Catch Television on Tour in the Fall; Seminal 1977 LP ‘Marquee Moon’ Turns 40 This Year

Written by: Rock Cellar Magazine Staff

In 1977, Television released its debut album, Marquee Moon, a record that put the band on the map in the competitive New York music scene. In the decades since, its profile continued to rise to where it is today, one of the most highly regarded of its era.

Listening to the dynamic, innovative record today, it’s obvious just now influential Television’s sound was at the time.

This fall, the band — Tom Verlaine, Billy Ficca, Fred Smith and Jimmy Rip — have a handful of West Coast tour dates on the schedule, and needless to say they’re of the can’t-miss variety. The dates:

Sept. 24 — Portland, Or. — Aladdin Theater

Sept. 25 — Seattle, WA — Neptune

Sept. 27 — Sonoma, CA  — Gundlach Bundschu Winery: Old Redwood Barn

Sept. 29 — Los Angeles, CA  — Teragram Ballroom

Sept. 30 — Los Angeles, CA  — Teragram Ballroom
