If you (like me) committed the Skidmore cardinal sin of missing out on Beatlemore this weekend, absolution is readily available. You can (re)live the magic in this recording of Saturday night’s Skidmore-only performance below.

[On another note: check out the music department’s livestream page for a whole slew of archived events that you probably missed as well. Shit, what with everything being thrown on the Internet, why go out anymore? Stay inside. Live your life from your computer desk. It’s safe there.]

Obviously, you should watch the entire performance, but we’ve done you the service of writing out the setlist below the video. You know, just in case you’re only watching so you can see your friend–the one you totally promised you would go, but you waited until the last minute and couldn’t get a ticket or just decided that your Northwoods apartment was too warm and toasty to schleck all the way to Zankel.

Lively Lucy’s Presents: Bobmore Dylanmania (11/20)

Are you totally over The Beatles? Would you take Blood on the Tracks over that overrated and derivative piece of trash Sgt. Pepper’s anyway? Is the intimate and cozy feel of Falstaff’s more appealing to you than the impersonal expansiveness of the Ladd Concert Hall? Do you think Paul McCartney talks funny?

If any/all of these are the case, well, chill out. You can like The Beatles and Bob Dylan, because both are seminal cultural figures and played large roles in developing music as we know it today. And you can still go to Beatlemore this weekend. But Bobby isn’t the focal point of the school’s biggest annual event, so the old reliables Lively Lucy’s are giving him a major shout-out this Thursday, 11/20, with Bobmore Dylanmania.

The evening will consist of some folks playing short sets of their favorite one to three Bob Dylan songs. I sure hope someone performs this seasonal gem. That’s pretty much all there is to it. Should be fucking awesome. Lively Lucy’s always finds cool ways to switch things up every now and then, so be sure and swing by Falstaff’s this Thursday at 8:00pm and support them and anyone performing.

Skidmore’s annual Beatles tribute concert for charity, Beatlemore Skidmania, is right around the corner.  For the uninitiated, Beatlemore is the brain child of music professor and “Beatles scholar” Gordon Thompson.  It’s three nights of Beatles music reinvented by Skidmore musicians who audition for slots in the show.  Here’s what they have to say:
