TUNE IN: Iggy Pop Streaming “Free” Listening Event and Q&A Tomorrow
The rocker will share a recap of last Saturday’s pop-up event on his YouTube channel.
Back in 2012 I saw Iggy Pop headline Riot Fest, and I remember midway through his set, in the middle of one of his songs, he announced to the crowd that his doctor told him it was incredibly unsafe for him to continue to stage dive at his age after all the punk shenanigans his body has undergone over the past fifty years. Seconds later I witnessed his body shoot off the stage, over what looked like ten feet of photo pit, into a massive swath of eager arms.
Eight years later, the punk rocker hasn’t slowed down a bit—neither with his steady touring nor with his prolific studio output (nor his frequent Jarmusch cameos). In the wake of recent gigs at Carnegie Hall and The Tonight Show, Iggy hosted a special pop-up for his recent LP Free this past Saturday at NYC’s Perrotin, signing limited-edition copies (specifically limited to 340) of a “test pressing” of the record, which included a bonus 7-inch housing two exclusive tracks. The event was in collaboration with artist Maurizo Cattelan, who designed Free’s cover, and also featured a retrospective of Cattelan’s work.
If you missed it, don’t fret—tomorrow, March 10, Pop will be hosting an “intimate exploration of Free,” which the songwriter filmed at New York’s YouTube Space, and which will be streaming exclusively on his YouTube channel. Among other things, the stream promises to feature a Q&A with Iggy and those who attended Saturday’s event. Tune in below tomorrow at 3 p.m. ET to attend.
