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!
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.
Win tickets to MerleFest 2014 and join the annual music homecoming presented by Lowe’s April 24th through the 27th at Wilkes Community College.

Tune in to Polyphonic Perversity on Sunday, April 6, 12-2pm to hear an interview with Brooklyn Rider. The group (Johnny Gandelsman and Colin Jacobsen, violins; Nicholas Cords, viola; Eric Jacobsen, cello) is one of the most exciting string quartets currently out there, creating a veritable jukebox of musics from around the world and across history.
WXDU welcomes Jukebox Graduates to the airwaves this Sunday, April 6, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Jukebox Graduates is Githens Middle School's Bruce Springsteen radio club. Sunday's program is the first installment and will feature original content from these Durham students, as well as music from The Boss and other artists.
We hope you'll listen in to this great hour of music and commentary. Only at 88.7 FM and WXDU.org.
On Sunday 3/30 John Howie Jr. will be stopping by to chat and he'll be toting his guitar along with him - he'll be playing a few cuts live from Everything Except Goodbye, the upcoming album and second effort from his outfit, John Howie Jr. and the Rosewood Bluff. Their album release will be Saturday, 4/12 at The Cave in Chapel Hill, but you can get a sneak preview at 7 pm!
WXDU will give away a pair of passes for Moogfest 2014 this Friday, March 28 at the Heads on Sticks / Drag Sounds / Trashettes show at the Duke Coffeehouse. Moogfest will be held April 23-27 in Asheville, North Carolina.
The duo of Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance, 200 Years, Comets on Fire) and Donovan Quinn (Skygreen Leopards, solo LPs on Northern-Spy) put out their first full length as NEW BUMS just a few weeks ago, Voices in a Rented Room (on Drag City Records)). Tonight they'll be playing an early show at The Pinhook (117 W. Main St. in Durham) with Tashi Dori that starts at 7pm. Before that, they'll be on air talking with our own J. Kelly Davis and playing a few songs. Good ragged-but-poppy acoustic duo stuff FFO: stripped down Big Star, Epic Soundtracks, 70s psych-folk, etc. Don't miss it!
