For once, the good times aren't rolling away. Or, if they did, they're about to roll right back because the children of Rock 'n Roll never grow old. Variety reports that thirty years after the classic, awe-inspiring British rock 'n roll band The Rutles hit NBC with All You Need is Cash, they will be reuniting for an anniversary celebration in Los Angeles as part of the Mods and Rockers Festival.

According to the fest website, the festivities will be held on March 17, at the American Cinematheque's Egyptian Theatre. Yes, that means Eric Idle, Neil Innes, Ricky Fataar, and John Halsey will be coming together for the celebration in Los Angeles, and I wonder if they will don the bowl-cuts again (one can only hope!) or if they will go for a later Beatles shagginess? Whatever the case, there will be a screening of the original '70s film, Rutles rareties (like footage of the band from SNL), highlights from the sequel film, and a Q&A.

You might notice that I didn't mention a performance. It's not a part of the listed plan, but they do say: "And the evening may also feature a couple of musical surprises!" I'd hope so! Tickets are available now, and you can find links through the fest website.

In the meantime, catch an old clip from the flick after the jump.
