Listening Parties: A Nostalgic Tweet Parade

Last Monday, has had Tim Burgess finally once again have a free evening. In the evenings, prior to that, he had spent since mid-March, all of you, on Twitter: With the so-called "Listening Parties", a Format that had launched Burgess, as the Corona-Lockdown went off and artists were looking for artists to provide a channel to reach your audience directly; the stages were for Yes until further notice blocked.

It is the Moment of the great, intimate was, world-wide cooperation, the Stream of readings, and living room concerts, a shared art experience in a confused Situation. And he brought forth any amount of formats that do not have survived that Moment but for a long time. Burgess and his "Listening Parties" are still there, and no end is in sight. He probably could make more, as long as there are plates and he has W-Lan. This is good news for all who are interested in pop music, or fond of entertaining, and be smart about art exchange, and a not-so-good for traditional Popjournalismus, but more on that later.

back Then, in the difficult March, had Burgess asked a couple of friendly people from the Pop, whether you would like to comment on a prearranged time under the Hashtag #TimsTwitterListeningParty your old plates, while listening to it Song for Song, so Fans like Stars at the same time.

Since then, there has been three hundred and fifty of such parties, once even ten Wainwright in a single day, with musicians Boy George to Rufus. Chris Frantz of the Talking Heads was Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran, almost all of New Order, although the changes were drawn toward each other to court and tens of thousands of normal people that were listening, asking questions, posting pictures and their stories told, of what these plates mean to them.
