We had a brilliant moment of realization: someone needs to pair the bands and singers from Alive @ Five with restaurants in Stamford. Who would be awesome enough to do that? Well, since we couldn’t find anyone who’d be game, we decided to create a list of the bands and singers then provide a restaurant that would be perfect to hit up before (or after) the concert. We’ll also give you an explanation for added entertainment value. Also, check down below for costs, rules, and regulations for Alive @ Five 2013.
The Wallflowers, led by singer Jakob Dylan (son of Bob Dylan), gained popularity in the late 90′s. Their rock riffs paired with deep lyrics and Dylan’s smooth voice (as opposed to his dad’s) make for some awesome songs like “One Headlight” and “6th Avenue Heartache.” It only makes sense, then, that you’d need to eat at Zaza, a sleek, sexy, and rockstar-ish restaurant nearby the Alive @ Five stage.
It’s tough to really to say what kind of music The Mavericks play. Sometimes they are country, sometimes they border on ska, sometimes they even push over to rockabilly, and sometimes they even find a way to throw accordions into their songs. What better pairing, then, with Plan B Burger Bar at the Stamford Town Center? You’ve got bourbon, you’ve got beer, you’ve got burgers, and you’ve got lots of killer sides that all gel together for that perfect pre-show meal.
