Spring Break Concert Breakdown
As far as concerts, the week of spring break is giving us some nice action! Rihanna is launching her Diamonds World Tour, and the Allman Brothers Band are doing their typical week at the historic Beacon Theatre in New York. Having seen both artists, I highly recommend buying tickets. Rihanna has a very powerful stage prescence, and the Allman's will take you on a 3 hour jam that will bring your mind to places you've never even imagined. Derek Trucks has been playing with them, a phenomenal contemporary blues guitarist, and original members Gregg Allman and Warren Haynes are still going strong. Coheed and Cambria are on tour as well (speaking of which, you should check out their latest album review by Campus Vinyl BucknellU's very own Brian Pei!).
