30 seconds over to Oak Park: Pezband singer returns

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

OK, forget the Beatles and iTunes and all that. Let's move on to the Beatlesque ...

Power-pop fans can get back to where they once belonged -- in Oak Park tomorrow for an in-store by Mimi Betinis, the guy who lead long-gone local heroes Pezband. Betinis has a new album, "All That Glitters," full of Apple Records melodies and Badfinger chords. (Listen to the lead single, "Love Is a Thin Veneer," here.)

He'll break from his day gig as an art teacher for Chicago Public Schools to celebrate the CD's release and play a few tunes at 7 p.m. Friday at Val's Halla Records, 239 W. Harrison St. in Oak Park.
