Welcome rocker nation to a brand new 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.
This week’s panel includes Consequence of Sound Associate Editor Sasha Geffen, Max Goldstein of Yoko and the Oh No’s, and Lucas Olson of The Walters. In light of David Letterman’s retirement, we begin by looking back at our favorite memories from the last three decades. We also discuss what non-music services we’d like to see added to music festivals, and play a game of Who Said It: Kanye West or Brandon Flowers?
Also, Kevin Kellam hits the streets of Chicago to ask people what they’ll be listening to this summer, and we introduce a brand new segment, Rap Lyrics with Miss Staskel, where Chicago’s greatest teacher breaks down hip-hop lyrics that you might not be too familiar with.
