Cashbah and Aintree

January 18,1961

The Beatles play another gig on the 15th at the Casbah.  Probably more of a practice really, since they have really risen above playing a basement coffee bar, but isn't is fun to imagine what it must have been like to have  heard  them in that cramped space at the top of their rave-up game.

On the 18th they return to the Aintree Institute.  We have on good authority they were paid 8 and a half pounds sterling for this gig.  They must have felt like they were really making it, now.  Little did they know!
