See The Beatles Tribute Band
The Fab Four
City National Grove of Anaheim
2200 E Katella Ave
Anaheim, CA 92806
(714) 712-2700
www.citynationalgroveofanaheim.com

Widely regarded as the premier Beatles tribute band both home and abroad, The Fab Four really are the next best thing to John, Paul, Ringo, and George. A sincere recreation of the timeless catalog of the Beatles, every detail is tended to as the Fab Four nail not only the music, but the wardrobe, the gear, and the energy. For their City National Grove appearance, the band will be performing the Beatles catalog along with a 20-piece orchestra. Typically segmenting the performance into the different eras of the Beatles tenure, the wall of sound will prove particularly powerful during songs like “The Long and Winding Road,” “Across the Universe,” and ‘A Day In The Life.”

Late Nights & Dr. Pepper: The Art of Robert Rodriguez
Laguna College of Art & Design
2222 Laguna Canyon Rd
Laguna Beach, CA 92651
(949) 376-6000
www.lcad.edu

Embracing rich color and detail, Rodriguez has churned out masterful works of 1950’s pin-ups to 1930’s art deco, to the signature style of Technicolor film posters so many of us are fond of. The New Orleans native has been the recipient of two Patrick Nagel Awards from SILA as well as Hollywood Reporter Key Arts Award. He also happens to be very fond of Dr. Pepper. The play on his indulgence in the drink, even in his art, has always been playful. Responsible for some iconic visuals including the freakin’ Quaker Oats guy, this rare, intimate glimpse at the work of such a talent is one not to be missed.
