Monday Mashup: Hotel California and Spencers Theatre of Illusion

I don’t know if it’s because I love The Eagles, or if I still have a crush on Don Henley, but I was really looking forward to Hotel California performing here over the weekend. And boy, was I not disapointed. It was like I was actually at an Eagles concert, because the lead singers sounded just like Don and Glenn Frey. But nothing I can say will do Hotel California justice, so just watch the clip and you’ll see what I mean.

On Sunday, we had Spencers Theatre of Illusion, and they were a blast. There are magic tricks that everyone can pull off, and then there were illusions that the Spencers did, including one that Hodini did in the 1920s once, and then never did again. I don’t have any clips from their show, but that just means that you’ll have to catch ’em next time they’re in town.

At this point in my Monday Mashup, I usually give everyone a preview of what we have coming for the weekend, but this weekend is Easter, so we don’t have anything scheduled. Instead, I’d like you folks to do something for me (if you have Netflix this will be a piece of cake).

Beg, borrow, rent or bribe, but get your hands on a copy of the documentary Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars. It’s the documentary about the band that will be here on April 30. If you watch the documentary, you’ll see what this group went through, and it’ll make watching them live even better. 

 I bawled through the whole documentary though, just as a warning.
