Taking their name after the Bambi Cinema where the Beatles stayed after playing their first gigs in Hamburg, Germany, Bambi Kino, an indie rock super group of sorts that features Mark Rozzo (Maplewood), Ira Elliot (Nada Surf), Doug Gillard (Ex-Guided By Voices), Erik Paparazzi (Cat Power) — formed in 2010 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Beatles concerts in Hamburg, Germany. The year it formed, the group played the Hamburg Club where the Beatles got their start. The group even played the same songs the Beatles played in their set.

Earlier this year, they performed in New York to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles arrival in America. Now, they’re taking the show on the road. They play the Beachland Ballroom on Sept. 13 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four’s Cleveland appearance at Public Hall on Sept. 15, 1964. Gillard (Death of Samantha, Gem, Guided By Voices), is a former Clevelander who regularly comes back to town to perform. The concert takes place in conjunction with a special fall photography show at Space:ROCK Gallery of work by George Shuba, who photographed the Beatles in Cleveland when they played her 50 years ago. Tickets are $15.
