The Attendance Records event at the Mohawk this Thursday is going to be an awesome culmination of creativity and dedication for an even MORE awesome cause. Over the past year the kids of Anderson High were given the opportunity to learn how to design, write and produce their own album, with the help of local writers, musicians and artists.
All of this was made possible by Jenna Carrens, who started Attendance Records with the hope of inspiring youngsters interested in music, and equipping them with the skills it takes to be a DIY music professional. Whether it was writing songs, designing album artwork, or organizing a showcase, the after-school workshops taught the students about the ins and outs of the music biz.
The shindig this Thursday is a chance for the students to put what they’ve learned into action. Throughout the night they will be manning various stations, where they’ll be doing screen printing, recording on-the-spot reviews, and even hopping on stage. Local bands, like The Sour Notes, Mother Falcon and many more, will be performing the songs from the Attendance Records album that the kids helped write and arrange.
