Mikey Cahill on Waxing Lyrical: The Good, The Bad and The Gaga

Are modern lyrics dropping the ball? Can we blame the iPod generation’s short attention cocker spaniels for a lack of intelligence in pop or does this just make songwriters try harder to be heard? What would Dylan think if he was still alive? Oh wait, he is…walking around using a Zimmerman frame. Culture Consultant Mikey Cahill (Hit Magazine, Time Out Melbourne) works out whether 2012 is also the apocalypse for lyrical genius.

Lunchbox / Soapbox

We love exploring ideas at the Wheeler Centre, and encouraging others to do the same. That’s why every Thursday lunchtime we hand the microphone over to the great thinkers, dreamers and orators of our time.

With a dazzling range of passionate speakers and unusual topics, our soapbox provides a platform for the eclectic, topical and enlightening stories you won’t hear elsewhere. This is the most memorable lunch break you’ll have all week.

If you’re in need of sustenance of body as well as mind, the MOAT lunch cart will be serving delicious $10 lunchboxes in the Performance Space from 12.20pm.
