We share music with one another for a myriad of reasons; It can bring a tear to the eye, a dozen goosebumps down your spine or surface a memory you haven’t accessed in some time. There is special significance in a lyric, a melody or the instrumental backbone of the piece, resonating in a specific way with each listener.

John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr have mastered this relationship with their listeners, changing their world of music in such an eloquent, modest and extensive way. There will always be a continuous celebration of The Beatles, something I witness on a daily basis. Without hesitation, the entire LC Pavilion will serenade each other in “Come Together”  when the sounds of “shooop” echo from the loud speaker. There’s never not a reason to celebrate the men who celebrated sharing music with the world.

Although, I may just have an even grander and more improved way to celebrate The Beatles and their legendary records– all while drinking, dancing and benefiting the greater common good.

Two of Columbus’ local musicians are passionately fighting cancer, emphasizing the vision of peace, positivity and support. With Columbus’s Peletonia Bike Race in near sight, Peletonia and its supporters will and continue to achieve their ultimate goal. A goal we all wish and desperately seek to find– a cure for cancer. Local two-piece Columbus band, Our Mutual Friend, will be hosting a Beatles cover event Saturday, July 26th at Park Street Patio, called “A Ticket to Ride.”

When: Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Where: Park Street Patio / 533 Park Street Columbus, Ohio 43215

When: Doors @ 5:30 p.m.

$10 cover (100% proceeds donated to The James Cancer Research Center through Pelotonia)

Andrew Nielson and Eva Hyder, members who comprise the local band Our Mutual Friend, have a mission in mind and are set to conquer their goal. Alongside Our Mutual Friend, local bands Lucas, The Brave Whether, Year of the Buffalo and Go Analog will tribute to The Beatles in pursuit to raise funds for Peletonia. Join the Columbus musicians and celebrate in honor of Peletonia. As the community of Columbus  so commonly does, come support the brilliant goals for creative action.
