On I Liked You Better... on Sunday 6/12, the lovely gals of Pink Flag will be stopping by to promote their new EP, "King of Scene" - their first CD since 2008 (good grief)! The upcoming release will be 6/18 at the Motorco Music Hall here in Durham. Finally.
Ann Woodward, director of the Scrap Exchange, will be on I Liked You Better Before You Sold Out this Sunday 5/29. ILYB not only has in bands and musicians, but what we like to call "community enablers", and this organization is no exception. After the roof collapsed on Liberty Warehouse, the Scrap Exchange is going to have to move - and there will be a series of benefits around Durham, starting with one at the Casbah 6/4. We'll be playing a mess of the bands that will be contributing!
Tune in on Sunday 5/22 from 6-7 pm to catch Shannon Morrow, founder of the Triangle Soundpainting Orchestra, along with Christopher Thurston and Bendte Fagge, to promote their upcoming show at Motorco Music Hall this Wednesday, 5/25. TSO was founded as a "real time" composing ensemble, and they'll be playing alongside ZAHA, a soundpainting group from New York as well. There will be some live tracks from shows heard as well. There will be a workshop for composing at 6 pm before the performance at Motorco as well! We'll be discussing it all on I Liked You Better...
Hey all! The great and mighty HOG will be joining with Savannah this Sunday from 6-7 pm! Their new EP, Archetypes, is coming out now as well as a few shows coming up. They'll also be the first metal band on I Liked You Better..., so it'll be interesting. Right?
May Day!! Shayne Miel makes his triumphant return to the stage with Future Kings of Nowhere Saturday, May 7th at the Motorco Music Hall here in Durham - and he'll be here to chat about it with us. Tune in on Sunday May 1st, 6-7 pm!
From 6-7 pm Sunday 4/17, Birds & Arrows will be dropping by the station to chat, as well as play some tracks from their upcoming album, "We're Gonna Run", which will have its release party on May 7th at the Local 506 in Chapel Hill. Tune in!
The Instro Summit is a three day instrumental rock-only festival spanning the weekend of April 29th, 30th, and May 1st - and WXDU has all the info on it! Fast becoming the largest instro rock fest in the Southeast, we're going to club and drag in "chief instigator" Crispy Bess to prepare the populace for the lyric-free onslaught.

Nathan and Brian of DiggUp Tapes will be dropping by to talk about their upcoming cassingles box set release show at Kings February 10th and 11th! Brian will be a bit familiar already to some of you, as he's in Lonnie Walker, so we'll chat about their recent re-release of their CD by DiggUp as well. Tune in!
On I Liked You Better Before You Sold Out this coming Sunday, we're going to have a chat with Renee and Brian of Filthybird, about their upcoming shows, latest CD "Songs For Other People" and life in general.
