"She Loves You -- The Beatles and New York"

fab faux smallThe Egg and musicologist Gordon Thompson are teaming up for a week of events in February to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' arrival in New York. Event blurbage (link added):

The festivities begin with eight multi-media lectures held in various venues around the Capital Region. Led by musicologist and Beatles scholar Gordon Thompson, the program, entitled "She Loves You - The Beatles and New York" will explore the impact of the British invasion on New York, led by The Beatles in February 1964, their historic concert at Shea Stadium, John Lennon's NYC connection and discuss how their music continues to be an inspiration to composers and performing artists today. ...
The celebration culminates with two performances at The Egg, beginning with "All You Need is Love", a Valentine's Day Concert of Beatles love songs performed by a number of regional artists. "This concert will demonstrate how the Beatles' music has been an important part of generations of New York performing artists, whether they are rock, jazz or folk musicians, said Peter Lesser, The Egg's executive director.

The schedule for the eight multimedia lectures is after the jump. And that concert at The Egg -- "All You Need is Love" on February 14 -- is free, though you'll need a ticket.

The week of Beatlemania concludes with a show by The Fab Faux, a Beatles tribute act, at The Egg February 15. Tickets for that start at $35.
