You Haven’t Heard the Beatles Like This

Imagine an alternate universe where the Beatles were some sort of jazz or funk group instead. Tonight, this alternate universe exists at the Beehive, as local musicians take the stage and deliver some very different Beatles covers throughout the evening. No word on sitars.
