Event description

Description

Off The Record is a Birmingham-based music meetup. The event is centered around making time to listening and appreciating music – specifically, an album in full.

It works something like this: people will arrive, grab food/drinks from the lovely bar and café, and then we’ll sit back and listen to an entire album together, followed by a group chat about it – yep, a bit like a book club.

The theme and album

It's the end of the year – this month, we'll be sharing our favourite songs of the year for 2018 in Review. There's no single album this month – instead, we'll be passing the mic and opening it up to the floor to share songs from the albums that you've enjoyed the most this year.

There are also a few Christmas bonuses to look out for, including a return of the much-anticipated (probably) Christmas quiz, a mini chart of everyone's favourite music of the year, and a few other things...

What's this all about?

What’s the point? Why not just listen to it beforehand? Well, half-listening to an album while you’re grappling for a seat on the bus or pretending to work at your desk for the last hour of a Wednesday isn’t the best way to make time for experiencing a record. We want to try to experiment with putting aside time to engage properly with an album, really devote half an hour or so to taking it in, then hearing what other people thought of it. And discovering new stuff that other people really love. That’s the idea.

How much does it cost?

The event is free. The pub does good food so if you fancy some food while you're listening then you're in the right place. Cherry Reds has a brilliant beer selection and does teas and coffees too.
