About This Event

Is there a song or artist you LOVE that you just have to share with fellow musicians? Do you like to think about what music songs interesting, special, or unique? Do you like to share thoughts and opinions about music with your fellow musicians?

If the answer to any of these questions is YES, come join us for the Flashband Monthly Mixtape Club!  It's music’s version of a book club - join fellow musicians in listening and discussing cool and interesting tracks from a variety of genres and artists. Each attending musician submits one song that they think is worth discussing to the group beforehand; at the session, we listen to each of the songs and discuss what makes it tick.

Even with music all around us, we rarely take the time to actively listen to the music we come across - just listening, thinking, and dissecting the building blocks of a song. This mixtape club is part of the Flashband series on active listening, that includes our Listening Parties and the soon-to-launch ‘Listening Heard’ podcast.

Want to know the type of stuff we talk about at the Mixtape club? Read this article on Slate about the music theory of Daft Punk's Get Lucky.


Have a song you want us to discuss? Send it in here. One song per person, and we won’t have time to cover all songs. Song submission deadline: Friday at noon.
