Thanks to everyone who made PitchYrCulture Mix #1 so successful with Culture Club's large, appreciative audience and fantastic presentations by our 7 presenters.
And now . . . ! We'd like to announce our next program at Videotage on November 11(with more details to follow), with (at this time) opening acts and side events including musician Yanyan Pang and a mini-store of vintage vinyl records organized by the legendary Paul of Paul's Records in Sham Shui Po.
Here's how PitchYrCulture works - at each event we have a theme. Of course the presenter is free to interpret the theme as they see fit (we all have our own, highly personalized musical histories). Listed below is the thematic format for the first three PitchYrCultures:
Before-it-All – Friday, September 16, 8pm, at Culture Club
Do you remember the first song that made an impression on you or meant something to you, when you were really young, before you started to care what other people liked, what other people thought of you? Before you needed to be cool or fit in and before you knew where ‘in’ was?
Into-It-All – Friday, November 11, 8pm, at Videotage
After you had worked through a few different styles, you went your own way – you rebelled. Your musical choices made a conscious statement about who you were and who you wanted to be. Posted to your parents, teachers, friends and peers, your statement was subtly or overtly against the world!
Over-It-All – venue/date to be announced
And finally, you’d either seen it all (or you thought you had) and you started to become disillusioned with what was ‘out there’. You might have even dug out some of your old favourites and felt disbelief at your old tastes! Or did that journey through your archives make you embrace the past – over the present – taking you further away from current musical trends?
Hope to see you on November 11
