Later on this afternoon I’m going to a live music concert at Younger Than Yesterday Records which starts at 4PM. It’s a tribute to Donovan and it’s called, The Electrical Banana Tribute to Donovan. You can read more about it by clicking here and it’s going to feature a lot of local musicians, all playing Donovan songs. So in the spirit of that, here’s six Donovan links plus some coming MBIP attractions for next week!
The Official Donovan Website
His entire discography, biography, news and more all in on electrical website, quite rightly!
A Donovan smoking gif...kids, don’t try this at home, go outside to a smoking area and then light up, you won’t get into so much trouble that way!
10 Essential Donovan Songs
I have to admit, I never heard numbers 9 and 10 and I’m not sure about 1 and 2, but 3 through 8 are definite classics!
Donovan and The Beatles
How Donovan influenced the Beatles via his guitar picking style.
A List of Donovan Songs
Because everyone loves lists, right?
Donovan’s Favorite Photo
His favorite photo and his friendship with Bob Dylan are discussed in this Sunday Express article.
We’ve got a special Saturday night post tomorrow, because it actually happened in the afternoon and then went on into the evening. The first stop was the last day at Trefzger’s Bakery, which was a little sad, but I’m glad I got to document it and pickup one last order from there. Then it was time to take that order to the Second Annual Sherman Avenue Block Party In West Peoria for the chili cookoff. That will all be on Monday’s post. Tuesday we continue our “A Year In The Life Of A Sandwich Tour” and the place I went to on Friday for this post was closed and I’ve been busy all weekend, so I have to figure out a place to go to tomorrow before work and then put that up on Tuesday. Wednesday will be a post from the aforementioned Donovan show at Younger Than Yesterday, if you want to be part of that post, then simply show up today! I have no idea what I’m going to put up on Thursday but Trefzger’s reopens that day and I’ll have photos from there on Friday. So stay tuned for all of that, I have to get ready for an evening of Donovan right now! We’ll see you all tomorrow!
