Punk Out: If You Wish, If You Can!

Thursday / March 3, 2011 / 5:00 p.m.
Berklee Media Lab
150 Massachusetts Avenue
United States

Punk is all about keeping it short, so this two-hour event will get straight to the point in exploring the genre. Berklee associate professor Mirek Kocandrle, author of Pop/Rock: Sounds and Vibes of the 20th Century, and Marci Cohen, music journalist and Berklee librarian, will give a multimedia presentation on punk's musical and social roots and manifestations, from the garage rock of the '60s, to its peak in the '70s, to its ongoing influence. Come ready to question the authorities.
