REO Speedwagon
Though the Champaign, IL group REO SPEEDWAGON eventually became known as one of the preeminent stadium-rock bands of the late 1970s/early '80s, they started out at a grass-roots level as a hardworking local act....

One of the most popular rock groups of the 1970s and '80s, initially built on the foundation of a prominent horn section. ~ Rovi

Aaron Lewis
At the heart of Staind's loud, angst-laden music are the confessional lyrics and introspective personality of frontman Aaron Lewis. While other post-grunge bands were successful in mining the dark caverns once explored by Soundgarden and Alice in Chains, Lewis allowed his sensitivity to pour freely from his words and often pensive vocals, enabling Staind to strike a balance between heavy metal bombast and thoughtful, melodic rock....
Brantley Gilbert
Brantley Gilbert
Although it’s tempting to call Brantley Gilbert a country artist -- he certainly embraces the outlaw country side of things -- in many ways his music is closer to the heartland sentiments of artists like John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen, and perhaps most apt, Steve Earle....

Disappointing, Uncomfortable, Annoying, and Frustrating

The Cirque du Soleil show, Alegria, was in town, so I could not resist going to see it. The show was boring, relative to its sister shows, but the real downer was the venue.

The new arena, Cedar Park Center in Cedar Park TX, lacked lustre. The experience was disappointing, uncomfortable, annoying, and frustrating. The only thing that resembled a good aspect was that my early arrival to the venue allotted me a parking spot within only a few steps from the building's entrance. This new arena had zero aesthetic qualities. You would think that a modern public building would have some artistic input in the architecture, but no.

Moments after entering, I was greeted with a concession-stand price list which makes movie theatre prices look appealing. Also, why is it cash-only for parking and many inside vendors? I thought that it was the 21st century. Next, we found our seats, only to discover that our knee caps would double as head rests for the folks in front of us. Really?! Did the owners really sacrifice customer comfort in order to fit more uncomfortable patrons? Everyone who I saw had their patellas touching the seat in front of them, or were forced to sit askew or invade their neighbours' personal space. I think that this decision will create many one-time-only visitors.

As the lights went dark for the shows commencement, a blinding light appeared from an open door in the top level of the audience. "Oh", I thought, "They let one late-comer in.". I divert my gaze back to the stage. I wonder what I missed while my attention was diverted to the flood of light from the open door, and the subsequent readjustment of my pupils to the new light level. There...it happened again! Another door opened, and light pollution spilled across the arena, during a spiel by one of the singers about "no flash photography due to safety". I almost expected her to point up to the open door on the upper level and say, "...and THAT is annoying too.". These doors kept opening through the entire show, washing the audience and stage alike with the very distracting glow on the sun. This interfered greatly with the lighting effects of the show, not to mention the attention of the audience. The lower-level doors had curtains to mute this effect, but the upper-level had no apparati.

Spring for some curtains Cedar Park Center, or don't allow entry/re-entry during a performance. It seems that they were only thinking of sport events during design. The frustrating portion of the visit the the Center was at intermission when I went to use the toilet. I find a huge queue down the corridor outside the men's room which rivalled the woman's. These small restrooms cannot adequately serve the quantity of people in this building. Did the designers adhere to the minimum requirement of the law, and disregard the convenience of the building's customers? Sometimes, you need to splurge a bit to keep the customer happy. Common sense, and forethought seems to have been in short supply during the preparation to build the Cedar Park Center. I will not be returning here, even if it were free of charge.
