Asphalt Orchestra returns to (le) poisson rouge on January 12 with its latest radical 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.
Doors 9:30pm; Show Time 10:00pm. More information and tickets here.
