Listening to a Year: 1983

Join Composer and Sound Designer Brendan Connelly for the first of a series of listening hours, each built around the music created in a single year that made a huge impact, broke the barriers, and had something new to say.

For our kick-off party, we’ll be listening to music from 1956. All styles, genres, and cultures–the only thru-line is the year.

$5
Bar Opens at 9pm.
Listening Party Begins at 10pm
