I’ve got a lot of good stuff to share on today’s show, notably some recordings from Isoundercore that had a bit of a torturous path to the airwaves. Let’s just say that someone opened someone else’s mail and leave it at that, shall we? I
n other business, WDBX is hosting a DJ Spin Party on August 5th, from 4-8pm. I thought it was a great idea until I realized that it was in Turley Park, and open to the public. Let that sink in– it’s basically a last-hurrah for this year’s Sunset Concert Series. Granted, I’m all in favor of the end of the Sunset Concerts, but I doubt this will be the ironic coup de grâce I’ve got in mind.
It’s anyone’s guess as to whether I’ll attend, but you’d better believe I’m taking my turn at the controls if I do, all requests for “danceable” music aside. Way to be inclusive, there. I bet “Light On the Law” will be keeping one end of the gym bleachers warm along with The Bioneers. But seriously, it might be fun, and Carbondale will survive– after all, who’ll hear it? Alcohol isn’t allowed!
But hey, let’s talk about performances I’m actually interested in: on the 6th and 7th of August, there’s Swampfest. In truth, I have no idea what it’s called, but that’s not the point. It’s two days worth of music at The Swamp! Unfortunately, this occasion actually DOES mark the end of their underground music series. Coincidentally, I’ll also be there, performing on the 7th around 7-ish. I have something interesting worked up, so I hope you’ll be able to make it.
