Sidewalk Central FREE Outdoor Screening - Re:Generation Music Project (with "Magic City Dreams")

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Re:Generation Music Project follows DJ Premier, Mark Ronson, Skrillex, Pretty Lights, and The Crystal Method as they remix, recreate, and re-imagine five traditional styles of music. From the classical perfection of the Berklee Symphony Orchestra to the bayou jams of New Orleans jazz, five distinctive DJs collaborate with some of the world’s biggest musicians to discover how our musical past is influencing the future.

One of the most interesting elements of the documentary is watching artists like Pretty Lights attempt to explain to legends like Ralph Stanley that he should approach the track like Burl Ives. Aside from the aforementioned musicians, Re:Generation features Martha Reeves, LeeAnn Rimes, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, and all three remaining members of  The Doors .

So, grab a drink and join us in Sidewalk Central for this free special presentation of Re:Generation.
