Asphalt Orchestra Plays the Pixies: Surfer Rosa Newark New Jersey

Asphalt Orchestra returns 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 with new choreography by Jordana Che Toback, discovering a new direction for exhilarating acoustic music by paying tribute to a modern monument.

The band will perform a plaza parade set with Jacob Garchik’s “The Heavens” at 6pm. The program also includes performances by Kronos Quartet with special guests Dan Deacon and Jherek Bischoff, as part of a weeklong celebration KRONOS at 40, co-curated by Lincoln Center and Kronos Quartet.
