Yesterday's Sgt. Pepper program in Indianapolis went exceptionally well - and it's really interesting to note the differences between the locations of Tuesday's A Hard Day's Night program and yesterday's Pepper. I found the auditorium on Tuesday dulled the audience's engagement, and the community room yesterday had the complete opposite effect - they were completely with me for the whole program! About the same number of people attended both (30-40), but the auditorium was quite large and the community room quite small. So even though they were equally well-attended, the Pepper program felt much fuller because the room was at capacity while the auditorium was only 10% full. Anyway, it reinforces the notion that I will request community rooms over auditoriums for future programs.
August concludes with the 31st and final of my summer Beatles programs, "The Beatles: Band of the Sixites" at the central location of the Allen County Public Library (900 Library Plaza, Fort Wayne, IN) from 7-8:30pm.
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
