On Wednesday, August 3, The Noheremen played for a kids-filled audience in Emerson Garden as part of the Brookline Summer Concert Series.
Two weeks before, I saw Sir Paul McCartney at Fenway Park (http://adventuresofrabin.blogspot.com/2016/07/sir-paul-mccartney-makes-history-with.html) so I was on a Beatles high.
Sir Paul had a fair amount of kids at his show but not early as much as The Nowheremen did, perhaps cause the show started fairly early at 6:00 PM.
The set featured some old mellow Beatles songs like “The Night Before” and some quicker paced danceworthy songs like “Drive my Car” and “Lady Madonna.”Lady Mandonna” and a few other tunes did include soloing.
I can’t complain because it was a free show but the one disappointment I had was when the show abruptly ended at 7:36, when it was advertised to go until 8. I thought they would play an encore or two but the show was indeed over.
Overall it was a pleasant evening with a decent dose of Beatlesmania, good friends and nice weather. I get by with a little help from my friends!
I am going to try to see last show of the series, next Wednesday, August 10th a Bluegrass show by Chasing Blue, which will take place in Waldstein Park:
