It all started with the dream of playing the giant medley that closes out Abbey Road and the Beatles’ career. For Big Trouble, an instrumental band of players with arms’ length resumes in other bands (Heiruspecs, Kid Dakota, Brutal Becomings, Supreme Privacy, Jessy Greene, Crossing Guards, Aaron & The Sea, Traditional Methods, and many more), they knew the perfect singer to carry that weight: David Campbell, DJ on 89.3 the Current and be-wigged member of E.L.nO. In the past, they’d teamed up to cover everyone from Sonny & Cher (with the help of Lucy Michelle) to The Outfield to Weezer, and the re-release of the entire Beatles’ catalog provided the perfect occasion to do something giant and over-the-top.


So Campbell recruited more singers to help him make it better: Chris Pavlich from indie rockers Two Harbors, Aaron Schmidt from holding a cold Budweiser in Ashtray Hearts, and Brian Just courtesy of his bad, singer-songwriting self. Big Trouble got by with a little help from one of its friends in the form of dVRG, keyboardist from Heiruspecs, and the supergroup was set. A long and winding setlist was handcrafted and the musical tribute to the Beatles was ready. But that wasn’t nearly enough.


When “The Beatles are in Big Trouble” goes down on Thursday, October 1 at the Turf Club, there’ll be more. GameCrazy will be setting up the new Beatles Rock Band game for competition in the Clown Lounge (with prizes). Matt Scharenbroich (The Plastic Constellations) is hard at work painting a giant 8’ x 8’ mock-up of theSgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band cover (with cutouts for heads, naturally) for people to take their picture with. Paul Creager from Square Lake Music & Film Festival is helping out with video so we can show Beatles movies all night long. And DJs Jim McGuinn and Jill Riley from 89.3 the Current will be spinning Beatles and Beatles-related songs all night.


We hope you will enjoy the show.

And as I am on stage, It’s hard to take photo’s.  I have asked that people send me some pics but have not gotten to sort through any just yet.  Here are my crowd shots.  Do you see yourself?  I know some of you fools!

Trying to catch a cold?

And the contingency of kids that couldn’t get in because they were too young to drink.  You guys are the most hardcore for sure.  Even after the cops annoyed ya’ll off of the fence.  Thanks for hanging out and watching from the sides and the back of the stage!
