WASHINGTON, DC - When customers walk into Adams Morgan record shop Crooked Beat, says owner Bill Daly, they come looking for local music.

So Daly is going to stop just selling records, and start making a few of his own. He’s starting a new record label, Crooked Beat Records, and he’ll release its first 7-inches for Record Store Day on April 19.

MUSCLE SHOALS connection with the first US BEATLES show
Fantastic article in the Washington Post about the Muscle Shoals musicians who backed the Beatles’ openers. Click here.
It will fascinate you, if only for their connections to Elvis, the dilemma of going back to work or to the British embassy, or the question of whether John would’ve kissed their boots.

50 years ago tonight, the BEATLES played their first US show.
Tonight in Washington, a tribute concert is going to be held in the same exact venue, where a tribute band will go on at the same exact time, and play the same exact set the Fab Four did.

Rather excited that the bands behind the 2 LPs I purchased an a summer visit to in NYC last year are coincidentally playing back-to-back nights March 3 and 4 at the Black Cat in DC: Weekend and Public Service Broadcasting.

Great story on DC’s original visit from the Beatles: "We always tried to get out of these crap things," like visiting the British Embassy! Click here for the story.

In Washington DC, on February 11, 2014 at 8:31pm… in the same exact venue on the same exact night and time, a BEATLES tribute band is going to re-create the band’s first ever US concert, down to the exact songs played (and a bit more to fill out the show). It will be the 50th anniversary of the original show.
Tickets are now available for the show at the Washington Coliseum / Uline Auditorium, which functions mostly today as a parking garage.
