Being a parent is just plain hard. As the father of a 3 year-old and a 7-month old, I can personally attest that the hardest moments of life are often associated with the crippling insecurity and self-doubt that accompanies every decision you make for your child. You second-guess literally everything no matter how simple or mundane.

We're very honored to welcome two incredible filmmakers to the Front Row to talk about their new documentary. Nelson and Maxx have spent the last 4 years compiling, interviewing and editing this never-before-seen look at the street-level courage and hardships of the unending pro-democracy protests in Venezuela.

Documentaries have a wondrous power to beam directly into our hearts and minds. Sure movies are, in their most basic form, just wonderfully produced stories but when those stories come with the intensity of real-life issues in the world, those stories are able to penetrate barriers and give us an understanding and empathy we might otherwise never experience.

Michael Grecco Photography

A few months ago we had the pleasure of speaking with celebrity photographer Michael Grecco about his career. Now we're so happy to welcome him BACK to the Front Row to talk about his brand new book "Punk, Post Punk and New Wave" and the incredible never-before-seen photographs that populate this incredible record of one of the most iconic periods in music and cultural history.
