share save 171 16 R U2 MAD ABOUT APPLE’S “GIFT”???

It seemed like just any other day, I was casually walking to school listening to music on my phone. I put my music on shuffle and about two or three songs in I hear an unfamiliar song and I was like “What the…”.I brushed it off being that I have upwards of 1,000 songs on my phone so it may have been possible that I simply forgot I downloaded it. It wasn’t a completely terrible song either so I just skipped it and went on with my day.

Turns out that unknown song that came up on shuffle was one of the songs from U2’s latest album Songs Of Innocence. Apple gifted every single iTunes user their very own copy of U2’s latest album. Thanks Apple? To be completely honest I had never even heard of U2 until I went on twitter and read about apple’s very controversial gift. My whole timeline was filled with people outraged by Apple automatically uploading an album without anyone’s consent (of course there was the usual “UGH I DON’T WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL” tweets but 99% mentioned either Apple or U2.). There were those who were grateful for the unforeseen gift, others who were absolutely outraged, and the ones who had no idea nor interest what was going on AKA me.

I decided to be Team Switzerland on this one, I don’t really care much for the album but I’m not mad at apple for downloading it onto my phone. I tried to see the good in it. Apple is rumored to have spent over $100 million on this deal so hey the least we could do is pretend we like it. It’s kind of when your distant aunt and uncle show up for Christmas with a hideous sweater and you have to stand there smiling pretending you absolutely loved it. It’s the thought that counts right?

Apparently not everyone is like me (yay for individuality!) because the whole thing became so scandalous that Apple had to create an entire support site with detailed instructions on how to remove the album from your phone. Just imagine buying someone a one hundred million dollar gift only for them to hate it and have to tell them how they can get rid of it! We all sound like a bunch of spoiled kids, complaining how much we wish (legal) music was free and when we finally get it, there’s screaming and crying because it isn’t the one you wanted. #FirstWorldProblems

Vans Warped Tour hits PNC Banks Arts Center and Nikon At Jones Beach this July. The infamous festival kicked off in Houston, Texas on June 13th and this year marks the nineteenth  anniversary of Warped Tour which was created in 1993 by Kevin Lyman. The festival became sponsored by the  famous skate shoe company in 1995, Vans and it has been a hit ever since. The festival has featured artists such as Paramore, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Linkin Park, Blink-182, and more. Vans Warped Tour began by showcasing the best of punk rock music but has recently expanded it’s genres offering music to suit all tastes. Another big change that is upping the ante, parents are now admitted free of charge. Yup, you heard that right 100% free, there’s no catch, no gimmicks, just pure genius. Founder Kevin Lyman sure knows how to make Vans Warped Tour bigger and bigger each year.

This year’s lineup playing at PNC Bank Arts Center and Nikon At Jones Beach features huge bands such as Mayday Parade, The Devil Wears Prada, Born of Osiris, We The Kings, Less than Jake, Bowling for Soup and many more. Expanding the genres it also features performances by alternative indie band Echosmith, and Mod Sun, an up and coming hip-hop artist. Some warped-goers are honestly pissed at the fact that Warped Tour has expanded from its punk rock and ska roots while others are pleased with the expansion.

If you’re looking to attend one of the (literally and figuratively) hottest festivals of the summer then make sure you get tickets for Vans Warped Tour here! If you can’t make it or it’s too punk rock for your taste make sure to check out some other summer concerts at PNC Banks Arts Center and at Nikon At Jones Beach Theater.

share save 171 16 Dresses and Concerts

So on Friday I went to another concert *WOW SHOCKER* but don’t worry I promise you this one differentiates from the rest. I went to The Studio at  Dresses and ConcertsWebster Hall to what is probably the most intimate concert I have ever gone to, I mean there must have been 30 or 40 people tops! I went to see Dresses who are not that well known so I shouldn’t have been shocked but still they’re such an amazing band it baffles me. I went with two of my closest friends and of course we were the youngest people there, as always, granting us a few stares. I went mainly to see Dresses, which is this happy, upbeat lover duo which are featured in my summer playlist which you can find here, ah good old shameless self promotion.

 Dresses and ConcertsIt turns out that there were three opening bands, which was honestly pretty cool. I genuinely feel terrible for not remembering the first act’s name but they were alright, they had a catchy bass line but nothing that really caught my attention.

Next was Hey Anna and their energy on stage was great, they seemed like they were having a really good time. They were fun and upbeat and I might check out more of their stuff.              After came Boxed Wine, which were my favorite opening act. I really fell in love with their stuff so go check them out on Spotify, these guys are gonna be huge one day I know it. If you want to check out one song I suggest “Cannibal” it’s still stuck in my head, so catchy! My favorite part about seeing Boxed Wine live was that what is probably their biggest fan was in the crowd and kept on jumping on stage to sing with the band, it was hilarious. He knew every single line, of every single song, seriously I’m not even exaggerating. These guys have catchy beats and lyrics so I definitely danced along to their songs the most, I wish i would’ve known them beforehand so I could’ve sung along. I definitely would not have the guts to get on stage like that guy did though!

 Dresses and ConcertsJared Ryan Maldonado & Timothy Heller, the lovely couple that make up Dresses have such talent, their voices are truly out of this world. And for all of you wondering no, they were disappointingly not wearing dresses, they were surely dressed up though! *bud um tss* If you thought I wasn’t going to include a pun in this article then you surely do not know me, I mean how could i resist? Dresses were so amazing it pained me that so many people were talking while they were preforming. They’re the headlining act for crying out loud, it was downright rude. The lead singer Timmy was really bothered by it but I think my friends and I along with a couple other people from the crowd made up for the rude adults by belting out lyrics to all of their songs. Aside from preforming most of the songs from their debut album “Sun Shy”  they  covered “Houdini” by Foster The People and “Thinkin Bout You” by Frank Ocean and both renditions were beautifully done. Their chemistry on stage was beautiful as well, what a lovely couple and their love for each other really translates to how they preform together on stage. I had the pleasure of meeting them after the show and chatting with them. They’re such nice and genuine people, I love the band even more now!

All in all it was a great concert and it helped me escape the stress of final exams for a little while. If you ever feel stressed I completely recommend going to a concert to relieve some of that stress, it really helps. Even if you’re not stressed go check out some concerts near you and have some fun using www.dynamictickets.net. Until next week!

With summer right around the corner, what better way to get ready for the warm weather, beach days, and barbecues, than with a summer playlist! One of my favorite things to do is to make mix CDs and playlists so I thought I’d share one with you guys.

You can listen to my summer playlist right here! It’s titled Summer ’14 (how original, I know). It’s jam-packed with upbeat “summer-y” tunes that are perfect for summer road trips and all around just any thing you might do in the summer. All the songs have an upbeat, dance and sing-along quality to them that will make sure to brighten up your day. I featured songs from some of my favorite artists such as The 1975, Grouplove, The Vaccines, Vampire Weekend, Foster The People, and many others. There are also artists that I recently discovered such as Dresses, Vinyl Theatre, and RAC.

Let’s face it, I’m all about Alternative and “Indie” music, and for those of you that don’t know what “Indie” is, no it is not Native American Tribal music. I’m not going to sit here and bore you with the technical definitions of alternative and “Indie” music but in simplest terms it’s music different from what is considered “mainstream”. Odds are you won’t know many of the bands or songs in this playlist, but give it a shot, I promise you won’t be disappointed. Who knows, your new favorite band or song might be lying in this playlist. Wow, I sound like a car salesman when I’m trying to get you to check out my playlist.

I’ve seen a good 50% of the bands in my playlist live and I’d see them again in a heartbeat. So if you hear any bands you like make sure you go see if they’re in town and get tickets right on www.dynamictickets.net.  Happy “summer-ing” everybody!

share save 171 16 Weekend Fit For A Governor: Governors Ball 2014 Experience

Ahhh…Gov ball 2014, I miss it already. This was my first festival experience and now I definitely understand what all the music festival hype is about. Aside from the mild injuries, extreme fatigue from lying in the smoldering sun all day, and walking out of the subway to a crime scene, Governors Ball was one of the best experiences of my life. Great bands, great food, great people (for the most part), you really can’t beat that!

Let’s start off with Friday, or as most people called it “OutKast day”. Lets face it around half the people that went on Friday bought tickets mainly for OutKast, I mean who could blame them.

I started out the day with the up and coming band Drowners, which was a refreshing start to the day. Next, it was my third time seeing The 1975 and my best friend got me into VIP for their set so I was pretty much the happiest person alive at the moment. I was a little scared going into The 1975 due to their technical difficulties back at Coachella but seems like they got it all under control  because the show went perfectly. Bastille on the other hand was the band with some technical difficulties. I was fairly close to the speakers and I could barely hear the lead singer Dan Smith and his amazing voice. Bastille did an epic cover of TLC’s “No Scrubs”, if onIMG 26393 300x300 Weekend Fit For A Governor: Governors Ball 2014 Experiencely I could have properly heard it.

Julian Casablancas and The Voids disappointed many as no one really knew any of their songs. People wanted to see Julian Casablancas with The Strokes not Julian Casablancas and The Voids. I decided to stay by the stage right after Julius Casablancas and The Voids finished preforming and wait for Phoenix. It was over an hour wait but oh was it worth it. Phoenix have such great energy live and they just make you forget the excruciating leg aches and heat exhaustion. For the last song, Thomas Mars, the lead singer crowed surfed and ended the show literally on top of my friends and I.

Grimes unfortunately played at Gotham Tent, which is the smallest stage of them all so I could only catch a glimpse of her preforming. All I remember is that there were mimes on stage and that the tent was beyond packed. I sat down on the lawn to hear her set and she was absolutely incredible. The most memorable thing about her performance though was when a drunken girl literally fell on top of me and asked me if I was on her level. Nope, I was definitely not on her level, I hope she found her friends and got home safely.

Then the moment everyone had been waiting for, OutKast. I had low expectations remembering all those reviews from the first weekend of Coachella IMG 26721 300x300 Weekend Fit For A Governor: Governors Ball 2014 Experiencebut my expectations were blown away. OutKast seemed to have worked everything out because from the moment they walked on stage, they seemed genuinely happy. I heard there were over 20,000 people waiting to see the legendary duo and from what I saw almost every single one of them was dancing and singing along to all of OutKast’s biggest hits. OutKast definitely had a theatrical entrance which set the tone for the rest of the two hour set. Andre 3000 and Big Boi couldn’t stop smiling and enjoying themselves on stage. The highlight of the day for me was just seeing everyone dancing and just having the time of their lives when OutKast was preforming one of their biggest hits “Hey Ya”. OutKast even brought fans from the crowd onstage to dance along to Hey Ya including special guest Janelle Monae.

Saturday I woke up late, exhausted from the previous day. I got there just in time for Fitz and The Tantrums who had such a great energy onstage. Halfway through their set I walked across the lawn to the Honda Stage where Disclosure would play. I later found out that Madonna and her daughter were backstage watching Disclosure, talk about pressure! I’m still a little bummed out I couldn’t see Broken Bells but Disclosure was so much fun and everyone was dancing and singing along to the British duo.

Dancing in the scorching sun for over an hour is not the best thing to do, so I rested on the lawn making sure to gather my energy for The Strokes. People got “creative” when it came toThe Strokes as there were people standing on trees and tables and practically anything else they could find to get a better view.  The Strokes were fashionably late but the wait was worth it. Not only were The Strokes amazing, but I ate the most delicious funnel cake I had ever had in my life while watching their set. One thing I was honestly not expecting were the crying girls all around me. From the ages of 16-30 half of the girls were straight on bawling, what an a emotional reunion.

IMG 29242 300x300 Weekend Fit For A Governor: Governors Ball 2014 Experience  The headliners for Saturday were Jack White and Skrillex. Since Saturday was mostly DJs and all around upbeat bands I wanted to continue that spirit by finishing off the night by watching half of Skrillex’s set. I watched Jack White for a little while which was an amazing experience but decided to party with Skrillex for the rest of the night. Everyone was definitely partying that night,maybe a little too much.Walking home on the bridge someone almost threw up on my feet so that basically sums up the party atmosphere on Saturday.

Sunday brought bittersweet feelings as there was an amazing lineup but it would be the last day of Governors Ball and we would all have to return to our monotonous lives the next day.       My day started off with Banks who called all women goddesses and all men gods and covered one of my favorite songs “Are You That Somebody” by Aaliyah.

Next, I got front row for Tyler, the Creator which was amazing up until the last song, “Tamale” where I was elbowed in the stomach during a mosh pit. Tyler and the rest of the Odd Future gang including Earl Sweatshirt, Taco, and Jasper had such great energy on stage and had us cracking up the entire time. I was dying of laughter when Tyler made the whole crowd boo him after messing up a song. My best friend’s nephew came with us on Sunday with his mom and he’s only 11 so my favorite thing about the day were people’s reaction to seeing him. During Tyler everyone gave him space and let him be front row so he could see. When the mosh pit was forming, a group of people formed a barricade around him allowing him to leave unharmed with his mom. There were the occasional jaw drops and rude remarks about him being so young but I think we all wish we were eleven and going to music festivals. I didn’t even go to my first concert ‘till I was fourteen imagine being eleven and going to a festival!

I was planning to watch J Cole afterwards, who I’ve loved since I was in middle school but after hearing the first two songs I was truly disappointed. I ended up leaving and went to the silent disco instead. For those of you that have never heard of a silent disco, it’s basically a disco where everyone’s wearing headphones. So if you take them off or record videos it is the funniest thing ever because it looks like they’re dancing with no music playing.

Next, came Foster the People who are one of the best bands you can ever see live. They have this energy about them that leaveimg 4224.1 300x300 Weekend Fit For A Governor: Governors Ball 2014 Experiences you dancing and singing a long the whole set without a care in the world. They had a varied set playing some of there classics such as Liztomania where I swear not a single person on that island was not belting out the lyrics as well as some their new songs from their latest album “Coming of Age”.

I bravely decided to wait over an hour for Vampire Weekend since they are one of my favorite bands of all time. So as soon as Foster the People finished their set,  I made my way up to the front for Vampire Weekend along with hundreds of others. The hour wait was tough but I made some new friends and it was beyond worth it. My review is a tad bit prejudiced since they’re one of my favorite bands but I promise it’s truly honest. If I could only choose one set to relive it would be Vampire Weekend’s. I was looking at the people crying over The Strokes and thinking they were a little crazy but as soon as Vampire Weekend stepped onstage I became a hypocrite because I started tearing a bit too. Maybe it was the fact that this was the final act before the end of Gov Ball or I’m just really in love with this band but the teenage girl inside me definitely came out. In my defense I wasn’t bawling, my eyes only got watery when they first came out and during my personal favorites Oxford Comma and A-Punk. The setlist was more then I could have ever dreamed of, with a good amount of songs from each of their albums and they even included an unreleased song.  There was never a dull moment in their set but one of the greatest moments definitely had to be the energy during A-Punk and at the end when Ezra threw more than a hundred $2 bills into the crowd.

I’m still not sure if Gov Ball was trying to end the weekend with a pun by making one of the last acts Vampire Weekend or if it was just a funny coincidence. Regardless, I’m glad they ended with Vampire Weekend because I think I got so overwhelmed I ended up going home with a nose bleed, talk about excitement! Special thanks to the kind lady who handed me napkins to stop my nose bleed. Overall it was a bloody good weekend (pun intended) and I will definitely be back next year. The question is, will you?

share save 171 16 The Black Keys

You may know them from their successful albums Brothers and El Camino, but now the Black Keys are switching things up with their new album Turn Blue. With the new album which was released on May 9th, the Black Keys  show us a whole new side of them. The duo, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney worked in collaboration with  Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton who helped write and co-produce many of the songs on the album.

The Black Keys Show 300x300 The Black Keys         The Black Keys switched things up, taking some major risks with this album. The Keys broke out of their comfort zone and broadened their musical horizons. Turn Blue is indeed an album that is “turning blue”, the duo incorporated more blues and psychedelic rock in this album differentiating it from their past albums. With Dan going through divorce proceedings, the lyrics in this album are more profound and reflective of his personal problems. Turn Blue is also more polished album, which has a lot more bells and whistles compared to their old stuff. The Black Keys’ old albums mainly focused on the vocals, guitar, and drums and Turn Blue incorporates not only more instruments but synthesizers and sound effects as well.

The album has caused quite a bit of controversy with some people loving it and others not so much. The only word that the two sides can agree on is that the album is different. The album is something that the Black Keys have never done before, that being a success in itself but many old fans seem The Keys 300x276 The Black Keysdisappointed.  It is not the Key’s strongest album but it can’t be denied that there are some amazing tracks including Weight Of Love. Weight Of Love not only starts off the album but it is also the longest song on the album reaching almost 7 minutes. The song gives off a 70s psychedelic rock vibe and the guitar solos are something reminiscent of Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd. The albums biggest hit Fever is catchy, sounding almost pop-like but it still maintains it’s rock and soul roots. Every song on the album is quite different from each other, yet when listening to the whole album back to back it sounds very cohesive and put together.

Make sure you check out the album and decide whether you’re a fan who’s completely in love with the album or if you’re a fan who’s going to stick with the old albums. Regardless, the Black Keys are one of the best bands you can see live so make sure you check out this amazing duo going on tour this fall in a city near you. The Keys will be touring with Cage the Elephant, Jake Bugg, and St.Vincent, and tickets are on sale now so pass by www.dynamictickets.net to see tour dates and other tour information.

share save 171 16 The Neighbourhood at The Summer Stage

From the beginning The Neighbourhood have kept this idea that the music always comes first. With that in mind, they released their first single Female Robberyin 2012 without offering any insight into the band or who they were. After their identities were revealed, it was uncovered that The Neighbourhood was a band that originated in California despite the English spelling of their name. The band consisted of lead vocalist Jesse Rutherford along with Mikey Margott, Zach Abels, Jeremy Freedman, and Bryan Sammis. Drummer Bryan Sammis announced in January of 2014 that he was leaving the band to pursue a solo career in music, Brandon Fried took his place shortly after. Lead singer Jesse Rutherford started out in the hip hop genre, explaining the influences of R&B and hip hop in this alternative rock band. The band as started quite a revolutionary movement with not only an interesting combination of genres making their music truly unique but they have sparked a black and white movement. From their pictures, to their music videos, to their interviews everything is black and white. The band even chooses to only wear black and white clothing adding to their aesthetic. Rutherford stated that this is all part of his vision, to show that there is “No Grey” to them, that everything is simply black or white.

The Neighbourhood32 300x300 The Neighbourhood at The Summer StageOn May 20th the Neighbourhood played one of their biggest shows yet, selling out Rumsey Playfield also known as The Summer Stage.  I had the incredible opportunity of not only attending this show but I also got to see them back in October of 2013, with the original drummer Bryan Sammis at Terminal 5. I arrived around 4:00 PM (an hour before doors opened) and joined thousands already waiting in line to see the band. The large venue comfortably accommodated the 5,000 eager souls waiting to see The Neighbourhood. There were three opening acts: DJ Born Casual who not only opened up the show but took over intermissions as well,Little Daylight, and Danny Brown.

As soon as doors opened DJ Born Casual was up on stage creating a party atmosphere and prepping you for the excitement that was to come. Born Casual made sure to play a wide variety of artists and genres to make sure everyone had fun. From Disclosure, to Drake, to Souljia Boy, to Tupac, the DJ sure knew how to keep the crowd dancing and singing along.  Shortly after the first opening act Little Daylight, came on. The alternative pop trio had a sweet and airy/magical vibe to them. While a great band, who I will certainly follow in the future they did not seem like a suitable first act for The Neighbourhood. The band lacks the “edge” and energy that The Neighbourhood has and is on the opposite end of the spectrum. Think of Little Daylight as the “cute” little girl who wears bows and ribbons and the Neighbourhood as your class troublemaker and rebel who only wears black and leather. I would like to see Little Daylight open for Matt & Kim or maybe even The Naked and Famous but definitely not The Neighbourhood.

Then came Danny Brown, a unique rapper who MTV describes as “one of rap’s most unique figures in recent memory.” He’s an alternative hip hop rapper with some electronic and trap influences. From the moment he walked on stage to the moment he walked off he had the crowd jumping and dancing to all of his raps. Even those who were just introduced to him like myself were instantly jamming along. Reminding us of The Neighbourhood’s hip hop roots Danny Brown could not have been a better opening act.

Before The Neighbourhood came onstage I had mixed feelings about the show. I had high expectations in regards to their unforgettable show at Terminal 5 The Neighbourhood SummerStage1 300x300 The Neighbourhood at The Summer Stagelast October but at the same time I was feeling a bit uneasy due to the fact that drummer Bryan Sammis wasn’t going to be there and a stranger would be in his place. That, on top of the fact that I thought all of their old songs from The Love Collection were replaced with new ones had me a bit worried that my expectations weren’t going to be met.  Let me tell you, not only were they met, they were surpassed. Before The Neighbourhood even came onstage, the crowd was roaring. I felt bad for the neighboring buildings! The crowd was on edge waiting for them to come out, and as soon as they stepped foot onstage they received a crazy New York City welcome.

The Neighbourhood started off with Silver from their new mixtape. Silver transitioned into Everybodys Watching Me (Uh Oh) which truly started off the night right for me. I was greatly pleased with the setlist as they did their best to incorporate new songs without eliminating their old stuff. Someone had previously told me that West Coast and all the other songs from The Love Collection were not going to be included in their set anymore, which basically had me going into the show slightly disappointed. Not only did the band include West Coast, Jesse Rutherford preformed an acapella version of it, which left us all in utter awe and shock. The Neighbourhood are known for their crazy, exciting, thrilling performances and to see such a raw and heartfelt performance during West Coast was beyond what we could have ever imagined. All eyes were on Jesse as his voice traveled across Central Park. Jesse was in the spotlight as the rest of the band simply stayed back and watched him blow the crowd away with just his vocals and lyrics.

After that the band went The Neighbourhood2 300x300 The Neighbourhood at The Summer Stageback to their normal set including their newer singles and mix tapes as well as songs from their signature album I Love You. and even songs from their Im Sorry. EP.  They even played A Little Death from their single Thank You, which they didn’t play at the last show I went to, so it was a pleasant surprise.The true highlight of the night was of course when they played Sweater Weather, I don’t think there was one person in that crowd that was not singing along. The off-key, yet beautiful screams of the crowd singing along overpowered Jesse at times but it was a beautiful moment. Jesse kept looking at the crowd with a huge smile plastered on his face, the whole band seemed in awe at the reaction as soon as the opening beat for Sweater Weather started playing. I think that’s my favorite part about concerts: The intimate connection between the band and the fans who’ve finally got the chance to come together and enjoy one of life’s simplest pleasures, music.

Overall, The Neighbourhood yet again delivered not only a spectacular show but an out of this world performance. They have this energy about them that makes them one of those bands that you want to see over and over again because they are somehow even better live.

The only critique I have about the show, as expected, is that the drummer was not up to par with former drummer Bryan Sammis. Fried is an amazing drummer nonetheless, but he can’t replace Sammis. This was especially evident during Sweater Weather where the drumming is one of the most important aspects of the song. It is understandable that he doesn’t preform the songs exactly like Sammis did, but for me it just lacked the energy and power that Sammis brought onstage with him. Fried’s drumming almost gets “lost” while Sammis took full control of the stage and really moved the crowd.

While nothing can compare to the first time you see a band live, The Neighbourhood made sure to come close, even with the absence of drummer Bryan Sammis. All in all, it was an amazing show and I definitely recommend you see these guys at least once in your life because you won’t regret it.

Rumors are circulating that Alice Cooper could be playing the gruesome Green Goblin in Spider-Man, Turn off the Dark.  Alice Cooper is said to be in negotiations with the production to take on the character, according to a recent NY Post article.  This wouldn’t be Cooper’s first time to a stage show as he has been featured in Guillotines, Electric Chairs, Fake Blood, Boa Constrictors and several others.

Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark loosely follows the storyline of the comic book series and the 2002 film adaptation of Spider-Man, while adding its own twist on the popular tale. When nerdy teenager Peter Parker is bitten by a genetically altered spider, he discovers he has obtained super strength, web-spinning abilities and other spider-like powers. Parker soon finds himself battling scientist-turned-villain Norman Osborn, who adopts the alter-ego of the Green Goblin. As Parker’s troubles begin to pile up, he looks toward Arachne, a mythical spider goddess, for inspiration.

Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark is one of the most technically elaborate Broadway musicals of all time, Spider-Man brings the Manhattan skyline to life on stage and features incredible aerial stunts as Spider-Man flies over the audience to fight his foes. The musical features a rock score penned by famed U2 musicians Bono and the Edge. Similar to other projects from the show’s original director, Julie Taymor, there are inventive costumes, puppets, masks, projections and more stunning visual techniques used throughout the show. Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark is sometimes a sold out show.
