This year, the annual EMP Pop Conference is going to be held for the first time outside Seattle, way down in the fair city of Los Angeles. Light In The Attic’s Matt Sullivan and Pat Thomas have been asked to participate in the panel discussion “Tales From The Crypt” on Sunday, February 27th from 9AM to 11AM. Matt will reading his paper ”‘There’s A Highway Telling Me To Go’: The Mystery of Jim Sullivan” detailing the saga of Jim Sullivan and Pat will be presenting his paper, “Militant Motown: the lost Black Forum recordings” about his forthcoming book Listen Whitey (Fantagraphics) about the Black Power movement.
We’re super excited to have two close friends on the panel with us: Andy Zax, who will be reading his paper “The Highly Improbable (But Utterly True) Saga Of Tupper Saussy: ‘LearnTo Pronounce It; You May Need To’” as well as Douglas McGowan (of Yoga Records) who’s reading his paper on New Age music entitled “Flogging A Dead Genre: Resuscitating New Age”.
