The Beatles aren't the only 50th anniversary celebration in town this season.

For 10 years beginning in 1964, Flick Coffee House near the University of Miami, was a training ground for folk musicians including Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Buffett, David Crosby, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dion, John Sebastian and Tom Rush.

Comic Gabe Kaplan ( Welcome Back Kotter) has gathered musician pals and comedians to pay tribute to the hangout at a two-night concert fest March 28-29 at the venue now in the old Flick space, Titanic Pub and Brewery, 5813 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Coral Gables.

Booked so far: folk singers Chuck Mitchell (who gave his surname to then-wife Joni) and Grove mainstay Bobby Ingram and singer-songwriters Vince Martin, Estrella Berosini, Michael Smith and Barbara Barrow. Kaplan also will perform.

Tickets are $40 and $25 at the bar, with a limit of 100. Information at
