Seattle Music Class, 10/9/12

Posted: October 8, 2012 in The Strangest Tribe: the College Course

Tomorrow, we will begin our exploration of American music communities contemporary to ’80s Seattle. I wanted this course to be more than just about my book (as wonderful as it is, of course).

Tuesday, October 9

Topic: Other 1980s American music scenes: early ’80s Boston and Minneapolis.

Text: Azerrad, Our Band Could Be Your Life: chapters 3, 5, and 6.

Music: Mission of Burma: “Einstein’s Day;” Husker Du: “Chartered Trips,” “Celebrated Summer”; the Replacements: “Waitress in the Sky.”  Feel free to listen to anything else from the following records: Husker Du’s Zen Arcade and The Replacements’ Tim and Let It Be.
