It was 30 years ago today that John Lennon was murdered. And while we could on and on about the importance of his work and his influence, about how his art was so powerful that Richard Nixon feared him, we don't have to. Lennon's work speaks for itself, with songs so good it almost doesn't matter who is playing them. Almost.
Tonight, local musicians will gather at the Visual Arts Collective to pay tribute through song to a man whose work was an inspiration for their own.
The show starts at 8 p.m., costs $5 and will feature performances by Retrobates, The Boxers, Central City Music, Grant and Tristan, Martian Light Brigade, Jumping Sharks, Gerry and the Dreambenders, Brett Netson and The Universal.
