WXDU is proud to cosponsor an early voting rally at The Pinhook next Sunday, October 26, at 2:00 p.m.

The show will be FREE, and features a ton of great local bands, including PIPE, Shirlette Ammons, Daniel Bachman, Hammer No More The Fingers, Some Army, Midnight Plus One, and SOON, plus DJ Direwolf spinning between bands.
