The Beatles were in Big Trouble

5 Oct


Mr. Kite would have approved. Last Thursday, the Turf Club transformed itself into Beatles central, thanks to the efforts of 89.3 The Current DJ David Campbell and writer Steve McPherson, both members of ersatz supergroup/really fun side project Big Trouble. Down in the Clown Lounge there was Beatles Rock Band, the projector upstairs had the Beatles films on loop and a giant cutout gave everyone the chance to be in the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s, albeit modified for a Minneapolis crowds with portraits of Slug, Prince, Har Mar Superstar and more. You can se the full set of Staciaann’s pictures (including Mark Wheat posing with his own portrait!) here, and check out this vid of “Something.”

The music was solid, and the band wisely stayed away from messing with the best rock and roll ever made, playing about 20 tunes, mostly from middle to late period Beatles. Most impressive was “The Huge” the suite at the second half of Abbey Road that includes “Mean Mr. Mustard” and “Golden Slumbers”, a full 20 minutes of technically challenging, really exhilarating rock and roll. The Beatles never did it live, in front of an audience and it almost seems unfair that they gave us the greatest compositions and the greatest recordings of those compositions but left the impossible task of live replication up to others. still, we all get by with a little help from our friends, and Big Trouble did more than try, they got away with a great night.
