Three Lobed Recordings / WXDU Hopscotch Day Show at King's Barcade (& simulcast)

Three Lobed Recordings and Duke's WXDU are once again teaming up for one heck of a free day show during the Hopscotch Music Festival. Our festivities will go down at the ever-rad King's Barcade from noon to 5:30pm on Friday, September 6th. We have worked hard to assemble a lineup of performances that are unique to this show - be it performers who are not making other appearances at the festival or special collaborations. As with every prior Three Lobed day show, this year's day show will feature a debut collaboration (2011 - the world premiere live collaboration of William Tyler and James Toth on "Tennessee Blues" -- 2012 the North American debut of the BOC trio, Alan Bishop, Bill Orcutt and Chris Corsano). If you're into free / avant / psych / out / other music, this is where you're going to want to be. If you can't make it, WXDU will be simulcasting the show and exclusive artist interviews (featuring a live feed by Jonas Blank ofNYCTaper). There will be *tons* of merch on hand, including some oddball titles, from all of the involved performers. Be ready.

***This is a free event and you do no have to have a Hopscotch wrist band to attend!***
