As you most likely already know, tomorrow night is the second concert in the Unedited series, Unedited: Beatles, Bach &; Beer. [7PM, Main Reading Room of the CLS, $15, get em online here.]
Dear reader, your loyal blogger is resisting the temptation to turn this blog post into one long string of Beatles puns... and opening up iTunes and seeing that I've got 604 tracks tagged "Beatles" is not helping. I mean, "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite", "Come and Get It", "Please, Please Me"... these things are begging to be punned upon!
But I won't. Instead, how about a preview of tomorrow night's terrific setlist: "Something", "Hey Jude", Bach's chorale no. 6, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", and a whole lot more. Music, beer, audience participation (you'd better be prepared to bark and howl during "Hey Bulldog"), and even a little door prize (somebody's getting a Charleston County Parks Gold Pass, good to get you into any county park for a year fo' free). Be there.
[And if you can't be there, you can still support the series. Go here to make a donation to Unedited via PayPal. 'Cause quality arts programming is not cheap. And what says quality like "Why Don't We Do It In the Road" performed on a cello?]
We all work in a Yellow Library...
