Welcome, rocker nation, to the newest episode of Rock it Out! Blog. Every Friday, host Sami Jarroush rounds together an esteemed panel of critics, musicians, and comedians to discuss the week’s biggest headlines live from our new set at JBTV in downtown Chicago.
This week, Sami invites the hosts of Listening Party, Masterpiece Reviews, and Music at the Movies. Consequence of Sound Associate Editor Sasha Geffen, Senior Staff Writer Nick Freed, and Senior Staff Writer Leah Pickett discuss the World Health Organization’s recent report warning that 1.1 billion people are at risk of hearing loss due to usage of MP3 players and loud concerts. They also talk about Wu-Tang Clan’s marketing ploy of releasing only one copy of their new album, and whether or not Mumford and Sons going electric on their new record is a good thing.
We also head to Kuma’s Corner in Chicago for a closer look at their heavy metal burger of the month for March, and comedian Kevin Kellam takes to the streets to find out what the people think of Mumford and Sons going electric.
