Very few of us get two chances in life.

But you're about to get them.  Mop Top Festival closes this weekend, and tickets are truly going fast.  We're about at half-capacity already in ticket sales, and it's only Wednesday.  That means these two closing shows will likely be HOT.  Plenty of bits. And who doesn't love a good bit? I personally could watch great bits for hours upon end -- as long as they're funny.  The bits here are quite great.  

My new favorite scene is the flea market, when Lydia overwhelms the snarky record vendor with her sense of smell in order to get Tommy his coveted "The Chipmunks Sing The Beatles".  Fantastic.  A close second is when Shuey fires the audience member who answered "None of them" when asked to name his favorite Beatle.   And, of course, the "Sexy Sadie" song scene remains a staple, as does the line, "Speaking of the Beatles,I need to drink more liquor."

I'll be sad when this show closes, but as always we have another great one to take its place.  Come on out -- an impromptu jam session will follow closing night!  (And of course, we have strike the following day at 11 a.m.)
