Abbey Road on the River @ The Belvedere

May 24-28

The Belvedere
$10+; various times

This year, Abbey Road on the River, one of the world’s largest Beatles-inspired music festivals, will present … Jefferson Starship? Yes, that’s the band that apparently built this city on rock ’n’ roll back in the ’80s, under the name Starship. The reformed Jefferson Starship — featuring founding Jefferson Airplane member Paul Kantner and someone named Cathy Richardson filling in for the retired Grace Slick — will perform a show Saturday that features a blend of Beatles songs and its own hits, such as “White Rabbit” and “Somebody to Love.” Interesting. But as usual, there will be a ton of Beatles tribute acts from all over the world playing hit after hit, film screenings, Beatles karaoke, food, drink, merchandise and lots of family-oriented fun. It all happens Memorial Day weekend at the Belvedere. Don’t forget to wear your Jefferson Starship boots. —Kevin Gibson
