On the Scene
Oh, the Fab Four concert Thursday was dynamite. Some highlights: A woman marching around waving a huge Union Jack flag; screaming teens, especially when a tee-shirt of the band was thrown to them; a sea of luminescent cell phones waving in time to “Imagine ” by “John Lennon “; folks of all ages shaking their booties to “Hard Day’s Night” and “Twist and Shout”; a Sergeant Pepper costume change and Nevada City’s very own Beatles expert, Jake Michaels introducing the act. What a night! Guesstimate of attendees: 2,400.
The world drumming Saturday night at St. Joseph’s was electrifying. Impossible to sit down; had to be moving. Heard through the grapevine that this gem of a cultural center didn’t make enough to pay all its insurance premiums, so if you feel inclined, give money (contact Joseph Guida at 272-4725).
