Local country show
Country-music duo Big & Rich (named after its members, Big Kenny and John Rich) will play a show in the suburbs this weekend. The group released a new single, "Look at You," earlier this year. It is slated to appear on a forthcoming studio album, the band's fifth.
As part of the ongoing celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' appearance on American television, the Arcada Theatre is hosting a special singalong screening of "A Hard Day's Night," the classic and influential musical film from the Beatles and filmmaker Richard Lester. The event will include a preshow concert by the Ralleys and other activities.
3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23, at the Arcada Theatre, 105 E. Main St., St. Charles. $15, $25. Go to oshows.com.
