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. "Ignore Facts," a music video by Clive Davis Institute student Computerwife. "The song and video are about a time when I suddenly was completely alone in New York, depressed, working a difficult job, and slowly turning to unhealthy coping mechanisms that destroyed me very quickly. I ended up having a come down that was so intense that I finally had to call my parents and ask to come home, giving up everything I'd worked for because I couldn't handle the way I felt....The song and video are about the most intense change I've ever had. It's about my first time experiencing real darkness and learning how to control that, use it, and become stronger and more well rounded because of it."
2. Michelle Habell-Pallan interviewing punk rocker Lysa Torres about her song "Decolonize My Love."
