LOVING CHRIST, HATING CHRISTIAN ROCK

The thing I am doing at Calvin College for their festival of faith and music can now be official and out-loud: in lieu of some boring-azz workshop, I am going to be "in discussion" with David Bazan of Pedro the Lion fame about his work, reframing faith in music, dealing with his secular and non secular audiences and coming up and out of "Christian Rock". IT'LL BE A JAM, even though I just used the word "reframing". The previous night will be Hold Steady and Cornell West, though on sep. bills--a dream, que no?
