Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Getting Better All The Time

There are only a couple of bands here in town that I'd trust to interpret and perform The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band—which you really should go home and listen to, if you haven't lately because it is so fucking good—and one doesn't exist anymore (Leeches of Lore). The other band in my short list here is called Cactus Tractor. They're a bunch of folky freaks and avant-garde academics, but man can they play. On Thursday, June 1, at 7:30pm, this ensemble of heady hippies will take over the Outpost Performance Space for a concert celebrating the 50th anniversary of Pepper's release. They'll perform music from the album as well as works from their own amazing and astounding catalogue of compositions. It'll be just like the summer of love, except now there's a dangerous millionaire in charge of the country and all the ice caps and glaciers are melting away at an astonishing rate—which is better than an impending nuclear confrontation with the USSR one supposes. Anywho, the time will come when you see we're all one ... so why not go, it's not like you'll have to count all the holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall to get there, for gosh sakes!
