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!

Casablanca

07:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater
https://bctboxoffice.org/event/casablanca/

“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.”

Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), owns the hottest nightclub in Casablanca during the early days of World War II. Rick professes to be neutral in all political matters but eventually must choose between his love for an old flame (Ingrid Bergman) and helping her and her husband, a Czech Resistance leader, escape from the Vichy-controlled city.

Originally thought to be one of the hundreds of ordinary movies produced in 1942, this film exceeded expectations in a dramatic fashion. Casablanca went on to win the Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay. Its lead characters, quotable lines, and signature song all become iconic, and the film consistently ranks near the top of lists of the greatest films in history.

Doors for this general admission event will open at 6:30pm.
