More information on the event Facebook page, plus this groovy cool (is that what we said back then?) poster.
It’s Classic Albums time again, this time going back to the incredibly influential musical year of 1979. Please join us at Iota in Arlington, VA on March 21 for a re-creation of some of the musical highlights of my late high school years, featuring:
- Harris Face and the Restoration as the Eagles (The Long Run)
- Two Dragons and a Cheetah as the Clash (London Calling)
- The WeatherVanes as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Damn the Torpedoes)
- The Sweater Set as Michael Jackson (Off the Wall)
- Jason Mendelson and the Open Doors (with yours truly at the keyboards) as Pink Floyd (The Wall)
That Pink Floyd act is pretty ambitious; we’re starting to shed heavily now in preparation for the big night. Hope to see you there!
p.s. Don’t forget about the upcoming benefit for FAIR Girls featuring my regular jazz group, Aaron Myers and the Black Fox Ensemble. Tickets are still available for this February 20 soiree at the Swiss Embassy in NW Washington, DC.
