Mark & Perry’s Listening Salon (no. 5)

Listening Salon No. 5 invite

A couple of times a year my partner, Perry, and I host an audiophile nite. Everyone brings records (and CDs, tapes, iPods, and laptops) and we go round-robin and listen to music, chat and snack. The most recent listening party was Sunday, April 26th. We had 8 guests. 50 songs were played over 4 and a half hours.
Lots of great, fun and provocative music!

Here are some photos. The full playlist is below:
