For our breaks between the daytime sessions, members of our Programming Committee volunteered to curate/create short bits of "bonus beats" content.

For this break, we have:

1. "New Year’s Day (Live)," a 2020 music video by NYU Clive Davis Institute student Sabrina Song: "This piece is a live performance of my song "New Year's Day". It was written on January 1st, 2020, and was inspired by the overwhelming and conflicting feelings that come with every new year. There is so much unnecessary pressure to create new goals, reflect and improve, and I always find myself feeling stress rather than optimism.

2. Michelle Habell-Pallán interviewing punk rock artist Alice Bag about her song, "Sister Dynamite."
