KSLU is hosting a screening of Before the Music Dies this Thursday (April 3) at 6 p.m. in Fitzgerald Hall 122 (located on SLU's campus off of Lindell). Following will be a panel discussion featuring Annie Zaleski from the RFT and Nico Leone from KDHX.

Oh hey, that's me. Yeah. The movie's about one of my favorite things to talk about: the crumbling of the music industry. IMDB describes it thusly:

With outstanding performances and revealing interviews Before the Music Dies takes a critical look at the homogenization of popular music with commentary by some of the industry's biggest talents like Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews, Elvis Costello, Erykah Badu, Branford Marsalis, Bonnie Raitt and more. Using historic footage the film looks at the evolution of American music and the artists who created it and pulls back the curtain (in a very creative way) to expose the sad truth behind today's "artificial" music stars.

Russell Hall is at 3500 Lindell Boulevard, or the south side of Lindell, between Grand and Compton (second building on the right if turning right onto Lindell from Grand).

I'm DJing later after that at the Halo Bar from 10:30 p.m. till close. That's me, DJ A to Z. Should be good times.
