Downtown: World in a Word
Friday, May 01, 2009
For decades, the term 'downtown' described the experimentalism of music, art and culture in lower Manhattan. On Wednesday, WNYC's Soundcheck explored how that shorthand definition is changing in a live broadcast from The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space. Guests included rocker Lou Reed, indie new-wave artist Santigold and string quartet Ethel.
