Toward a Theology of Independent Music
Kevin Erickson

What is independent music? Where did it come from and why does it matter? Can creative choices about the production and distribution of art be spaces of cultural & social change as powerful as the works themselves? What would Gustavo Guiterrez think of Fugazi? Drawing on insights from Andy Crouch, Cornel West, and others, Erickson sketches out answers to these questions, and also explains why itís probably a bad idea to turn your churchís youth room into an all-ages venue.
