OK, I have to admit it — I’m a Baby Boomer writing for a newspaper with readers young enough to be my children. So that means I remember music and fashion from the 1960s … when I was in high school. For all you cultural historians not old enough to have lived through that era, you can do your own research at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts (4990 Glenway Ave., Covedale) during its presentation of Shout! The Mod Musical. The publicity says its about “five groovy gals as they come of age during the days that made England swing.” Pop rhythms were around every corner (not to mention on everyone’s turntable) as we bought 45s that featured Petula Clark, Dusty Springfield and Lulu. If those names don’t mean much to you, maybe you’ll know the tunes, including “Downtown,” “The Look of Love,” “Alfie,” “These Boots Are Made for Walking” and “Goldfinger.” And if you don’t know them, well, head to Cincinnati’s West Side and get acquainted — with miniskirts and psychedelia. Through March 13.
