Join us from 5.30pm to get in the mood by listening to some of the music that inspired Lou Reed, along with tracks from his musical contemporaries around the release of the album in 1972. The bar will be open, and you can grab some lunch/dinner beforehand at Chinaski’s next door, to ease yourself in, and then hang out with a great soundtrack.
At 7.30pm the lights go down, the volume goes up and we play the album from beginning to end on a reference Linn hi-fi system. We’ll be using Linn’s iconic Sondek LP12 turntable with a reference Klimax Kontrol pre-amplifier and Linn’s very own “black ops” custom made fully active PA system featuring 12 channels of their Akurate power amplifiers.
Listening to “Transformer” on a fabulous hi-fi system will let you hear it as never before; taking you closer to the performance.
We should have brand new copies of the Music On Vinyl reissue for sale on the night too.
More events at Loud + Clear
There will be sessions at 10:00, 12:00 and 14:00.
