Celebrate the Library’s summer reading theme ‘Libraries Rock’, and enter the world of music as Jeff Payton discusses and plays some of the seminal albums of progressive rock.
First up in this proposed series is Rush’s fourth album, 2112, from 1976. A futuristic take on individuality in an unbending, mechanized society, this ‘storytelling’ music is alternately hard and soft, violent and gentle, tragic and uplifting. And the three musicians’ abilities are impeccable—among the best at their respective instruments at the time, and maybe of all time.
Enjoy the immersive experience (both aural and visual) of this music from beginning to end and contribute to the discussion of the album, its cover art, trivia, and the album’s artistic impact. Whether you attend to just enjoy the music, or to participate in the discussion and relate your experiences of the album, the evening should prove to be an enjoyable experience.
Come and enjoy this fantastic album with us.
