ED. NOTE: This post sucks. Skip over it. The moral of the story is, don’t post when your laptop battery power is under 12%.
And auto apologies to any students of the School of Rock.
Stax Music Academy: From Soulsville to Italy is a 2007 Documentary that follows the first ever Summer Soul Tour of the Stax Music Academy.
The music academy is a state-of-the-art facility at the Memphis museum of the legendary Soul Music label which mentors at risk youth through music education. The first tour, which took place in 2006, took several of the students at the academy abraod to Italy where they performed on a month long concert tour.
The documentary, which was produced by Memphis station WKNO, won a National Telly award in 2008. The documentary itself is very entertaining and I couldn’t help but get swept into their wonderful talent. There may beat the School of Rock, but does it have STAX’s soul?
Buckshot and KRS-One will be at the Center City FYE (Broad & Chestnut Sts, Center City, Phialdelphia.) to promote thier new Album, Survival Skills on the 16th. I will be there.
Lastly, there is a new Inuyasha TV series that is set to premiere, probably by the end of the month that will finish the last volumes from the manga.
