Big Thief teaching songwriting masterclass to benefit The People’s Bodega
Big Thief are teaching a masterclass in songwriting and creativity on Friday, July 24 at 5:30 PM ET, as a fundraiser for The People's Bodega. It's happening in partnership with Brooklyn Music Factory, where all summer, the program's Advanced Band students have been participating in a variety of workshops and masterclasses, ranging in subjects from home recording, advanced lyric writing, to how to make DIY music videos. For Big Thief's masterclass, they will be tackling the subject of creating one's own unique sound as a musician.
The event is free for BMF Advanced Band students, and the public is "100% welcome," with a suggested donation to raise money for The People's Bodega, "a mobile mutual-aid collective that provides everything from PPE, sunscreen, food, water, and more to NYC protesters against police brutality." The People's Bodega is also currently seeking supplies.
In other Big Thief-related news, the band's guitarist, Buck Meek, released a new quarantine-written solo track called "Roll Back Your Clocks" last week.
