Cicada Cinema and Landlocked Music are excited to present:

A Cosmic and Earthly History of Recorded Music According to Mississippi Records: A Film & Talk Presentation

A mix of film, audio, slides and lecture presented by Mississippi Records founder Eric Isaacson. This presentation attempts to tell the entire history of recorded music in 90 minutes — from the first star being born to the current age of bizarre technology.
Subjects covered will include the cosmic patterns that resemble music generated by stars being born and dying, the untold early history of recording technology, the rise of blues, rock and roll, and other revolutionary American music forms and their subsequent destruction by the powers that be, and some hopeful messages about the future.

Mississippi Records is a store and label based in Portland, Oregon. They’ve released over 240 records spanning nearly every genre of music, ran a store for 15 years, and traveled the world with presentations such as this one. All of this has been done with no online presence, no promotion or advertising of any kind anywhere and no general existence in the digital world!

Monroe County History Center, 202 E 6th Street
http://www.monroehistory.org

Join us for an opening reception for our newest exhibit: Women and RCA!

With the onset of World War II, the traditional social roles for men and women of Monroe County shifted dramatically. With a large number of men overseas, women had to take up both roles. The new exhibition ‘Women and RCA’ shows how women contributed to the war effort, took care of their families, and shaped the identity of a post-World War II Monroe County.

Women and RCA will be on display from January 25 to May 18.
