According to Rob Gordon, there's an art to making a good mixtape. It takes some finesse, sure, but a list and a formula? Eh. But whatever method you subscribe to, it's time to polish up your skills because tomorrow is the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art's Save the Mixtape event.
The premise is that along with some live music (courtesy of Family Tree Analog, The Health Club and A Faulty Chromosome), the event will reinvigorate your passion for little plastic tapes. Go to hell mix-cds and playlists! The tape should have six songs on each side, totaling a whopping 12!
Once everyone shows up, there will be a big mixtape exchange and everyone will probably be a little better for it.
