TGIF! As of yesterday we officially made it to fall, and I’m getting so excited about all of the fall things coming up, including hitting Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights (an annual tradition) and heading out of Florida for some true fall weather!
Last night my dad and I went to the Heart, Joan Jett, and Cheap Trick concert and it was AMAZING! All three bands are really leaders in the classic rock genre and despite really being big in the 70s (and a bit of the 80s), these lead singers have still got it! It was Joan Jett’s birthday yesterday too, so it was really cool to see everyone come out on stage and serenade her with the “Happy Birthday” song (along with the rest of the packed venue)!
Now for this week’s fun findings…
Fall TV Lineup
Hellooooo fall TV! This week marks the return and premiere of many of our favorite shows – with more to come over the next month. Have you watched any of the pilot episodes of new shows this week? I caught a few and must say the must notable is This is Us. I had seen bits and pieces of the promos and didn’t think I’d be too interested, but it’s pretty incredible and has a twist that I wasn’t expecting at all! Usually the new shows I like end up getting cancelled early on, but I think this one will stick. I read that it had the highest number of viewers tuned in for a fall premiere ever!
Hamilton’s America Special
Mark your calendar! PBS will be airing a Hamilton special on Friday, October 21! The NYC broadway went completely viral after debuting last year. And despite tickets being nearly impossible to get, it’s a popular topic of conversation everywhere you go. I somehow managed to snag tickets for a show in spring, and can’t wait to experience it in person (although not with all of the original cast unfortunately). I can’t wait to watch this special in the meantime!
Stranger Things Kids Performing “Uptown Funk”
Did you watch the Emmys last weekend? I tuned in for parts of it (YAAA Tatiana Maslany for FINALLY getting that win for Orphan Black), but the best part took place behind the scenes with a few of the cast members from Netflix’s Stranger Things, which I’m totally obsessed with. Watch the clip below to see them performing “Uptown Funk!”
