Stuff We're Thinking About

WXDU Local Music Series Show TOMORROW (4/18)! T0W3RS, GREAT ARCHITECT & JOHNNY ALRIGHT!

WXDU's Local Music Series ends its Spring run tomorrow night at the Duke Coffeehouse with a triple bill of the highest quality. From Raleigh, you have shapeshifting weirdo pop of T0W3RS. Making its way all the way from Charlotte is the transcendant avant-jazz splattering of Great Architect, and from Glittertown, you can enjoy the wild Stooges/Bolan-bruising rawk of Johnny Alright. Doors are at 8pm. Show starts at 9pm. $5 or free with a Duke ID!

 

Dex Romweber Duo on Sunday 4/13

I Liked You Better Before You Sold Out is proud to present Dex Romweber Duo, who are celebrating the release of their third album, Images 13.   They've just come off a very successful (and long!) tour, but Dex and Sara will be coming by to spin yarns and records, and we'll be playing cuts off the new album as well.  Tune in at 6 pm.

DJ of the Month!

Shark

Hey friends! My name is Shark. My show is every other Thursday night from 10 pm to 12 am. I like to play mostly things that are loud and fast. I also like to play things I've never heard before. In addition to DJing, I'm the events director for WXDU which means I do things like help plan awesome events and try to write professional-sounding e-mails. It's a ton of fun! 

 

 

 

Listen on Your Phone!

No, we don't have a custom WXDU iPhone app. We've found something BETTER: an app that will let you listen to any streaming radio station: TuneIn Radio, powered by TuneIn.com. It allows you to record, pause & rewind streams, view cover art & artist info. And it's available for iPhoneAndroid, Palm and Blackberry!
