huffpo pays off – POP mtl

by Hugh

Hey, I *am* the media! Writing for the Huffington Post pays off! I got a press pass to Pop&Policy Conference (part of Pop!Montreal) and I plan to go see:

Thurs.Oct.4 – 1:00pm – 3:00pm – Tanna Schulich Hall (527 Sherbrooke W.)
KEYNOTE & PANEL: Dr. Daniel Levitin,
Author of This is Your Brain on Music and Max Bell Chair in the Psychology of the Information Sciences at McGill University, offers an overview on music cognition – what we know about how musical expertise is attained and how musical preferences are formed. [link]

and:

Fri.Oct.5 – 4:00pm – 5:30pm – Pollack Hall (555 Sherbrooke W.)
KEYNOTE: Patti Smith
The “Poet Laureate of Punk Rock”, in a keynote conversation with John Nichols, Washington Editor of The Nation and author of The Great Impeachment. [link]

And I might go check out Evan and Brett talking turkey in the morning at their session: “Copyright and Collaboration: Problems and Creative Solutions” … Thurs.Oct.4 – 10:45 – 12:15 – Tanna Schulich Hall.

I wonder if that gets me into music shows too?
