All good things must end, and with McNally Smith’s fall semester rapidly coming to a close, the inaugural run of the Speakeasy Series aims to go out with a bang. Don’t miss out—get to the Soundbite Café between 4 and 6 tomorrow, Friday, November 16th, for casual mingling amongst the Twin Cities arts community, complimentary wine and snacks, and some truly killer music.
For the fourth and final Speakeasy installment of 2012, McNally Smith has tapped the ultra talented Chris Campbell—composer and the Operations Manager at Innova Recordings—to provide his sonic expertise as guest DJ. Campbell’s talent has helped make Innova a go-to spot for cutting edge creative music, and in addition to spinning some of his favorite tunes, he’s actually composed some original music specifically for the Speakeasy! Sample a taste of what’s to come below:
