Neptune Theatre makes offer to Sir Paul McCartney

May the entertainment wars begin!

Not sure what to say about this that wouldn't involve another groaner Beatles pun (something about rocky raccoon or doing it in the road maybe), so I'll let you watch this for yourself (note: use the handy fast-forward arrow—you'll get the gist). Even if the list of puns in this video could be spread in length from one end of the Common to the other, the video does raise an interesting point. There's a lot of competition for entertainment dollars this summer, and arts organizations are going to have to find inventive ways of standing out. But really, if any cultural organization seems to have the gods either working for them/or against them, it's Jazzeast—their opening and closing Jazz Fest concerts are on the same nights as KISS and Sir Paul.
