Dan Kennedy

Keep on rockin’ in the corporate world

Congratulations. After years of low-paying, demeaning jobs and a couple of minor freelance successes, you have landed your dream gig. No, you won’t be a rock star, like you wanted to be when you were 14 and 24, but you get to work with rock stars. . . And then you wake up. You realize your job isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. The recording industry is dying and you just might be helping to speed up this slow death. You were suckered in like a thousand other wannabes. Only, it gets worse—your contract holds you in tighter than a fur coat on Fat Joe. Then again, it can’t be all bad if you managed to write a book about it. Dan Kennedy, this is your life. Rock On: An Office Power Ballad is your book. Be nice to the people when they come to get a signed copy. Not everyone gets to live the dream, even if it turned out to be a nightmare. Sunset Tavern, 5433 Ballard Ave. N.W., 784-4880. Free. 7 p.m. T.J. TRANCHELL

Fri., Feb. 29, 7 p.m., 2008
