For the Record Music Trivia

Join us for a fun music guessing game on the patio with Bryan O’Connor author of For the Record, My 1,000 Favorite Albums, 1957-2017.

For the Record counts down one amateur music critic’s 1,000 favorite albums, The Beatles and Nina Simone sharing ink with Sleater-Kinney and Viktor Vaughn in a kitchen-sink trip through six decades of radio staples and indie nuggets. Interspersed are essays that explore topics like biases that pervade commercial music rankings, the quantity of great music in different eras, and whether bands really suffer from a sophomore curse. Fans of jazz, classic rock, R&B, punk, indie, hip-hop, electronica, and even country will nod their heads at celebrations of their favorite records and find new music to bolster their collections.
