What piece of art changed your life? How did it affect you?
Seeing The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show had a big impact on me. I remember making a cardboard "guitar" shortly after that, and soon convinced my parents to get me a real instrument. Gradually, I taught myself to play well enough to join a band, and I've been playing in bands almost continually since then.
Pioneering indie rockers The Feelies released a string of sublime records in the 1980s (1988's Only Life is a personal favorite) before going on hiatus for 20 years. The band (with original lineup, including guitarists Glenn Mercer and Bill Million, intact) resurfaced in 2011 and released the appropriately-titled Here Before, which embraced the group's legacy and furthered it. Saturday, you can see what all the fuss was about when The Feelies play the Ottobar. Doors open at 8 pm, show starts at 9 pm.
