What's Goin' On, Now? A Listening Party at USC

As part of a nationwide non-profit educational initiative of The Kennedy Center aimed at using Marvin Gaye's album What's Going On as a means of raising political and social awareness among urban youth, the Lear Center's Popular Music Project and the USC Office of Religious Life are hosting a live listening session of the whole Marvin Gaye album, start to finish, outside, in public, open and free to all, as an experiment in making musical community through listening. PMP director Josh Kun will moderate a conversation with singer Aloe Blacc during the break between Side A and Side B to inform the audience on the album and its legacy.
