Jacob Garchik's The Heavens have the dynamism of gospel band, with the philosophical reflection and abstract refinement of jazz at its most elevated. A choir of brass from tiny slide trumpets to big bold sousaphones, the band will lead a spirited parade dedicated to reason, the laws of science, and the glory of infinity. An alt-marching band born at Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Asphalt Orchestra's members spring from rock, contemporary classical, jazz, and even bhangra backgrounds. After a parade around the plaza, Asphalt will strike up a world-premiere rendition of The Pixies' Surfer Rosa, complete with half time-worthy stage choreography, a gigantic homage to the 20-year-old rock classic.

Venue Description: The world's leading performing arts center and home to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the School of American Ballet.
