A quick look at the Beatles Marathon by the numbers: 10+ musicians, 12 hours, 215 songs.

On Saturday, Dec. 27, singer/guitarist Joe Peppercorn, joined by a sprawling cast of locals (10 are listed on the eventís Facebook page, though additional contributors are expected), brings the fifth annual Beatles Marathon to the Bluestone. The concert, which has become a holiday tradition of sorts, finds the collective gleefully attacking the entirety of the Beatlesí storied catalog in mostly chronological order, starting with the relatively straightforward pop of its 1963 debut Please Please Me and wrapping up well after midnight with the comparatively knotty Abbey Road, which surfaced in 1969.

Tickets are $10 for general admission, or $20 for VIP balcony seating (something that might come in handy around hour 11), and can be purchased at eventbrite.com. Donít miss it.
