Get this: NYC Fab 50 is commemorating the golden anniversary of the Fab Four's stateside arrival with a four-night, four-venue extravaganza. Coincidence? We think not. Each night will feature a combination of heavyweight performers paying tribute to the Beatles, and Beatles tribute bands from around the globe, well, also doing that. Notables include Mary Wilson (of the Supremes) at the Apollo Feb 6; the Spin Doctors and Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra at Hudson Theatre Feb 7; Tommy James and Al Jardine at the Town Hall Feb 8 and Sons of Origin at the Bitter End Feb 9. All shows will benefit the Food Bank for New York City, Autism Think Tank and Children's Music Fund. For more info, visit timeout.com/newyork/things-to-do/beatles.
