Perhaps the original democratic, barrier-breaking format in modern music, the cassette tape still refuses to die. Exploring the role of this revolutionary invention in the proliferation of pop culture, Cassette features musical luminaries such as Henry Rollins, Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) and Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi), who appear alongside a legion of young bands still releasing music on tape, and the man who unleashed a new music sharing culture on the world, paving the way to the likes of MySpace and Spotify.

Followed by a Q&A with director Zack Taylor, editor and producer Georg Petzold, Lou Ottens, inventor of the compact cassette, and very special guests. Tickets available from the Genesis website here.
