On the evening's of April 13th & 14th, we will be featuring listening sessions of rare and seldom heard, original 78 RPM records, from the USA and abroad, along with expert discussion, live music, and historic film.

Interspersed between listening to 78's, film, and general clap trap about old recordings and musicians, will be short sets of live music.

Come join us for a night of exceptional music with extraordinary people.
