Description:

Songwriting is one of the most powerful forms of poetry and storytelling combined. It can also be a play with characters acting out their tale. Where would our social consciousness be without songs?  Its making a literary impression with music.

Join nationally acclaimed music critics Jim Derogatis and Greg Kot from the radio show SOUND OPINIONS as they interview hip-hop artist PROBCAUSE to discuss the art of songwriting. ProbCause will perform as well. An informative and entertaining evening discussing the art of songwriting and the specific musical genre of hip-hop.

Q&A to follow. Merchandise will be available as well.
