Plenty of good live music and mac ‘n’ cheese for you to take in

It’s a combination that’s hard to beat


Who doesn’t love midweek live music? Hopefully you didn’t just say, “Me!” because DJ Rob Azevedo is hosting an artist-in-the-round monthly series, called “Granite State of Mind with Rob Azevedo,” at NEC Concord, and the series kicks off at 7:30 p.m.

The first guest will be Pat Gochez, lead singer of Pat and the Hats.

The night will include a live performance, with a Q-and-A session hosted by Azevedo throughout the hourlong show, with the artists taking questions from the audience.

The shows are free and open to the public, so there’s no reason not to show up.


Trying to get funky? Good, because Bach’s Lunch Series continues at the Concord Community Music School with the jazz trio Bangkok Disco. The concert, titled “Get in the Groove: Funk, Boogaloo & Jazz,” will run from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m., so you can squeeze in a little funk session during your lunch break. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon, if you ask us. Especially since it’s free and open to the public.

The Concord High School Drama Club is hosting a Dessert Theatre, starting tonight at 7 p.m.

For $15, you can catch highlights from the last four years of drama club shows and eat some tasty desserts prepared by the culinary students at the CRTC. The show will also be held Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m.


In the cold of winter, sometimes it can be hard for some of us to find a good, hot meal. That’s where Grace Episcopal Church comes in.

The church will host its free monthly community supper from 5 to 6 p.m.

This month’s supper features meatloaf with gravy, mashed potatoes, string beans, rolls and chocolate cake for dessert.


If you like mac and cheese as much as we do, you definitely want to check out the sixth annual New Hampshire’s Own Macaroni and Cheese Bake Off.

But there’s one catch: Tickets must be purchased in advance. None will be sold at the door, so you have until Friday to lock down your spot.

But don’t wait until the last minute, like we always do, because there’s only so many spots available – and you don’t have a press pass.

The bake off runs 1 to 3 p.m. and is all you can eat, including drinks.

The cost is $16 for adults and children 10 and under are free. Can’t get much cheaper than free.
