March of the Meanies, a Beatles tribute band based in Madison, will open a special WORT Birthday Bash at the High Noon Saloon, 721 East Washington Avenue in Madison, this Saturday evening, December 5th, at 5:00 p.m.
Fronted by singer/guitarist Brandon Beebe (Chief Meanie), March of the Meanies is a power-pop trio featuring Rob Garza (aka Max) on bass & Chad Bartell (The Dreaded Flying Glove) on drums. This is how they describe their aim:
“March of the Meanies’ tribute to The Beatles is not about reproducing the look or even the sound of the Fab Four; rather, it is about acting naturally and playing their music in a way that is personally meaningful.”
In the animated film Yellow Submarine (1969) John, Paul, George & Ringo battle the Blue Meanies for primacy in Pepperland. Expect no fancy costumes from March of the Meanies – just good rock ‘n’ roll music.
The birthday festivities run from 5:00 p.m. till close. There’ll be fine cuisine from New Orleans Take-Out, a giant WORT 89.9 FM Community Radio birthday cake, a 50/50 cash raffle, six bands & WORT DJs spinning tunes between sets.
The suggested donation is:
$20 for an All Nite ticket (includes dinner & cake); or
$10 for a Late Nite ticket (9:00 p.m. entry – with cake saved for latecomers).
Tickets are available at WORT (118 S. Bedford St.), at Lakeside Press on Willy Street & at High Noon Saloon. You can also score them at high-noon.com.
You must be at least 18 to be admitted. This special event is sponsored by 5NINES Data, Delta Properties, Heartland Credit Union, Mother Fool’s Coffeehouse & ARA Automotive Repair.
