Musical Movie Fun!
"Musically Speaking:" free screening of Before the Music Dies tonight at the Antenna Gallery (3718 St. Claude Ave.) at 7:00 pm - Featuring interviews from Bonnie Raitt, Erykah Badu, Eric Clapton, Branford Marsalis, Dave Matthews, Les Paul, Elvis Costello, and more, this documentary takes a critical look at the increasing commercialization of music over the past three decades. Using historic footage, the film looks at the evolution of American music and the artists who created it, and attempts to expose the current state of American popular music. "The reality is that superficiality is in," says Marsalis. "And depth and quality is kind of out." (2006, 93 min.)
**MUSICALLY SPEAKING is a series of music-themed movie and documentary screenings, curated/hosted by DJ Soul Sister, and co-presented by Press Street, Charitable Film Network, WWOZ FM, and the N.O. African American Museum. Free admission and refreshments. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
