The Museum of Pop Culture's annual Pop Conference, first held in 2002, mixes together ambitious music discourse of every kind to bring academics, critics, musicians, and dedicated fans into a collective conversation. Pop Con 2020 is being reimagined as an online conference to be held in September 2020 (exact dates and times to be announced). Leading up to the virtual event this fall MoPOP will host a series of teaser events. The second, Stuck In My Head takes place at 2 p.m. PT on Thursday, June 25.
Pop Con 2020 Presents: Stuck In My Head, featuring programming committee members Summer Kim Lee and Iván Ramos as they bring together a group of new Pop Con presenters to explore the songs that stay stuck in our heads from our youth. On this roundtable, panelists will each present on a song of their choosing to explore what it means to stay attached to the music of our youth, no matter how embarrassing or problematic it feels and sounds in the present. What might getting stuck on a particular era—on that one song or style—illuminate more generally about the experience of listening to pop music?
