Taking photos at concerts? TURN OFF YOUR FLASH! DO IT NOW!

Otherwise you’ll just get photos of the people right in front of you. If you don’t know how, learn how to turn off your flash - it’ll take only a moment to do.

You wouldn’t wear the band’s shirt to the concert would you? Of course not, you don’t want to be “that guy/gal.” Also, you don’t want to be “that guy/gal” with the photos of nothing but crowd… turn off the flash on your camera.

PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR FLASH. YOUR PHONE IS ANNOYING ENOUGH IN THE DARKNESS. Actually, you may want to dim your screen so as to minimize any disturbance to those near you.

On the heels of yesterday’s post about the off-Broadway production Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band On The Road, I’d be remiss if I didn’t call out the slideshow of footage and photos regarding the production. It will also fascinate you.

By way of enticement, check out this costume that can only be assumed to be related to Maxwell’s Silver Hammer: it might best Peter Gabriel’s legendary flower outfit (from Supper’s Ready).

IT WILL FASCINATE YOU: BEATLES EDITION
Oh man, when you learn something new about a band like… The Beatles… well, that is just a pretty cool thing. How about this hepcats:
In 1974, there was an authorized off-Broadway production entitled Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band On The Road!
Ted Neeley, hot off his success in the title role of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, played Billy Shears!
Alaina Reed, aka Olivia from Sesame Street, played Lucy!
the good Sgt. was played by David Patrick Kelly, who was immortalized in film by the line, “Warriors… come out to play….”!
Costume design seemingly inspired by Divine!
Lennon attended rehearsals and promoted it!
And somehow it completely flopped!
IT WILL FASCINATE YOU!
Be sure to catch the sidebar about why Lennon never ended up agreeing to appear in JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR — he had conditions!
