Cool 2006 Chicago Fest for Beatles Fans...

Info here...

Sounds like a pretty good guest lineup: Peter and Gordon, Pete Best, Klaus Voorman, Tony Barrow, plus a lot of others.

I'll be there all three days, as usual. Any others going?

Yeah I'll be there too, but just for Friday, this will be my fourth time. Yes the lineup sounds really good, big and important people in the Beatles' lives. It is going to be so fun.

I don't know, but the advance tickets are up to $80 this year for all three days. Glad I don't have to worry about airfare/hotel!

Had my room booked for a couple months now (thanks, Lynner!) and plan to be there all three days. Hopefully lots of jammin' in the rooms. Only a matter of time before the Annual Stock-Up on Junk Food month begins...

Well, it's either junk food or $12 for a deli sandwich and a miniscule bottle of pop from the hotel concession table in the lobby.

Well, I'm gonna try to get there all three days, but I don't know if I can afford shacking up at the hotel this year. It was awesome last year, but money is kinda tighter this year for various reasons.

Anyone wanna take a poor soon-to-be graduate student in?

I'll be there too - Saturday and Sunday. I reserved a room quite a while ago. I've never been there on Friday night before, just the weekend. Anyway, I'm looking forward to it, as usual!

Chicago has had a 'fest every year since 1977. It has been at this particular hotel since 1986.
