Local Groupon: Matchbox 20 and Goo Goo Dolls Concert Tix $15

With this GrouponLive deal, see Matchbox Twenty and Goo Goo Dolls at Farm Bureau Live at Virginia Beach. For $15, you get one G-Pass for general admission to the lawn on Thursday, August 8, at 7 p.m. (a $32 value, including all fees).

Doors open at 6 p.m.

Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.

$15 tickets are a great deal for this show!

Matchbox Twenty

When most bands go on hiatus, they either return rusty, or they don’t come back at all. Luckily, Matchbox Twenty isn’t most bands. After three consecutive hit albums, including the diamond-selling debut Yourself or Someone Like You, Matchbox Twenty took a break, and singer Rob Thomas forged a successful solo career. Today, the group comes back like it never left with its latest album, North, which debuted at the top of the charts. With Thomas’ sultry vocals bolstered by a newfound pep, the band embarks on its 2013 tour with the polish of a veteran arena act and the energy provided by fresh material. Fans can expect classic hits, such as “3 a.m.” and “Push,” mixed with new gems such as the infectious feel-good smash “She’s So Mean.”

Goo Goo Dolls

Something sounds different about “Rebel Beat,” the kickoff track of the Goo Goo Dolls ‘latest album, Magnetic. Atop of a shimmering dance-club pulse, tinkering keyboards bead up like rain on a windshield as John Rzeznik’s voice tunefully rasps. Then the chorus kicks in, and suddenly it’s pure, cinematic euphoria. But this isn’t the sound of a band doing an about-face. Longtime fans know that every Goo Goo Dolls album is different, from the early pop-punk days to their conquering of the alternative scene and a current turn to more layered songwriting. On their latest tour, the band launches into its rich songbook of acoustic and electric alchemy, mixing favorites such as “Iris,” “Slide,” and “Name” with charged numbers from Magnetic.

Locals: Virginia Stage Company Presents “The Odd Couple” $15.00 Tickets

Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis know that I am a big fan of local theater. I am lucky to live in an area where we have a TON of great theater. There are about a dozen local community theaters where you can catch great shows for between $12 and $20 a ticket. And whenever I am in one I promise to let you know.

One of my favorite places to see a show is the beautiful and historic Wells Theater in downtown Norfolk.  Inside you can find productions from The Virginia Stage Company- which are almost always fantastic (I actually just went recently and saw their current show which was amazing).

While the tickets can be very pricy for those of us who are frugal they have an awesome chance for people to see the shows at a REAL discount.

The Sunday before the show opens VSC has what they call a “preview night.”  The performance begins at 7 p.m. and the seating is general admission (meaning you run in the door and grab the seats you want).  The best news- the tickets are only $15!

If this interests you the next show they are going to be doing is a classic “The Odd Couple”.  (Yes THIS “The Odd Couple”).  The preview night will be Easter Sunday March 30th.

The tickets can be reserved by calling 757-627-1234 beginning Monday,  March 18th.

Check it out- it could be a great date night!

Locals: Kingsmill Spring Sale March 9, 2013

I have never been to this sale before but I always hear INCREDIBLE things.

The Kingsmill Community (yep THIS Kingsmill) had a giant “garage” sale once a year in the overflow parking lot at Busch Gardens.

This year the sale will be March 9th from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

In the event of rain the date is March 16th.

I would be sure to bring cash and be ready to hunt.

Thanks Savvy Shopper Today!
