Concert Review: Hozier, Cold War Kids, Brandon Flowers - Tempe Beach Park - 9 ... - Phoenix New TimesMonday, October 12, 2015
Top 40 hit "Can't Deny My Love" and followed quickly with his first solo hit "Crossfire." He told the story of the Mexican pilgrimage that inspired him to write the song "Magdalena" but didn't get to far into it before he saw a woman collapse in the audience. He stopped the song immediately and did not resume until he was sure that she was all right, which in my book is a total class act. They started again at the bridge and finished the song properly."Jilter Lovers & Broken Hearts" was up next, and it too was a stunner. It seems that his solo work translates better as a live performance, more than it does on record. He kicked up the electronica a notch with "Lonely Town" and it was apparent that he was going all out with amazing backup singers, horns and a full band—it was impressive. My favorite song from The Desired Effect has to be "Diggin' Up The Heart," and it was just as true for his show. He warned the audience ahead of time, "Don't pass out during the next song." After some amusing banter in which he asked the audience to pick one of three covers, the audience clearly responded to "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" by Rod Stewart, to which he immediately launched into "Read My Mind" by The Killers. "Still Want You" was a highlight if for no other reason than that he got the entire audience singing along with him. He gave the audience on last solo song in the form of "Only The Young" before laying out the coolest arrangement of "Mr. Brightside" I've ever heard.It was finally time for the headliner — the poster child for the man bun himself, Hozier. I have to admit, I've been kind of on the fence about Hozier. I've given his album a few spins and I enjoy it, but I know a lot of people obsessed with it and that often turns me off from really digging in. I have to say that his live performance tipped the scale in his favor in a big way. While the album is great, live there is this fantastic mix and the backup singers are more prominent. The entire sound coalesces, and this occurred right from the start with "Like Real People Do." From there, honestly, his set never let up and he immediately launched into my favorite song of his, "Angel of Small Death and The Codeine Scene." It was the bass that stood out on "From Eden" and it occurred to me that he pretty much had time to play the entire album and with the exception of two tracks that's exactly what he did. With a stunning, crunchy guitar line he took on "Jackie and Wilson" wonderfully, then broke out a cherry red box guitar, for the sexy, slow burning blues of "To Be Alone."Hozier announced "The next one's a fun one" and he delivered that announcement with "Someone New," which grabs a riff or two from "Sweet Jane," and then takes it to a whole other realm. It was fun and for some reason it struck me as early Dave Matthews, but Irish. Hozier's cover of the Beatles' "Blackbird" gave me chills — it was totally lovely and unexpected. "It Will Come Back" was bluesy as hell, and I must give mad props to Alana Henderson, Hozier's touring cellist. She was the only one in the band he called out, and her work was absolutely amazing during the entire performance. Hozier went solo acoustic for "Cherry Wine" with the band returning for the absolutely brilliant "Arsonist's Lullabye." The pure rock 'n' roll of "Sedated" was simply fantastic. He followed that with an interesting cover choice in the form of Ariana Grande's contemporary hit, "Problem" — as unexpected as the other cover. The one-two punch of "Work Song" and the finale of "Take Me To Church" finished off the evening nicely. Both songs carry a certain spiritual feeling that is... http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/music/concert-review-hozier-cold-war-kids-brandon-flowers-tempe-beach-park-9-24-2015-7690597

How Much Does a Wedding Cost on Average?Tuesday, August 28, 2018
Geography matters, too. Getting married in New Mexico only costs, on average, $17,000 according to The Knot. But if you get married in New York City (Manhattan), expect to pay around $76,944. Your head-count matters regardless of budget. The cost of a larger wedding, with 100 people or more, is significantly more than that of an intimate wedding. According to the website CostofWedding.com, 50% of couples keep their wedding costs below $15,000 by opting for an intimate wedding. Yet invite 100 or more guests for a larger wedding, and you're looking at costs totaling twice as much (or more, if you're getting hitched in a big city like San Francisco or New York City). Traditional Wedding Cost Splits Wedding traditions, at least from a financial point of view, haven't changed much over the years. Exhibit "A" is having the bride's family pay the most for the wedding. According to The Knot, the bride's family pays 45% of all wedding costs. Right behind the bride's mom and dad are the actual newlyweds, who contribute 41% of wedding costs. The groom's family pitches in, too, paying 13% of total wedding costs. While traditions remain strong, figuring out who pays for a wedding can be somewhat complicated, given that so many people are getting married (and remarried) later in life. Historically, here's a list of who pays for what in a traditional wedding. It's an important piece of knowledge, considering that you'll need to set up a wedding budget beforehand, and you'll want to know who's paying for individual wedding costs. What the Bride's family traditionally pays for: The reception, complete with drinks, food, music and a wedding cake The wedding ceremony, including flowers and any special decorations The bride's wedding gown The photographer and videographer Limousine or special transportation to the wedding and reception What the Groom's family traditionally pays for: The wedding rehearsal dinner Wedding gifts for the bride and groom What the Bride traditionally pays for: The wedding ring for the groom Any wedding gift for the groom The bride's hairstyling and make-up Wedding gifts for her bridesmaids What the Groom traditionally pays for: The bride and groom's marriage license The bride's engagement ring The honeymoon Any wedding gift for his groomsme... https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/education/how-much-does-wedding-cost-14693474
3rd day of Eddy County Fair features flowersTuesday, August 14, 2018
Eddy County Fair Community Center, where children designed floral arrangements to be judged the next day by a panel of nationally-accredited horticulture judges from around New Mexico.
