ANN ARBOR, Michigan - The Ark presents An Evening with Roger McGuinn , Saturday, May 16 at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor. Show time is 8:00 pm.
A founding member of the pioneering 1960's folk-rock band, The Byrds , Roger McGuinn was inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991, along with fellow band members David Crosby and Chris Hillman.
His distinguished vocals and rich, melodic guitar style turned songs like "Turn Turn Turn," "Eight Miles High" and "Mr. Tambourine Man" into Top Ten hits and cemented his place in rock and roll history.
The Byrds combined the melodic, upbeat pop of the Beatles with the message-oriented lyrics of Bob Dylan to create a new amalgam that would become known as folk-rock. They, in turn, served as a huge influence on the Eagles, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and later R.E.M.

Notorious UK82 Punk Favorites, Anti-Nowhere League, Revisit Their Classic Debut Album!
We Are The League…Uncut! Contains Their Most Popular Anthems Including “I Hate People,” “For You” & Metallica’s Favorite “So What” As Well As Bonus Cuts!
Los Angeles, CA - Anti-Nowhere League will cap off a triumphant 2014 of touring with the release of an LP containing newly recorded versions of their debut album We Are The League. Never heard before, the complete We Are The League album using the original lyrics will be released by Cleopatra Records on October 28. This new release recreates exactly how the album was written before being confiscated, and has never been put together in its entirety since 1982 including the infamous “So What”.
Formed in Turnbridge Wells, England in 1980, Anti-Nowhere League roared to underground popularity with the 1981 release of their debut single, a cover of Ralph McTell’s “Streets of London”, (dragged through the gutter in fine style, of course) backed with “So What”, a track deemed so offensive by the Metropolitan Police's Obscene Publication Squad, that the record distributor’s warehouse was raided and all copies were seized. The League managed to recover from the heavy censoring hand of the law and release their debut LP We Are The League, the next year, although minus “So What” as well as the original lyrics of “Animal” and other tracks.
As lead singer Animal states, “This recording is a lyrical journey through the 80’s, re-recorded in the 21st century using the very original lyrics that the law tried to stop. We didn’t participate in being nice….we wanted nothing from greed and gluttony except to point a middle finger or two at how absurd the country had become”.
Now with a tight, road tested, solid lineup, these songs are given a true presentation as they were intended. All other versions have been rehashed! This is ... WE ARE THE LEAGUE UN-CUT!
