<p>Sir Elton John, who has sold more than 250 million albums, graciously played the Tyson Events Center in Sioux City Tuesday night.  </p>Concert Review: Elton John

BY JEREMY LAFRENTZ Backstage Entertainment I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going to my first Elton John concert.

Hunx and His Punx is setting fire to the rock 'n’ roll boys club. The California band, led by Seth Bogart (who performs as Hunx), is the openly-gay spark.

Concert Review: Bowling For Soup

My clothes are soaked with sweat, a frayed yellow wristband is glued to the hairs on my left arm, and my ears are still ringing a little. Job well done, Bowling for Soup! Last Friday’s show was at Sokol Underground, played for a sticky hive of teens and 20-somethings, with minimal airflow around us to cool our moshing limbs.
