Voormann’s unforgettable linework on the cover of The Beatles’ Revolver album, specifically.
But it wasn’t just yesterday that English was telling me that. Nor was it yesterday that Austin’s own Robi Polgar first staged the knockout theatre production called Wigan Pier that was so well-reviewed by my favorite ex-wife.
The Late Joys? That’s vocalist and frontman Polgar on guitar, Matt Patterson on drums and vocals, Patrick Lopez on bass, and Heath Allyn on guitar and vocals, of course.
And now the foursome's ready to Beatle it up like gangbusters, with the addition of Shane Lewis (flugelhorn), Chuck King (trombone), and Daniel Hopin doing something lovely with a saxophone. But these guys will be reprising Revolver, remember, so they won’t be playing “Yesterday.” Lucky for our live-entertainment plans, they won’t be playing yesterday, either: The Late Joys will take the Carousel’s BYOB-for-setups bastion of oldschool relaxatizing all the way to Liverpool for two shows this Saturday night.
[Note: We’d say “S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y, NIGHT!” … but, ah, that’s a whole ‘nother band, innit?]
And coming up next for The Late Joys, after that?
Well – heh – tomorrow never knows.
