AUGUST LN resized

If you have yet to see the spectacular show Liner Notes, here’s your chance! Liner Notes returns to the Atlas here in DC for its second season with Volume 1: The Award Tour. A live musical journey through hip hop’s many intersections, Liner Notes alludes to the booklet that usually came with the purchase of a music vinyl, CD, or cassette that included lyrics and information about the music we listened to. In an age of mp3’s and digital downloads, artist and creator, Paige Hernandez, seeks to bring the experience of liner notes back in a live, musical, poetic, and fun production.

Even if you’ve been lucky enough to have enjoyed the show in the past, I encourage to come out as each show is unique with a different focus. This installment explores the cast’s personal musical and artistic inspirations that take the audience on a journey from Chaka Khan as a Black Panther to the induction of the Sugar Hill Gang into the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress. “Each show is jammed packed with over 40 songs, original poetry and actual liner notes from a multitude of albums,” Hernandez exclaims. “We are all eager to bring you a show that is thrilling, seamless and that exceeds expectations for the price of admission.” Joining Paige Hernandez on stage will be actor, educator and lyricist, Baye Harrell, jazz vocalist, Akua Aldrich, with The Corner Store Jazz Quintet featuring Kristopher Funn.

 

Tickets are on sale now for this Friday, August 2nd and Saturday, August 3rd. Purchase tickets to Liner Notes.
