On the 50th anniversary of the release of the album A Hard Day's Night (at least in England - the US release was July 10), 8 hours of driving today will get me to Cheyenne, Wyoming for another rendition of "Band of the Sixties" from 7:00-8:30pm at the Laramie County Library (2200 Pioneer Ave, Cheyenne, WY).
The biggest news of the day, however, is that I received an email from Dr. Ken Womack of Penn State Altoona (who organized the "International Beatles Conference" at the same University this past February in commemoration of the Beatles' first Ed Sullivan broadcast, at which I participated) inviting me to contribute a chapter to an anthology of Beatles scholarship. With a deadline of October 1, authoring this chapter on "The Beatles and the Avant-Garde" is now my top priority!
