Love is Still All You Need: Beatlemania Returns at the Putnam

“Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, we hope you will enjoy the show…”

And “enjoy the show” is certainly what Beatles fans did for decades after the band premiered in the late 1950s/early 1960s. Even after the band disbanded in 1969-70, their music continues to live on for all the generations following.

Now, fans old and new have the chance to relive the decade of some of the greatest rock music to ever exist through the Putnam Museum’s new exhibit, The Magical History Tour: A Beatles Exhibition.

The Run of the Summer

Time to lace up those running shoes hit the road again for the trademark Quad-Cities race of the summer: the Bix 7.

Beginning in 1975, the idea from the race came from John Hudetz, who wanted to bring the liveliness he experienced at the 1974 Boston Marathon to the Quad-Cities area. The idea sparked the seven-mile road race, marking the first time anyone in the QC area was allowed to run on the physical street for a road race.

Comic-Con coming to QC this weekend

Over the past three years, comic books have become the rising stars of the entertainment industry. With superheroes like the Flash, Arrow Supergirl, Batman and Spiderman coming to life in hit television series or movies to even non-superhero Archie coming to television with the twisted take on Riverdale, comic book roots have stolen our hearts.  Now, the Quad Cities is jumping on the bandwagon to provide their own Comic Con event this summer.

With over 100 artists, special guests and exhibitions, the event is sure to be a hit. It will take place Saturday, June 4th from 10-6 and Sunday, June 5th from 10-5. Tickets are $10 for those above age 12. Save an extra $5 by grabbing a weekend pass that allows you to attend the whole weekend for 15! Head on over to the Mississippi Valley Fair Grounds in Davenport this Saturday and Sunday to get the comic book experience. Find out more on their website, here.
