About the Author

Paul Lopes is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Tufts University, Massachusetts. He was Director of the Communications and Media Studies Program at Tufts from 1994 to 2001. He also is a saxophonist who has played in jazz, reggae and rock groups.


"Lopes has written a richly informative and highly readable book that is a welcome addition to the growing number of academic studies that engage with musical styles as the lifeblood of 'scenes' -- living cultures producing a verve and commitment that remain hard to fathom for those on the 'outside.'" American Journal of Sociology
