Just a friendly reminder that Album Club meets today at 6 p.m. at the Link Centre.
Album Club is something I started more than two years ago. It's like a book club, but with music: we pick one record a month, give it a listen and then get together to discuss it.
Some months we all bring an album to share, but most months we try to pick just one record. This month's is "Graceland" by Paul Simon (no, we didn't plan the Graceland/Elvis death date connection; it just happened).
We try to choose albums that are brand new, albums we wouldn't typically listen to or albums we've always wanted to hear but haven't. Past selections include "Rumours" by Fleetwood Mac; "Boys & Girls" by the Alabama Shakes; "Mellon Collie & the Infinite Sadness" by the Smashing Pumpkins; "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green; "Thriller" by Michael Jackson; and "London Calling" by the Clash. We've also had more educational months, where Album Club members or guests presented info on Christian and Muslim hardcore punk or an in-depth look at their favorite artist.
Album Club is completely free. We have lots of food and lots of good music talk, so anyone who loves music is welcome.
Come on down tonight to the Link Centre and help us dissect Paul Simon's "Graceland."
ps. Album Club is on Facebook! Just search for North Mississippi Album Club.
