I do realize that I’ve been repeating a familiar tune lately. But if live entertainment on a local scale is ever to experience the renaissance it truly deserves, then we need to remind ourselves how glorious it once was. If you will pardon the obvious theft; With a Little Help from My Friends, I Will try to make my case. Here, There and Everywhere clubs have been closing not for lack of talent, but for the loss of attendance. Fixing the Hole of indifference is a daunting task against an ever growing array of entertainment choices Across the Universe.
However, if you can think back to Yesterday when the icons of today were just getting started, their Magical Mystery Tours began in the clubs and taverns of their youth. These were the proving grounds where musicians and songwriters would Carry That Weight of nightly grind on their way to stardom. If not for the Revolution of night club revelry of the 1960s, many of these artists could very well have been Nowhere Man. We desperately need to Help today’s burgeoning talent Get Back to those times once more and support our future superstars.
If Penny Lane doesn’t have what you’re looking for, there’s another place close by Waiting for a Friend to find Satisfaction and Sympathy for your taste. If It’s Only Rock N’ Roll or any other genre you prefer, Don’t Stop searching for that undiscovered gem Undercover of the Night. It doesn’t really matter whether you prefer four fabs, or glitter twins. What really matters is that you have the choice. Wild Horses couldn’t drag that away, could they? Supporting local clubs is vital so they Not Fade Away and forever be Painted Black.
So, as we Twist and Shout our way down that Long and Winding Road, why not grab a Ticket to Ride and take the time for a Hard Day’s Night at a local night spot? Come Together before it’s The Last Time, and Let’s Spend the Night Together reveling in the artistry and passion of those who play for us. Unless you have a Heart of Stone, you know that the love you take is indeed equal to the love you make.
I know We Can Work it Out. I’ve Got a Feeling you can Imagine that?
