The Little Theatre is ready to party like it’s 1929!

The newly renovated Little Theatre marquee will reclaim its place as one of Rochester’s visual landmarks on Monday, June 12, with a Marquee Relighting Block Party. The street celebration begins outside The Little (240 East Ave.) at 6:30 p.m. and the relighting presentation begins at 8:30 p.m.

After a brief set of presentations at 8:30 p.m., the new marquee will be switched on for the first time at dusk.

For decades, The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has ranked highly on many All-Time Best Album lists. Celebrated as the first quasi-concept album in rock, fans and critics have long lauded the songcraft, the pioneering production sounds, and its colorful, now iconic, cover art. Some say it both reflected and drove the burgeoning youth culture through the "Summer of Love" in 1967. In more recent years, some critics have tried to cut through the mythology of the album and reconsider it in every way.

Greg Townson has played his share of instrumental music since the mid-1980’s; Outfits such as the Essentials, Salamanders, and Hi-Risers have been privy to Greg’s musical talent. He’s also produced an album by Swiss roots-rockers Hillbilly Moon Explosion back in 2011, and is currently co- guitarist with Eddie Angel in Los Straitjackets, who have just completed an album backing the one and only Nick Lowe. Greg’s third LP, “Travelin’ Guitar” was released last week on the Greg’s own label, 2-Bit records.

You know The Little Theater as the area's premier cultural center for the presentation of American and foreign independent films, along with discussions and educational activities. However, The Little is also a musical hotspot most nights of the week with a variety of artists of different genres performing in The Little Cafe.
