School of Rock Portland students perform 2 classic albums in one evening!
First will be Let it Be; the final Beatles album release just months after the band broke up. Returning to an ensemble approach of playing and less overdubs and studio tricks. Let it Be was Paul McCartney's last attempt to get the band into playing live again. This is a fantastic rock album featuring gems like Let it Be, Dig a Pony, Across the Universe and Get Back.
Then School of Rock is proudly performing XO by Elliott Smith, one of the greatest songwriters of our generation and local hero. Fresh off the heels of his breakout album Either /Or, Elliott Smith made the move to his first major label release with XO in 1998. Thanks to the production and producing direction of Jon Brion, XO is a sonic and song writing masterpiece featuring songs like Waltz #2 and Baby Britain. XO is considered one of the greatest albums of the 90's and is sure to be a magical journey to see performed by SoR!http://www.holocene.org/event/1610595/
