This event is free and open to the public.
When: 6-7 p.m., Friday, Nov. 1, 2013
Where: The Cactus Cafe, 2247 Guadalupe St.
Background: "Sound Opinions" is the world's only rock and roll talk show. Based in Chicago's WBEZ, "Sound Opinions" is hosted by Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot, two of the best-recognized pop music writers in the nation. Every week, "Sound Opinions" fires up smart and spirited discussions about a wide range of popular music, from indie rock to classic rock, hip hop to R&B, and every genre under the sun.
"Sound Opinions'" consistently informed, engaging, and controversial dialogue makes it a unique and essential source for the top stories, albums and trends in music. The discussion is as indispensable to the hardcore music fan as it is to the casual music fan who feels out of touch.
"Sound Opinions" can be heard from 3-4 p.m. Sundays on KUTX 98.9 and again from 10 to 11 p.m. Sundays on KUT 90.5.
