Abbey Road side 2 at the Strand

And in the end...

Deconstructing the Beatles: Abbey Road (side 2)

Saturday, August 17 at 7 PM 

The Beatles’ Abbey Road is a masterpiece filled with classic Beatles songs, such as “Come Together,” “Something,” and “Here Comes the Sun.”  George Martin told the Beatles to think “symphonically,” and they responded by creating the remarkable side two song suite. 

Abbey Road was the last time that the Beatles recorded together at EMI Studios — soon-to-be-christened Abbey Road Studios after the album’s release. Despite the bittersweet atmosphere that surrounded the recording sessions, The Beatles’ outstanding songs and performances together with George Martin’s orchestrations produced an album that continues to be regarded as one of the best albums ever created. 

In Deconstructing Abbey Road, Beatleologist Scott Freiman has created one of his most in-depth “deconstructions.” Freiman takes the audience on a journey track-by-track explaining the inspiration for the songs and their evolution in the studio. 

$6 Advance tickets available at Highway 61 Coffeehouse.
$8 at the door.

If These Porches Could Talk is the second installment in our Porches and Private Eyes Movie Series. This time, it's Halloween and our Southern Belles are deep in pursuit of the supernatural!

While our trio are dining at their favorite lunch spot, Porches Restaurant of course, Patsy (Marlene Cupit) is arrested by the new sheriff (Kelly Porter) as an accomplice in an attempted murder. And who might have been killed, or "almost killed"? The husband of her best friend Jenny (Holly Bonney)! Now, Patsy's husband Randall is in jail, accused of the crime, and Brennan, the victim, is in the hospital in a coma! Something must be wrong and it's up to small town detective Ann (Sadie Hebert) to figure it out. When another innocent bystander gets "almost killed" in Hattiesburg, the mystery hits the road from there to Natchez, Port Gibson, and Yazoo City. With the help of their mysterious new friend Ben Pickers (Bill Perkins) and old buddies like Charlotte (Martha Arrington), the ladies are in for quite a fun, spooky ride!
