Star Wars at the Symphony

It was fun getting to watch Star Wars with a live symphony.  It’s definitely a cool experience, and one that is very family friendly.  I saw lots of families with small kids so for a kid appropriate movie, I definitely recommend the experience.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child the Play in San Francisco!

So the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is headed to San Francisco this October through May of next year.  Pre-sale tickets started on Tuesday and today tickets have officially opened to the public.  Well, I didn’t get tickets on Tuesday like I’d hoped and then tried again on Wednesday with no luck. But today, I tried one more time and finally scored some tickets!  Woohoo!

I can’t believe how far out I have to wait for the show though.  Most of the early months have already been sold out so I just randomly clicked on available dates for May 2020 and I got the tickets that I wanted.  Ok, so I’m not a crazy die hard Harry Potter fan, although I did line up at midnight for the release of book 7, but I wasn’t willing to spend more than the cheapest seats available.  For those interested, go get tickets!

Ken Jeong Comedy Show in Stockton, CA

So my husband and I saw Ken Jeong’s comedy show in Stockton last night.  We saw Kevin Hart last year and Fluffy the year before that.  Ken Jeong’s show happened to pop up in my Inbox so we gave him a chance.

He’s pretty hilarious.  If you don’t know who he is, he’s in all the Hangover movies and the latest movie, Crazy Rich Asians.  Last night his show was pretty much the same thing as his Netflix special except the audience kept heckling him so much that it turned impromptu.  Toward the end he let the audience ask him medically related questions, which he responded in a roast.

I was surprised to see a diverse crowd thinking I’d mostly see Asians, but I was wrong.  It was a mixed crowd of hecklers.  The venue itself is beautiful though, which so happens to be listed on the National Register of Historical Places.  Just look at the picture below, drop dead gorgeous.

I am so glad to be seeing Asian Americans doing comedy.  We only have a few famous ones out there – to name a few there’s Ali Wong, Jo Koy, Hasan Minaj, and Aziz Ansari.  Thank goodness for Netflix or else we wouldn’t know of these great comedians!

BLACKPINK North American Tour!

Did anyone else see BLACKPINK’s performance on Good Morning America and the Stephen Colbert Show?!

Apparently, they announced on The Stephen Colbert show their first ever North American tour, which I just checked and am bummed to know they aren’t headed to the Bay Area.  Also, most of their shows are on a Wednesday night, which isn’t something my husband and I can easily take off since we have jobs and other responsibilities.

For those interested in seeing them perform, below are their tour dates:

April 17 — The Forum, Los Angeles, California
April 24 — Allstate Arena Chicago, Illinois
April 27 — Firstontario Centre Hamilton, Ontario
May 1 — Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey
May 5 — Infinite Energy Arena, Atlanta, Georgia
May 8 — Forth Worth convention Center, Fort Worth, Texas

Don’t forget that they’re also performing in Coachella.  Unfortunately, those tickets are already sold out though.

We had so much fun at the Winner concert yesterday.  They are so good live!  For those who don’t know, Winner is currently on their North American tour.  I believe their first stop was Seattle before making their way down to San Francisco.  Boy oh boy it was another long drive into the city.  What should only be a 45 minute drive took 90 minutes, which ruined our chances for having dinner in the city.  Nonetheless, the concert was great!

 

Kpop Corner: Crush – Crush On You Tour in San Jose

20181201_202610

These past few years I’ve really gotten into Kpop.  My initial intro to it all was after watching Big Bang’s concert on Dramafever.  I’m not Korean, I don’t speak Hangul, but I’ve somehow caught on to the Hallyu wave.  Thankfully Crush had a concert in San Jose and my husband and I were able to see him perform.  Let me just tell you, he’s pretty awesome live!  He has such a great voice and his music style is pretty much our genre – soul and R&B.  I’m looking forward to more shows next year, and hopefully we get to see some kpop artists head our way.
