First Meetup A Success at Tellus 360
With this being the inaugural meetup for Listen Lancaster, I chose a location familiar to most locals, but easy for anyone to find. Tellus 360 has created a new room dubbed “An Sibin”. Translated from Gaelic means Speakeasy described in the dictionary as a saloon or nightclub selling alcoholic beverages illegally, especially during Prohibition. This unique room (formerly a recording studio) lives in the lower level of Tellus and has fantastic acoustic properties. With this being the first go around, I set up an audio system that matched the acoustics and dynamics of the room and curated a selection of mostly vinyl. The theme of this gathering was in celebration of the genre of Prog-Rock. Guests were entertained with a wide range of material, with a lot 180/200 gram vinyl of remastered classics. Think of legends like Emerson Lake and Palmer, Genesis, Renaissance, Gentle Giant, Jethro Tull, Yes, Rush etc.. The evening was full of great conversation and a lot of prog rock disciples shared there knowledge!
