Entertainment: The Glorious Sons; Barktoberfest; Made in Tahoe Festival

The Glorious Sons 

To say The Glorious Sons have been playing bigger stages these past few years is a serious understatement. Since the release of their 2015 debut, ‘The Union,’ the band has shared bills in North America and Europe with everyone from The Rolling Stones and The Struts to Greta Van Fleet and Twenty-One Pilots. Their headline shows, meanwhile, have grown at a breakneck pace, with the six-piece graduating from clubs and halls to arenas and stadiums on the back of their breakout 2017 sophomore album, ‘Young Beauties and Fools,’ which racked up more than 40 million streams on Spotify, scored the band their first Billboard #1 in the US, and nabbed them the prestigious Juno Award for Best Rock Album in their native Canada.

The Glorious Sons will be performing on Saturday, October 7 at the Crystal Bay Club at 14 NV-28, Crystal Bay.

Mindfulness for Everyday Life: A Meditation Workshop with Bhante Sujatha

“The pursuit of happiness” is a common bond that unites so many of us — regardless of our economic or social position, regardless of what we’ve acquired along the way, nearly everyone on the planet is actively engaged in finding sustainable happiness.

It is a part of our everyday life, and it guides our actions and thoughts. But How can we obtain something we can’t buy or build? Sri Lanka born Buddhist Monk Bhante Sujatha teaches that we can’t possess permanent happiness, but we can redefine our understanding of what it is to be happy, and how a simple mindfulness practice can cultivate sustainable peace that will permeate every aspect of our lives.

The Mediation Workshop will be on Thursday, October 12 from 4-6 p.m. at the Lake Tahoe Wellness Center at 695 Wolf Street #2979, Kings Beach.
