List: October 28, 2012: The Hamilton, Washington, DC

The Hamilton
Washington, DC

7:30 pm Eastern

Well, this one should be a very interesting list! One, many are traveling to DC for this show and DC already is a Kris stronghold. Your very own KAL is DC-based! (I'll be at the show!) Two, the area is under a hurricane watch, although fortunately, as of tonight, the worst will be occurring on Monday. You'll notice I put the local subway and weather guy on it. And three, Kris gave the New York crowd a bunch of surprises last night (including the debut of Wipe it Away from Brand New Shoes)! So who knows what we are in store for!?

The list tonight will be facilitated by @Altrus01 and thank you very much to her for the help!

Every Thursday, we take a look back at Kris in videos, and this week it's a special one! It's the third anniversary of the Kris Allen Band's first performance as a group!

Their first gig as a band? The Miami Dolphins Tailgate performance on October 25, 2009 - a five song peek into all the musical enjoyment we would come to expect from them!

If you want to reminisce a little more, check out this YouTube playlist:

But to celebrate, here's the very first song they did together as a band: Before We Come Undone! Happy Anniversary KAB!

List: October 20, 2012: Nigel Lythgoe's Private Vineyard Opening Party

Today's list is one of our little ones to see if we can get any info about a private event that Kris will perform at (along with Haley Reinhart). The occasion is the opening of Villa St. Juliette, a winery co-owned by Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick. It is private and invitation-only, so we may not get many tweets, but Nigel, Kris and Haley are on the list, along with a winery and a winery association that tweeted about the opening. We'll see how it goes!

The more interesting story may be how Nigel intends to get Kris from Houston to Paso Robles, CA and back to Dallas within two days.

Anyway, here's the list:

List: October 19, 2012: Tanger Outlets, Texas City, TX

Concert at Tanger Outlets
Texas City, TX

Throwback Thursday (October 17, 2010): Lifehouse Tour, Come Together at the Roseland Ballroom, NYC

Every Thursday we go back in time Kris-wise and remember past shows and interviews!

Today we go back two years to one of the first shows in the Fall 2010 tour with Lifehouse and Alyssa Bernal (Remember "Cali, Cali, Cali"?) As the middle act, Kris did an eight song set that included some KATA classics and some covers, including the set-closing "Come Together."

This week we all enjoyed a great video of Kris at the Little Kids Rock gala in New York City courtesy of @dbljerseygirl - Turns out she also was at one of the first Lifehouse/Kris shows!

So here's her video of Come Together from the October 17, 2010 show at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City. It's a little sound-muddled (all of the videos from that show are, must have been the sound system), but she was in the front row for one of Kris' first forays into the crowd during Come Together. Also epic Krale around 2:22.

Event Preview:

Tonight Kris joins an epic lineup of musicians (with perhaps, just maybe, a very special rumored guest to boot) in an annual fundraiser to benefit Little Kids Rock, a music education charity Kris supports. You may recall he did this event two years ago:

This year, for the 10th anniversary, the benefit is bigger and honors E Street Band guitarist, actor, and Underground Garage host Steven Van Zandt. The amazing lineup of special guests includes the great Elvis Costello, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, Members of the E Street Band Max Weinberg and Jake Clemons, Southside Johnny, Darlene Love, Dion, Gary US Bonds, Ruben Blades, Michael Des Barres, Michael Johns from Season 7 of Idol and Kris! If you think KAL (a huge Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band fan since childhood for those who did not know) is going to be fangirling, you think correctly!

The Event!

Solo: The Time of Your Life (Cover - Steven Van Zandt) - PREMIERE

Throwback Thursday (October 15, 2009): Kris Live at Seton High School

Every Thursday, we take a fun look back at a Kris video of yore!

This week we are going back to his October 15, 2009, visit to Seton Hall HS in the Cincinnati area. This produced an epic, epic, did I say epic, video of Kris covering Britney Spears' Hit Me One More Time, with help from the girls of Seton Hall. Sadly, when I went to fetch that video for this post, I discovered the person who put it up on You Tube closed their account and took it down. :(

But, luckily, radio station Q102 of Cincinnati posted this awesome video for all of us  - includes the Britney song, Live Like We're Dying, Kris playing viola, Kris singing Happy Birthday and much screaming. Enjoy!

Throwback Thursday (October 7, 2010)

Every Thursday we take a look back at a Kris video!

On October 7, 2010, the CW hit The Vampire Diaries aired an episode which included this moody scene and hopefully someone who watches TVD will explain in the comments what was happening! It's very intense, so of course the intense Kris tune I Need to Know fit perfectly as background music!
