night. It was a great time. The Foo Fighters played for about 3 hours with a 25-song set list full of variety. Once again, another great Foo Fighters concert in the books.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
