Velaslavasay Panorama Event Meetup

Join LAAC for an informal meetup at the Velaslavasay Panorama on Saturday, January 30th at 7pm. We'll be attending their event In India - 1903 to 1949: The 78rpm Phenomenon, an illustrated lecture with Robert Millis featuring musical demonstrations by Jonathan Ward.unnamed

From the event description: The lecture is a result of Millis' year spent in India photographing record collections, interviewing collectors, and visiting archives and record markets: photographs of shelves groaning under the weight of unimaginable titles, beautiful label and sleeve designs from long gone eras, wind up talking machines, crammed antique shops, forgotten artists, and more that somehow survived the difficult "archival" issues of India.

This presentation will feature several short Sublime Frequencies films, rare music from 78rpm discs, glimpses of the city of Calcutta, the shellac industry, and 78rpm record collectors.

Tickets are $15 or $12 for VPES Members. No need to RSVP to LAAC.
