Appel à contributions pour le volume Viva Las Vegas. Music and Myth in America’s City of Second Chances, sous la dir. de Jake Johnson.
« Las Vegas has been an important commercial hub for live and recorded music for most of the twentieth century. It is also arguably the most American of America’s cities–as art critic Dave Hickey put it, at least in Vegas “the payoffs are posted and the odds easily calculable.” Largely, however, the critical attention toward place and music industry has privileged other American commercial centers, namely Los Angeles and New York City. Despite Las Vegas’s rich musical entanglements, in fact, a full study of the musical and cultural values of the city has not yet emerged. Viva Las Vegas sets out to examine the sonic place-making and musical mythologies surrounding America’s City of Second Chances. »
