As of April, we can add “inspirational speaker with dope-ass rhetoric” to Matt Mahaffey‘s resume. The scientist behind all things quirky pop — and tear inducing — is scheduled to drop his knowledge of something at the independent TEDx event in Nashville. My hope is that 2013 brings a new format to these talks: let’s give the audience a reason to get live. Stand up from their seats, incite a friendly, bubblegum pop riot, one that causes everyone to move, sing along, and just straight up smile. If Matt isn’t dropping beats, perhaps the man is discussing the current state of affairs in the music industry. Shit, my fingers are crossed he’s simply announcing his sElf record is complete.
