Stories about songs–the soundtrack to our lives. Dana Rossi hosts this monthly dose of music inspired nostalgia where guest writers and performers tell the hilarious or heart wrenching stories and memories they forever tie to certain songs. The Soundtrack Series has been called “the best rock and roll storytelling event in New York” by Flavorpill, and has been featured in the New York Times, BUST, NY1, “Above and Beyond” in the New Yorker, a Critic’s Pick in Time Out New York, and included among the “Best Events and Things to Do in NYC” by CBS News New York.
Jon Reiss has worked at NY Press and Jewcy for the past year, and he’s also a contributor to Spin Magazine, Venus Magazine, Vol. I Brooklyn, Punknews, The Faster Times Brooklyn Based, and Impose. He’s recently finished a novel called Getting Off, and you can read more at jonreiss.tumblr.com..
