No, it was a Beatles show.

One of the great days in musical history!

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney

Dumb article. As far I as I know, nobody has ever framed the meeting as a "coincidence", and it's no less significant a summit for being entirely planned, anyways.

To be honest, I had a long working day (left the office at 8) and was too tired to do much more than watch "Mad Men" DVDs for a few hours. I don't think I would've even made it to the liquor store before it closed at 9 had I tried! Just before midnight, I ritually inhaled a single token lungful of the dread smoke, (uh, DON'T DO DRUGS, KIDS!) and symbolically played a few period-specific Beatles tracks (their first few post-pot recordings), then considered playing some Bob but wasn't in the mood, so I played Cecil Taylor's "Steps" instead. (It has nothing to do with Bob or the Beatles and is in fact from 1966 (whatta great year!) but is awesome.) Then I went back to my DVDs until bedtime. The end.

I figure between 1964 Beatles, fictional 1960 Manhattan ad-men, and 1966 avant-garde jazz, I got a reasonable dose of 1960s nostalgia.
