Asphalt Plays Pixies: Fall Tour

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

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.
