Smithereens to play State Theatre, Falls Church

For the 15th year in a row, The Smithereens will be playing the State Theatre in Falls Church VA on Sat. Jan. 25. Pat DiNizio spoke with the Fairfax Times about his love for the Beatles, and the band’s new Beatles tribute release “The Smithereens Play The Beatles Washington, D.C. February 11, 1964 Concert”.

“We did it with our own vocal style but we played true to the notes,” DiNizio said. “It’s The Smithereens doing The Beatles but not in a ‘Beatle Mania’ way.” -Pat DiNizio
