Rock Hall Buries Some Shit in Celebration of John Lennon's 70th Birthday

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will mark what would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday by burying a time capsule on October 8.

Actually, the Rock Hall is storing the time capsule — which will be filled with a bunch of the Beatle's solo albums and some other stuff — in its Library and Archives.

The time capsule dedication kicks off a John Lennon weekend at the Rock Hall at 10:30 a.m. Throughout the weekend, footage from the Beatles' and Lennon's posthumous inductions into the HOF will screen in the museum's theater.

At 11:30 a.m. on Friday, an expert will talk about Lennon's artifacts that are part of the Rock Hall's Beatles exhibit.

At noon on Sunday, the Imagine Peace World Festival takes place, featuring a bunch of live music.

There's also going to be a big-ass "peace card" in the Rock Hall's lobby all weekend for fans to sign. The card will be sent to Lennon's family, who'll probably utter a couple of "WTF?"s after they find a ginormous envelope stuffed in their mailbox.

The capsule will be opened on October 9, 2040, presumably by space aliens who'll wonder what the hell they're listening to after they put Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins on their uPods or whatever they're using in the future. —Michael Gallucci
