On stage in South Florida this month

Wow. Things are getting very eclectic when it comes to concerts. Chris Isaak on one date and Twiztid on another? Neil Sedaka and Matisyahu? I’d like to find the person who would attend every single one of these; they would have very varied taste in music.

October is an interesting month. The kids are officially back in school, which is perhaps why the start of the schedule is a little quieter than usual. Things officially start to heat up, however, when Scorpions and Megadeth share the spotlight on Oct. 14. After that we’ve got Bruno Mars, Blues Traveler, The Weeknd and Kings of Leon, among others.

My parents, my friend Lynne and I recently attended a stand-up comedy show at the Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale. Legendary comic Steven Wright – he of the monotone, dry-as-dust delivery – was performing there on Sept. 16. This was our first time in this theater, and I gotta say that it really was fantastic. After being knee-capped in New York theaters, it was wonderful to stretch the legs at the Parker Playhouse.

It’s a small venue – can accommodate just over 1,000 people – and is very comfortable. So if a favorite artist of yours is scheduled to appear there, I can highly recommend it.
