Tune in tonight, and the first and third Sunday of each month, at 7:00 for WXDU news.

WKNC, WXYC, WUAG, WXDU and The Pinhook are coming together to promote safety for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence in North Carolina at a benefit concert called Play it Safe. Local acts, Gross Ghost, T0W3RS and Seagulls will play at The Pinhook on Friday, May 30. Doors are at 9pm, the show is at 10pm. Donations are accepted, and there will be a soul dance party following the event from 12am-2am. All proceeds will benefit the Durham Crisis Response Center.
The Kneads, a Greensboro indie-rock band featuring former members of 90s titans The Raymond Brake and Geezer Lake, will be joining us for a live on-air performance Sunday, May 25, at 4:00 p.m. Here's a preview via their bandcamp.
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. Merle Haggard, Old Crow Medicine Show, Ricky Scaggs, and Holly Williams are just a few of the talented performers for this year.

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.
