We’ve highlighted three of these shows that dominated the night, and are a must-see on Broadway this season: The King and I, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, and Something Rotten! P.S. If you’re not in New York, we’ve got you covered too.

The 7 Bands to Checkout Before Lollapalooza 2015

There’s no doubt that there are some music gods head lining at Lollapalooza 2015. Paul McCartney, Sam Smith, Kid Cudi, Florence and The Machine are just a few of the big dogs you’ll get a chance to see this year. However, if you keep scrolling down to the lineup page, you might be shocked by some of the lesser-known gems. We’ve highlighted a couple the Razorgator team thinks should be on your radar this year.

 The Lonely Biscuits 

It’s not a secret. The team at Razorgator has a big fat crush on the dudes from The Lonely Biscuits. Actual crush? Musical crush? Bromance crush? That all depends on who you’re talking to. All we know is that is was fate that put Grady Wenrich and Sam Gidley in the same dorm room at Belmont University. We’ve probably watched the video for Ma’am about 1,000 times….today. Grey sweatpants are mandatory for our next casual Friday. Read more ›

Friday’s Round At U.S. Open Most Expensive Of The Tournament

US Open Golf

Next weekend, the second major of the PGA Tour’s golf schedule tees off at Chambers Bay in University Place, Washington. A course that prides itself on driver accuracy usually results in the winner ending around a few strokes within even par, but in last year’s mastery of the Pinehurst Resort course by Martin Kaymer, he was able to remarkably finish at -9.

Tickets to the U.S. Open on the secondary market vary on which day fans plan on attending. The best deal will be purchasing a weekend badge, which has an average price of $168.32 and a get-in price of $6, according to The single-day passes are listed below:

6/18/2015 | U.S. Open Golf: Thursday | Average Price: $514.27 | Get-in Price: $140

6/19/2015 | U.S. Open Golf: Friday | Average Price: $539.05 | Get-in Price: $229

6/20/2015 | U.S. Open Golf: Saturday | Average Price: $403.63 | Get-in Price: $188

6/21/2015 | U.S. Open Golf: Sunday | Average Price: $478.28 | Get-in Price: $197

Friday’s round is the most expensive for now (as of 6/11), featuring an average ticket price of $539.05. On the contrary, Saturday has the least expensive round with an average price just over $400. The U.S. Open Championship ends on Father’s Day, which sports an average of $478.28 and a get-in price of $197 for those making last minute plans.

Those are some high prices but there is high drama. Jordan Spieth is looking to capture the first two Major tournaments of the season after his brilliant Masters performance secured a win by Saturday.

Rory McIlroy returns stateside for the U.S. Open Championship after playing a couple of tournaments overseas that he did not fare particularly well in. Although the majority of the field is completed, there is still qualifying to be done for some of the final spots in the tournament. For now, a few of the definite players in the field include Kaymer, Justin Rose, Webb Simpson, McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Spieth, Bubba Watson, Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Jason Dufner, Rickie Fowler, Keegan Bradley, Jimmy Walker, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson and many more. The qualifying ends after this week’s tournament, the St. Jude’s Classic, which concludes on June 15.

This year is the first time the tournament has been located in the Pacific Northwest in its history.
