Asphalt Orchestra brings its latest radical performance Asphalt Orchestra Plays the Pixies: Surfer Rosa (honoring the groundbreaking album’s 25th anniversary) to the Pixies’ tour itself! We hit the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY on January 19 (watch a video of the fun here) and will arrive at NJPAC in Newark, NJ on January 28 for popup sets before the Pixies take the stage.
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.
