What Does A Dive Bar, John Lennon and A String Quartet Have In Common?

No this is not a joke, but an amazing performance of Beatles' "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" by a California based string quartet called  Quartetto Fantastico in a picturesque dive bar in southern California called Footise's. It was part of a celebration of John Lennon's 70th birthday a couple of weeks ago. Quartetto Fantastico features musician Miguel Atwood-Ferguson who has worked with artists like Aloe Blacc, Flying Lotus and others.  He also has done a tribute to J Dilla as part of Mochilla Timeless series.  The Quartetto Fantastico also performed as Dr Dre's string section back in 2006.

Check out the video of the performance below.  What do you think of a string quartet performing in a dive bar? What Milwaukee bar would be the best to see something like that? (via vtech)
