Asphalt Orchestra returned to Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival on July 28, giving the world premiere of the new project ASPHALT ORCHESTRA PLAYS THE PIXIES: SURFER ROSA, honoring the ground breaking album’s 25th anniversary.

The Pixies released Surfer Rosa – the band’s first full-length record – in 1988. A cult hit then, the album’s influence has grown to mammoth proportions over the years; it is now considered one of the most important recordings of its time.   Asphalt Orchestra takes the originals both literally and inspirationally, discovering a new direction for exhilarating acoustic music by paying tribute to a modern monument.
