    To celebrate 30 years since R.E.M.'s first landmark full-length record, R.E.M. tribute band Chronic Town will play R.E.M.'s album Murmur in its entirety. Radio Free Europe, Sitting Still, Pilgrimage, Talk About the Passion, and other classic R.E.M. tunes. Chronic Town is joined by Gang of Four tribute Gang of Forty to kick things off, and B-52s tribute Private Idaho closes the night with great Athens, GA party music. It's a great night of 80's alternative rock and dance music in the heart of the Mission! ___________________________________ From All Music: "Even though it is firmly in the tradition of American folk-rock, post-punk, and garage rock, Murmur sounds as if it appeared out of nowhere, without any ties to the past, present, or future. Part of the distinctiveness lies in the atmospheric production, which exudes a detached sense of mystery, but it also comes from the remarkably accomplished songwriting. The songs on Murmur sound as if they've existed forever, yet they subvert folk and pop conventions by taking unpredictable twists and turns into melodic, evocative territory, whether it's the measured riffs of "Pilgrimage," the melancholic "Talk About the Passion," or the winding guitars and pianos of "Perfect Circle."
