Music In Film Series + Panel Discussion
THU APRIL 12 / 7:30 PM
On Thursdays in April, Artisphere celebrates films which capture snapshots of the music industry and provide a glimpse into the lives of musicians.
A panel discussion will follow the movie moderated by Jennifer Vinson of DC Setlist, and featuring panelists Chris Richards (Washington Post), Valerie Paschall (DCist), Aaron Leitko (Pitchfork contributor) and Sarah Godfrey (freelancer).
Cameron Crowe’s film tells the loosely autobiographical story of a high school boy who is given the chance to write a story for Rolling Stone magazine. The screening will be followed by a very special panel discussion on the shifting landscape of music journalism. How have things changed since the barriers to enter music journalism have decreased? In the world of tweets and blogs, is it still possible to make a living writing about music and art?
