WEDNESDAY

Does time fly, or does it stand still? As painful as it may be for some to believe, 34 years have passed since the Beatles played their first American gig—here at the Washington Coliseum. But the Drive My Car Fabulous Beatles Fan Club is keeping the memory current by organizing a “34th Anniversary Celebration of the Beatles’ First U.S. Concert.” While hiring the original act is problematic, the Invasion, Washington’s own Fab Four tribute band, will do its best to fool everyone. Rock historian Bob Embrey will speak, the first 100 ticket buyers will get a copy of the historical music ‘zine D.C. Monuments, and—most fanatically—Ringo’s bass drum head with the 1964 Beatles’ logo will be on display. At 7:30 p.m. at St. John’s Catholic Church, 3240 O St. NW. $12 (benefits the Georgetown Club for Seniors). (703) 715-6635. (DN)
