We are very excited to announce a new partnership with Centre Pompidou’s Studio 13/16! PSRS has been invited to host special events and workshops at the legendary museum and cultural institution, starting with a performance from two of our PSRS Paris bands, Carbonation and Live Wire. If you missed the event, check out the video below to see how PSRS rocked the Forum!
Next up are two workshops (Songwriting and Fanzine) on the theme of rock and roll, self-expression, and DIY.
These ateliers were designed to accompany the Southwind Project currently on display at Centre Pompidou.
From the PSRS desks:
Rock and roll is more than just music.
It’s an attitude. It’s a lifestyle. It’s a celebration of the human spirit: our triumphs, our failures, our desires, our fears. Being rock and roll is about being you and doing your thing, despite what others say. You don’t need to play an instrument to be rock and roll.
In English, when we see that spirit, or that uniqueness, or that difference displayed, we say “THAT’S rock and roll.”
The boy who embraces his fears and gets on stage to perform: that’s rock and roll.
The girl who designs her own clothes to express her personal style: that’s rock and roll.
The kids who march for the future of the planet, defying the status quo : that’s rock and roll.
And when we first learned about Maxime and Mark’s voyage down the Mississippi in a small steamboat, our first thought was that’s rock and roll.
One of the best things about rock and roll is that it brings people together. We become united in our love of the band, our love of the music, and our commitment to the message. Park Slope Rock School’s two ateliers (Fanzine and Songwriting) will bring people together to share ideas, find our voice and create something that is our own.
Now THAT’S rock and roll.
