Welcome to the beginning of summer, 2014 style, courtesy of Impose's Week in Pop. The sun-time/fun-time spirit is in full effect, where we are joined with discussions and a host of exclusives and insights from a handful of artists on the upward track. Buzzing about the popular news feeds this week was, of course, 50 Cent's epic opening pitch fail at Citi Field, Steve Perry singing Journey songs live with the Eels after a 19 year absence from the spotlight, LeVar Burton's “Reading Rainbow” Kickstarter, an upcoming Pulp doc, a stream of Primavera sound from now through Saturday, or how about that incident where Mac Culkin's Pizza Underground got booed and hit with lager projectiles at Nottingham's Do to Dot Festival, then Pharrell talked feminism and “Blurred Lines” controversies on Channel 4, Exene Cervenka of X turns “conspiracy therapist,” and we continue to celebrate the life, times, and work of Maya Angelou.
