About this Event

Sunday March 24, 2019

--

Classic Album Sundays is the world’s most popular album listening experience and allows the listener to hear music contextually, communally, uninterrupted, and in great sonic detail. At our worldwide listening sessions, music fans are able to immerse themselves into an album that has helped shape our culture and in some cases, our lives.We relay the artist and album’s unique story and provide a musical context that gives the listening experience deeper meaning.

We share the experience of hearing the album in its entirety, on vinyl, and on a world-class audiophile hi-fi so that fans can experience the music as close as possible to the artist’s original intention. Classic Album Sundays treats the album (and music in general) with the respect it deserves rather than as a free commodity or aural wallpaper. We remind people what they love about music.

For our March 2019 session we celebrate The Flaming Lips classic "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robot"! The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne is a genius, equal parts Thomas Edison and P.T. Barnum. Like Edison, Coyne is a relentless tinkerer, a visionary experimenteur with a sci-fi fetish and a soft spot for odd technologies. And like Barnum, Coyne is a consummate showman-- the hand puppets, the boombox orchestras, the oddball short films, the radio-controlled headphones. After the one-two punch of 'Zaireeka' and 'The Soft Bulletin', 'Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots' is a bold and inventive work, brimming with ideas and sublime moments of brilliance.
