The Neighbourhood At College Street music hall!

The line went around the building & wrapped 5 times but the line was worth it!

The Neighbourhood came to College Street Music Hall a few years ago and I went and had a blast! When they came back I had to go! 'The Neighbourhood' are considered indie pop/ alternative with hip-hop influences, some of my favorite kinds of music. The concert was one of those concerts in which you could have an amazing time no matter where you were standing! The energy was fun and very enjoyable. Even the songs I wasn't familiar with made me want to dance and just have a good time with some friends!

The Venue


The venue itself was, to be frank, unorganized and obnoxious. In all honesty what venue is extremely organized? Not too many that I can recall. This took the cake though, the line wraps around the building into a blacktop space where then there are four or five different lines. When the line begins to move everyone runs to shift into the line that's moving, therefore causing chaos.

I will say beyond that, the experience during the show was very pleasurable. The thing most breathtaking to me was the structure of viewing, which was outstanding! For general admission, there is the pit and then three levels of railings that are placed a bit higher than what's in front of them, giving everyone a good chance for great views! Personally, I stood on the second-row railing and we still had a great view! My friend and I didn't once have to stand on our tip-toes to see the performer. The sound overall was great and the people working the venue were great during the concert. The only thing I found unpleasant was after the show ended I felt like I was being pushed out of the door only to be bombarded with people promoting next weeks concert, which to me was overwhelming

Opening Acts

Typically an opening act is meant to get the crowd energized for the headliner, but this one... it was a bust. 'The Neighbourhood' are an indie pop/alternative band so you'd expect something within that genre, but that isn't what happened. The first opener was a country singer-songwriter which was slow and really seemed to do the opposite of getting me energized for the show. The second opener had me more confused than I have ever been. The second act had little to no lyrics and possibly caused my headache. If I had to pinpoint what the hell was actually happening I'd describe it as a mix of heavy metal and EDM, both things I'm not super keen on. In all, the openers had me feeling anxious to hear the band play and for them to just get off of the stage.

The neighbourhood

'The Neighbourhood' are never a disappointment when it comes to live performance. Jesse, the lead singer, always gives it his complete all. There were many songs performed that I wasn't familiar with, due to only listening to the new album a few times. Overall, their performance was a complete blast and 10/10 would recommend! My favorite songs of the night would have to be "scary love" and "sweater weather". "Scary love" is a song that really resonates with me because it's so relatable to my personal anxiety. The song is about being scared of this abundance of love you're getting from a significant other because you're not used to someone caring about you so much. To me, that was insanely relatable and it just touched me on a personal level a lot. The performance of it was so raw and emotional, it made me feel like I could feel what he was feeling when he wrote that song. "Sweater Weather" is always a good performance, it's one of their most well-known songs and it just feels so nostalgic whenever I hear it. The performance just showed their sense of home and just happy energy that one song once brought all of the people in front of them together!

The show in all was a really fun and energetic night, with this band you definitely get what you came for. The Neighbourhood never disappoints, and the music is a mix of their very first album to the most recent! If you're into their music at any level you were sure to have a really fun night.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Fans and players sat and waited for the hockey season to resume, which took more than 140 days.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.
