Jon Oulman presents:
The Listening Room

Vinyl and High-Fidelity enthusiasts converge for an evening’s-worth of full album playlists. At the beginning of each week a guest curator and playlist will be announced with detailed “liner notes” explaining that week’s theme. Each week will be paired with a custom drink special.

Bring your ears. Bring a friend.

If you are interested in curating your own custom LP set or know someone who should, contact Jon Oulman Presents.
