Welcome, rocker nation, to the third episode of Rock it Out! Blog in its brand new format. Every Friday, host Sami Jarroush rounds together an esteemed panel of critics, musicians, and comedians to discuss the week’s biggest headlines live from our new set at JBTV in downtown Chicago.
This week, Sami’s panel consists of Consequence of Sound Publisher Alex Young, Mike Petruccelli, a freelance writer and vocalist/guitarist of Chicago punk bands Rapids and Tens, and comedian Kevin Kellan. They discuss the recent leaking of high-profile albums from Björk and Madonna and possible fallout going forward. They also talk the latest rumors regarding Ben Affleck’s involvement in six (!) Batman films, and a couple that got a little too raunchy at a recent Dead Kennedys show.
Plus, you also get an exclusive report from the Sundance Film Festival.
