Amoeba is sponsoring THE DROP with Circa Zero, featuring Andy Summers of The Police, at The GRAMMY Museum March 26 at 8 p.m. 

The event will feature an intimate discussion and performance from the duo, made up of Summers and multi-instrumentalist Rob Giles. Tickets are $25 and are available here.

The event will celebrate the release of Circa Zero’s debut album, Circus Hero (preorder on LP or CD), out March 25 on 429 Records.

The band started after The Police reunion tour of 2008. Summers, who has released many solo albums and had just played on the third highest-grossing tour of all time, was looking for a new project. He saw Giles’ band The Rescues play a few years back at The Troubador and knew he’d met his new musical partner. Circus Hero features 13 tracks of high-energy pop rock, fueled by Summers’ trademark, stuttering riffs and Giles’ soaring vocals, which do bear some resemblance to those of Sting.
