It's that time of year again, for The Independent Weekly's Hopscotch Music Festival, running September 6-8 in downtown Raleigh! As previously mentioned, WXDU will be hosting an event with Three Lobed Recordings, but we'll also be doing a preview that will showcase many of the bands that will be at the festival this year. Because 35% of the artists performing at Hopscotch are local, it'd be a good time to look at the others coming through town as well. On this edition of I Liked You Better Before You Sold Out, Grayson Currin, co-founder of Hopscotch and music editor of the Indy, will be coming by for an interview as well. Tune in from 8-9 pm.
July's edition of I Liked You Better Before You Sold Out will be happening on Sunday, 7/15 featuring SPIDER BAGS! Spider Bags' third full length, "Shake My Head", will be out in August and we'll be playing it for everyone's listening pleasure. Tune in at 8 pm!
On Sunday 5/20, I Liked You Better Before You Sold Out is back, with Roberto Cofresi of New Town Drunks coming in and chatting about Baudelaire in a Box, a serial cantastoria based on famed French poet Charles Baudelaire's "Les Fleurs du Mal" - this performance being put on by Chicago's Theater Oobleck, it will have performances by New Town Drunks, Curtis Eller, Jason Kutchma (Red Collar), and Dexter Romweber. In addition, scrolling images known as "crankies" will be featured. We'll be playing some music from all artists involved and we'll even read some poetry. A ILYBBYSO first, I think...
Tune in at 8 pm!
