ATL Collective creates musical events that seek to replicate the intimate experience of listening to an album for the first time, going track by track, reading through the liner notes and turning over the record, truly enjoying the music for what it is, without distractions. Each month, the ATL Collective picks a classic album and collectively covers the track list in sequence – many times completing the event with themed refreshments for attendees.
The Stranger is the fifth studio album by Billy Joel but his first critical and commercial breakthrough as it spent six weeks at number 2 on the US albums chart. Considered his magnum opus, it remains his best-selling non-compilation album to date, and was ranked number 70 on Rolling Stone’s list of 500 greatest albums of all time.
Visiting artist Jacob Jeffries will be joining us for both shows: 7:00 and 10:00 PM. $20 advance, $25 door.
