The Beatles invaded America in 1964. Now Beatles fans have a chance to see “1964…The Tribute” at 8 p.m. on Friday, May 10th at Celebrity Theatre.
On February 9, 1964 the Beatles sang four of their original songs (“All My Loving, “She Loves You,” “I Saw Her Standing There” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand”) on The Ed Sullivan Show. That hour revolutionized American popular music, and it would be impossible to imagine a pop or rock group that has not been influenced in some way by its aftermath.

Californian beauty Alex Rose Wiesel, known for her role in Dexter, was spotted on Robertson Boulevard, Beverly Hills. We asked her where she was going, and she said Beauty on Robertson. We asked how she knew it was there, as it’s off the beaten track, and she told us she followed the numbers until she got to 239. Some people can be very sarcastic.
TIDBIT: The promo in Australia for Dexter was pulled after the Australian government filed complaints regarding the claim that the city of Adelaide had the highest serial killer count per capita. Considering Australia was originally populated by criminals exported from the UK, these Ozzies have suddenly got very touchy.
