This week in Concord history

May 26, 2003: Just about the only full-fledged Memorial Day parade is the procession of cars, complete with trailers and car-top carriers, heading south down Interstate 93, calling an early end to the rainy holiday weekend. Cities and towns around the state either downscale Memorial Day ceremonies and parades, cram events indoors or cancel them altogether.

Friday night Magic is kind of a thing at Double Midnight Comics

It’s Friday night and the back room of Double Midnight Comics is a battlefield. Lives are being taken left and right and nobody seems to have any interest in stopping it. Actually, it’s kind of encouraged. No, this isn’t some sort of Night at the Museum type occurrence where superheroes and villains have come alive to square off in a fight to the death. This is just what happens every Friday from 7 p.m. to about midnight. It’s Magic...

Matt Bonner on Twitter was as good as you thought it would be

There are a lot of things that would make Twitter better – automatic troll control, a loud buzzer sound whenever someone hastily posts shoddily-sourced news,  scratch-and-sniff functionality – but undoubtedly the No. 1 thing Twitter needs is Matt Bonner. Bonner has thus far resisted opening his own account, and we’re all a little worse off for it. How do we know? Because we saw the true power of Bonner tweets last week. Concord’s own...

Wouldn’t one of these tiles look great in your back splash?

Susan Beere has spent the better part of the last quarter century creating ceramic tile art, ranging from large murals to small paintings. As you can tell from this selection, Beere is obviously a big fan of birds, baby birds and just about anything related to birds. In recent years, Beere has been working with free form tiles (like the giant hummingbird on the other page) that would certainly create quite a buzz among the cats in...
