Bellwether, 594 Union Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
Tickets can be purchased here. http://casnycjoydivision.eventbrite.com/
Classic Album Sundays will present the critically acclaimed debut of Joy Division, “Unknown Pleasures”. This is the place to start with the Joy Division story as this album was recorded shortly after the new formation rose out of the ashes of Warsaw.
Join us at 5 pm for the musical lead-up which will include Joy Division’s musical contemporaries as well as their inspirations like the Sex Pistols (Sumner and Hook attended their gig a few years before). DJ / Musicologist Ron Like Hell will present the album and will relay the story behind its making as well as the significance of producer Martin Hannett – an essential part of the tale.
At 7 pm the lights go down, the volume goes up and we play the album from beginning to end on vinyl on our audiophile hi-fi. The audio menu will include a Rega Apheta MC Cartridge, a Rega P9 Turntable, a Moon 310 LP Phono Preamp, a Moon P7 Line Preamp, Cardas balanced cabling, a Mark Levinson No 334 Power Amp and 4 Klipschorns. Come early for the oysters! Stay late for dinner!
Tickets are $10 on the door and $10 + service charge here (http://casnycjoydivision.eventbrite.com/). We suggest you purchase tickets in advance as we do sell out.
Doors close at 6:45 or when we reach full capacity but we suggest you get there as early as possible to enjoy the entire experience. Listening guidelines apply.
