Event Details



In 2011, Sean Murphy began recording an album in the Sears Crosstown building using only its vast and abandoned spaces to capture and create a one-of-a-kind recording, Sketches of Crosstown. We're pleased to commemorate the record release with a live performance at the building followed by a reception and talk with the artist and his collaborators.

"It has been a long road but I can honestly say that this is the most inspiring musical project on which I've had the pleasure to work."


Record Release Concert & Party


4 pm: Performance at Sears Crosstown Building featuring Sean Murphy, Jim Spake, Jason Northcutt, & The University of Memphis Slide Society.  Tickets include a copy of the limited edition 180 gram vinyl record.  Space is very limited and you must purchase your ticket in advance. Please note, you must be able to climb stairs for the performance.

This will be one of the final opportunities to enter the building before renovation begins in 2014 and the only opportunity to ever hear the building talk live!
6 - 8 pm: Artist Talk, Film Screening of Mary Jane Adams' documentary about the recording of Sketches of Crosstown, and Reception at Crosstown Arts (430 N Cleveland, Memphis, TN, 38104.)  Free and Open to the public.
