Space is the place for the men of Planetarium. The new indie "supergroup" consists of Sufjan Stevens, The National's Bryce Dessner, Nico Muhly, and James McAlister and their debut self-titled release is due June 9th via 4AD. Taking their inspiration from our marvelous solar system, the songs on Planetarium are all named after different planets, the moon, the sun, a comet, and black holes.

4AD and Amoeba Hollywood are excited to launch (get it?) a very special Planetarium listening event in the Los Angeles area on June 7th, taking place at the John Drescher Planetarium at Santa Monica College. (Similar events are occurring in Seattle and New York City.) To hear the album in this incredible setting, all you have to do is pre-order Planetarium on CD or vinyl in-store only at Amoeba Hollywood starting Monday, June 5th. Fans will receive guaranteed entry into the 6:15pm seating.

Limit one admission per CD/LP purchased, limit two per person.
