50 years ago today, February 9th 1961, The Beatles played Liverpool's most famous music venue The Cavern Club for the first time! They would then go on to play there 252 times. John had started playing there before the Beatles with his band The Quarrymen (who eventually became the Beatles once Paul, George and then eventually Ringo joining). AND THEN, three years later on this exact date, a record 73 million people tuned in to The Beatles' inaugural appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show". What's even crazier is how my dad recalls watching that on TV live when he was 5 years old. Insanity!
We're finally back this Saturday at Clintons (THANK GOD) and we'll be bringing you a very romantic/nomatic Valentines Day edition of Shake, Rattle & Roll. Shit is bound to get m-e-s-s-y so in honor of Valentines Day the hottest mess of them all we have made two playlists for all the romantics and nomantics out there.
