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).

 

Super Power Wower!

Hi Folks! We lost power here at the station, so we're trying to get Who's Got The Cuckoo up and running again ASAP! Sorry for the hassles. Big storms in the region, I guess...

Cheers,

The Weather Station interview and in-studio performance - Tonight! (9/3) at 8pm

Tune in this evening for an interview and in-studio performance with Tamara Lindeman of The Weather Station in the WXDU studio. The Weather Station will be playing at Hopscotch this Friday (9pm at the Fletcher Opera Theater) in support of last year's All of it Was Mine, an album of modern folk that has garnered praise for its literate storytelling, vivid imagery, and intimate acoustics. We will also have some passes to give away for the Saturday night City Plaza performances at Hopscotch.
