House of Blues Anaheim Birthday Dinner + OMD Concert Recap!

Post written by me for House of Blues. All opinions are my own.  My husband and I both have birthdays in April. We are about a week apart so we often blow out our candles together. One of our favorite celebrations this year was at a Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) concert at the House of Blues in Anaheim. They’re one of our favorite 80’s band, and they still sound good after all this time! They performed mostly their greatest hits and some of their new songs. It was nostalgic, and we would love to see them again live if they ever come back! Dinner Before the Concert Before the concert, … READ MORE
