Classic Album Sundays presents Talking Heads "Remain in Light".
Talking Heads' "Remain in Light" saw the band melding African polyrhythms, music-making methodologies and mythologies, with their own distinctive funk-rock. They attempted to collaborate more as a band, jamming long instrumental sections which producer Brian Eno would then loop and use to further spur the creative process. The album is also a great time capsule of downtown New York City circa 1980 uniting the dance music, new wave, hip hop and experimental music scenes.
Join us at 5 pm to listen to music that either inspired or was relevant to this LP such as Fela Kuti, Funkadelic, Sly & Robbie and Brian Eno. Order some food and grab a beer from Meadhall's extensive beer selection. Meadhall is a 100 tap beer bar with high end craft beer and Belgian-American style food.
