On October 30, 1938, The Orson Welles Mercury Theatre broadcast H.G. Wells’ classic tale of interplanetary battle with War of the Worlds and stunned the nation as many who heard it were convinced that a real invasion was taking place. It was one of the first times that the power of radio was on full display, and it resulted in new regulations about what and how news could be presented on the public airwaves. On October 31, 2013, the Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA, will commemorate the 75th anniversary with a live theatre event recreating one of the most famous radio plays ever produced.

One of the original British Invasion bands (and one of the best), The Zombies performed (and sold-out) at the wonderfully renovated Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA on July 7, 2013. Lead singer Colin Blunstone revealed the age of the band on stage and it was amazing as The Zombies are in as great form now as they were during their early hit making days... it was great to see then in a venue more fitting for one of the coolest quintets of all time.

Thankfully, it turned out that the current incarnation of this initially short-lived British Invasion band was undead in the sense of being very much alive... the 90-minute set peaked with five choice cuts from 1968’s Odessey and Oracle, one of those albums that nobody bought when it was released but that nowadays better be in every record collection along with Something Else by The Kinks, Love’s Forever Changes, and Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake by The Small Faces.
