Some of the most engaging conversations I’ve had about music, culture and nostalgia have been with local area DJ’s. When The Anderson Street Project asked my husband and me to document a roundtable event with prominent DJ’s, we jumped at the chance. When I think of my relationship to music, I’m flooded with memories of friendship, mix tapes (which evolved into mix cd’s, then eventually iPod and Spotify playlists), and how music for me was tied for a long time to identity politics and convening communities. If you’re in the Philadelphia area, I hope you’ll be able to attend what will be a lively and thoughtful gathering. Sometime after the event, video footage will be made available in case you can’t be there. For more video and photography work by Daniel and me, visit http://xoevangeline.com. Let’s get this party started!
