SATELLITE PARADISO

SATELLITE PARADISO




 

John Ashton has been a musical icon since the punk era, when his band, the Psychedelic Furs, became hitmakers as well as critical darlings, and one song, "Pretty in Pink," transcended even the world of pop music to become a generation's mantra.

logo satelliteHe has remained in the music business, not only playing reunion tours with the Furs, but becoming one of rock's most respected producers, and continuing to make his own music, culminating in his new band, Satellite Paradiso.

With 30 years in the music business to draw on, Ashton has assembled an all-star group to create what one reviewer has described as "a swaggering wall of sound." It's music that has to be heard, and cries out to be danced to.
A neighbor and good friend of Opus 40, John is bringing his music to our traditional Labor Day weekend concert. Advance tickets are available now through the link on this page. Tickets will be $20 in advance, $25 at the gate. A special discount on advance tickets for Friends of Opus 40: $15. If you are a member and want to reserver at this special price, call us.

The concert begins at 5 pm, gates open at 4.

Washington Square at Opus 40

 

This is what Washington Square in Greenwich Village looked like on a Sunday morning in the 50s and 60s -- just a bunch of folks bringing guitars and banjos, joining together in impromptu jam sessions, or gathering around and lending their voices to a favorite song. New York's proper Parks Commissioner, Newbold Morris, described them as people who "come from miles away to display the most terrible costumes, haircuts, etc. and who play bongo drums and other weird instruments, attracting a weird public."

Well, people still love to play weird instruments, wear terrible costumes, and get together to make music. So Opus 40 is recreating those Washington Square days on the first Sunday of each month throughout the summer. Admission is free to anyone who brings an acoustic instrument.
