Snugs Proudly Presents... Into the Archives with the AACM: Chicago Comes to New York
In May of 1977, members of the AACM collaborated with students at radio station WKCR to present "Chicago Comes to New York," a four-day music festival at Columbia University's Wollman Auditorium. Thirty members of the AACM came to New York with their families and friends for the festival, many for the first time. The festival also included an on-air component in the form of a ninety-hour broadcast of music and interviews with AACM artists. Over the last year, two WKCR alums, Daro Behroozi and Anabel Anderson, restored and digitized the entire collection of reel-to-reel tapes from the festival, hearing the music for the first time since it was recorded...

Join us this January as we revisit this momentous event through a series of discussions with artists who participated. Celebrate the incredibly important work that members of the AACM have been doing to promote artistic freedom and self-determination for nearly half a century. Help us revitalize and share these pieces of recorded history that have been sitting untouched in WKCR's archive for over 35 years.
