Join CHIRP at Classic Album Sundays feat. Massive Attack’s Mezzanine

RSVP to this event Buy tickets to this event

Saturday Audio Exchange
1021 W. Belmont Avenue
Chicago, IL 60657
(773) 935-4434

Classic Album Sundays is an immersive album listening experience that builds the community of music lovers and CHIRP is proud to co-sponsor the series in Chicago.

On Sunday, July 24th, CAS is setting up shop at Saturday Audio Exchange to expose your ears to an aural darkness you've never heard before: Massive Attack's 1998 classic Mezzanine

The predator that lurks on the cover of the album perfectly represents the moods locked in the album; it’s in-your-face, confusing, demonic, and eerie. It startling at times and soothing at others. Fear is a difficult emotion to surface from the grooves of a vinyl record because it lacks a visual— the discomfort you experience while listening can only be crafted with the help of your imagination. Massive Attack makes you think about what you would see onscreen during a Tobe Hooper or Alfred Hitchcock film. 

Saturday Audio Exchange will be providing a custom-curated hi-fi audio system to make this experience come to life on vinyl. In attending the event, you will listen to the album as if you are watching a movie- no phones, no distractions, and complete focus on the beauty engrained in Mezzanine. The event starts with a vinyl-exclusive playlist of artists that influenced and have been influenced by Massive Attack. Attendees should take this warm up time to take a look around, visit with event partners, socialize with new and old friends, and drink beverages. When we have a full house, we will give attendees a ten minute warning to use to the bathroom and make any phone calls before the album starts. Then, CAS Chicago organizer Sam Willett will introduce the album drop the needle. From there, your mind should be completely involved with the album and prepared for a musical adventure.

More information, including a pre-album playlist, event recaps, and an online community of audiophiles, can be found at classicalbumsundays.com or the Classic Album Sundays Facebook page.
