Millennial: When we first saw Flor de Toloache at ACL Fest last year, I was starstruck. They were absolutely amazing! I had not seen a mariachi band live since high school, never mind an all female one. It was my favorite discovery last year, not just at ACL, but for the whole year. So I was super excited to find out that they would be … Continue reading Flor de Toloache – Stubb’s Austin, TX 6/30/2019
Note: Recording equipment was strictly prohibited at the “Hamilton” performance we’re reviewing, for obvious reasons. Therefore the audio clips we include are from the original Broadway cast recording, not the show we’re referencing. Millennial: My dream finally came true! We finally saw “Hamilton”! I have been waiting for this for almost four years. I have been in love with this musical ever since the Broadway cast … Continue reading Hamilton U.S. Tour – Austin 5/28/19
Millennial: I have been wanting to see St. Paul and the Broken Bones since their song “Call Me” first came out in 2014.

Every member of the huge eight-piece band performed amazingly well and kept up their hyped … Continue reading St. Paul and the Broken Bones – Stubb’s Austin, TX 5/10/19

Mom: It’s time for the first annual Best of the Year edition of Mom and the Millennial. 2018 was a tough year personally, and I didn’t get to see as much live music as I wanted, but I still saw some amazing shows, listened to some great music, and discovered some new (and new-to-me) bands to love. One of the best things about 2018 was … Continue reading Our Favorites of 2018!
Millennial: For this review, since I actually went to the Bruno Mars concert and Mom didn’t, I will review the actual concert, while Mom will be sharing her thoughts on Bruno Mars, Charlie Wilson, and how they are as artists and performers in general. I have been so excited to see Bruno Mars since I first bought a ticket with my best friend early on … Continue reading Bruno Mars ft. Charlie Wilson at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX – 10/14/2018
Mom: Our ACL experience for 2018 is complete, and after a few days to recover, I have some thoughts on the event. The changes made last year, like adding more overall area to the festival, especially more space for relaxing in the shade, and upgrading the port-a-potties, make for a much more enjoyable weekend. It seems C3, the event’s producers, took some of the flak … Continue reading ACL Fest 2018 Wrap-Up
