Taylor Mac’s history of American pop music in 24 hours

Studio 360

Courtsey of the MacArthur Foundation

Inventive drag performer Taylor Mac created “A 24-Decade History of Popular Music,” a decade-by-decade review of American pop music.

Each of the country’s 24 decades gets its own hour, and Taylor put all those decades together into one vast 24-hour musical extravaganza.

Taylor performs live in Studio 360 accompanied by Matt Ray on piano and backing vocals.
