Tuning in with Thomas Conner

I keep getting older, this movie stays the same age

"Well, all I'm saying is that I want to look back and say that I did I the best I could while I was stuck in this place. Had as much fun as I could while I was stuck in this place. Played as hard as I could while I was stuck in this place. ..."

Part of that survival method, as outlined in the Richard Linklater coming-of-age classic "Dazed and Confused," included getting tickets to the upcoming Aerosmith concert -- and deciding which was more important: a life laid out for you ("sign that paper!") or a life you make yourself ("Aerosmith -- top priority of the summer!").

Catch the film and a discussion of it as part of the Sound Opinions at the Movies series at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Music Box Theatre, 3733 N. Southport. Your hosts for the time travel -- and a chat about one of the best and well-employed rock soundtracks -- are Vocalo blogger Jim DeRogatis and Tribune music critic Greg Kot, both from NPR's "Sound Opinions" show.

Tickets are $9 in advance and $8 for WBEZ members, and are available online. Any remaining tickets will be $10 at the door.
