AfterFab is the world's only tribute to the solo years of all four Beatles - and this unique concept has fans buzzing. The Beatles' genius didn't stop with "Abbey Road," and AfterFab brings the brilliant solo careers of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, and Starr to life with high energy and high fidelity to the original recordings. Over 70 hit singles and numerous iconic tracks compose one of the best-loved classic-rock canons ever, from "Band on the Run" and "It Don't Come Easy" to "Imagine," "What Is Life" and dozens more. AfterFab has attracted praise from noted Beatles experts and authors such as Robert Rodriguez and Ricardo Pugialli. "They did the solo stuff and *rocked* it!" declared promoter Charles Rosenay following AfterFab's 2014 performance at his Danbury Fields Forever Fab 4 Music Festival. Beatles radio show host Ken Michaels remarked, "Passion. You could see it in their faces. They've really studied the music. And the lead singer, he was outrageous!"

Blue Heron, "one of the Boston music community's indispensables" (Boston Globe), offers another gem from the Peterhouse Partbooks (copied c.1540). This characterful, quirky, and entirely anonymous (and nameless) work was perhaps dedicated to Canterbury's local hero, St. Augustine. Blue Heron's Music Director is Scott Metcalfe.
Whenever possible, the role of an Alzheimer's caregiver should be to maintain positive emotions in the individual affected by Alzheimer's. This should be done by emphasizing the individual's strengths and abilities, rather than dwelling on abilities that have been lost. Known as the "habilitation" model of care, this approach can be used to great effect by those caring for their loved ones at home. This presentation will focus on important issues facing the home caregiver. Topics include making adaptations to the home environment, safety considerations, and taking advantage of community resources.

Metal-ceramics often remains the "state-of-the-art" for complex prosthodontics. The single phase or monolithic all-ceramic materials have become increasingly more popular. These types of dental ceramic materials are dominating the market and future development bringing with it more long-term success. This presentation will provide a look at failure modes and effects in bi-layer all-ceramic crown-cement-tooth systems, tying together the influences on resistance geometry; cement modulus and layer thickness; damage induced by shaping, fabrication, clinical adjustments, and sandblasting; and fatigue in the wet intraoral environment. This presentation will present a collaborative approach to patient care including the management of cases compromised by prosthetic challenges with loss of vertical dimension, periodontal treatment planning decisions regarding when to save the tooth versus place an implant and the challenge of bone reconstruction in preparation for dental implant therapy. Treatment today relies on dental materials that have a proven long-term survival that allows the clinician to develop the most esthetic care. Learning Objectives: to understand interdisciplinary and laboratory treatment sequencing in complex patient care. to understand prosthodontic objectives and how to minimize long-term risk.

It was the kind of bar where nobody nice goes on the kind of street where nobody nice lives, which is probably what made it so cheap, which is definitely what made We Are Scientists take meetings there. Not that Murray & Cain were cheap, but they could do math just fine. If they were sticking a quarter into a video game machine, they'd just as soon the thrills last for more than thirty seconds. Same with buying a lady dinner. Of course it had been a long time since video games or dinner with a lady cost a quarter, and anyway they weren't looking for video games or ladies, except in the deep-down quiet way that men always are. They were looking for a producer.
Murray & Cain, they're the guys who started We Are Scientists 13 years ago. Fresh out of college and bored by their day jobs, they figured rehearsing a rock & roll band would eat up the long slow evenings. Only it backfired, because the band panned out. Now nothing eats up their long slow days, except proving that a busted clock is wrong nearly all the time, and if you watch a pot long enough, eventually it boils.
They ordered two whiskies, no ice, filled to spilling. Those were for Cain. Murray took a squid-looking thing made of plastic tubes from his briefcase and handed five of the six tentacles to the bartender, who attached them to the five closest taps. Murray stuck the free end into his mouth and nodded, and the bartender opened the taps. That's when Chris Coady stepped out of the gloom.
They'd met Coady six years prior. At the time he was a hotshot engineer who'd made his bona fides giving The Yeah Yeah Yeah's and TV on the Radio their signature sound. Now he was one of the best mixers in the game, and had a producer's résumé that reminded you of a perfect hundred dollar bill. It looked so good it had to be fake. Only Coady was for real — Beach House, Wavves, and The Smith Westerns could testify to that.
"Tequila, ice," he said, reading aloud every word on the itty bitty drink menu in his head. "Beer fucks with my sinuses."
They talked. Songs, gear, bands, plus dirty, slanderous gossip. Lots of agreement, with enough "you're fucking crazy"s to keep things interesting. It started to sound like this was the crew for the job. Two months later, they were drinking the same thing, but they were doing it in one of New York City's best small studios, the kind that doesn't come cheap, but gives you a lot more than you paid for. By the end of the year they'd made a record that knew how to throw a punch, but was no slouch in the bedroom, either. A record that gave you the big, wide-angle view, then brought you in for a closer look. It was a We Are Scientists record, and it was a Chris Coady record, and everybody who'd listened to it was having a real hard time staying calm.
A little calm was required, though. It had been a couple years since the band were part of the major label world, with its conveyor belt efficiency — putting out the record would take time. So while the suits set to work finding the right label partner, the band did one of the the only nine or ten things they do really, really well: they recorded some more music. Just a little more music.
A couple of days in their pal Tim Wheeler's studio with his wunderkind partner Claudius Mittendorfer, and five more songs were ready to go — chopped, locked, exported to lossless AAC. But what to do with them? Like greed pooling in the chest of a recently elected politician, it didn't take long for a plan to form. Surfer Blood
Surfer Blood have recently performed at Coachella Festival, released a new video and a Record Store Day album of demos. They are also at work on their third album.
"The band's finely nuanced and understated treatment of the [late 80s / early 90s] era works on Pythons. Aided by Foo Fighters and Pixies producer Gil Norton, Surfer Blood conjure college rock's feeling of youthful, nostalgic melancholy without using any of the sub-genre's gimmicks." – NME, 8/10 rating
