Writing Rock is a hidden jem of the Skidmore English Department. Offered every-other semester or so by Marc Woodworth (Avid music and cultural critic, author of Guided By Voices’ Bee Thousands 33 1/3rd book, and associate editor at Salmagundi), Writing Rock is an intensive writing workshop about the history and current state of music journalism.

Students learn how to analyze, critique, and report on popular music and artists. As part of the course, each student picked an on-campus (or Skidmore-affiliated) band to profile. You can read those profiles at SkidmoreWritingRock14.Wordpress.com

The class is organizing a showcase to present the bands that they have written about. There are 11 bands and solo artists that will be performing short sets. The line-up includes:

Quick Fix
Free Cake for Every Creature
Amir Rivera-Lieberman
Elliot Daniels
Melissa Chilinski
Phil Ortiz
Ryan Meczywor
Ethan Carpene
Katie Martucci
Ian Bakerman

Wood(worth)Stock is tomorrow, Tuesday the 22nd, at the amphitheater outside of Zankel at 5 p.m. Rain location: Falstaff’s.
