Flyover

Red square Gallery: 47 photos of the crowd and the show

A multi-part fly-by from a star-studded plane named Miss America provided a patriotic and dramatic start to the doubleheader ETC concert at Lake Clementia Saturday night. Rocking’ Down the Hiway put the crowd in a holiday frame of mind and filled the dance floor with a tribute to the Doobie Brothers that included 1970s hits “Listen to the Music,” “China Grove,” and “Jesus is Just Alright.” The Rising, below, a Bruce Springsteen tribute band, kept the energy going, starting its set with “Born in the U.S.A.” and never letting up. The band evoked the personalities of the E Street Band through a selection of iconic hits, and interacted with the dancers who surged to the edge of the stage. Click photos for larger images.

Thriller

Red square Photo gallery: 38 shots of the crowd and the show

As the sun set Saturday night at Lake Clementia, the summer's first dancers hit the floor at the Entertainment, Theatre & Culture season-opening show, enjoying the band Foreverland's tribute to Michael Jackson. The opening number was "Thriller," so of course the crowd did the zombie dance popularized by that video more than 30 years ago (if you can believe it has been that long). Foreverland, based in the Bay Area, visited the whole Michael Jackson songbook, from the Jackson 5 to his many solo hits, and packed the dance floor. It was a beautiful evening and a good-sized crowd for the show. There's info about joining ETC here(Click the photos for larger images.)
