This season we release our newest album Asphalt Orchestra Plays Pixies: Surfer Rosa, on Cantaloupe Music! Praised by The New York Times as ‘inventive, idiomatic arrangements,” the album pays tribute to the groundbreaking original released in 1988.
In celebration of the release, we will journey to Georgia’s Emory University (September 5) and Oklahoma State (Septmeber 12), performing selections from the album alongside classic band tunes from our first album.

“An iconoclastic 12 piece marching band… part parade spectacle, part halftime show and part cutting-edge contemporary music concert. The playing was coolly brilliant and infectious. And what a scene!”
— Anthony Tommasini, New York Times
