"Based in Olympia, Wash., Calvin Johnson‘s work in underground culture started as a teenage fan volunteering at the local community radio station, KAOS-FM. He moved on to writing for fanzines, organizing music and film events, playing music in various ill-fated bands. Calvin established K, a locally oriented media outlet, in 1982.
Funk Disco Dance Friday on September 13th from 6-8 pm will feature Funk/Soul Divas: women of early 70s funk like Marva Whitney, Lyn Collins, Betty Davis and Ann Sexton, plus new artists like Sharon Jones and Alice Russell. In the first hour we'll also talk with Kirsten Sherk of Ipas about Retro Rock for Reproductive Rights, a benefit concert Saturday night featuring funk artists Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band. We'll hear new music from the Booty Band's upcoming album Onward! and talk about Ipas's work promoting access to reproductive health care.
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).
That's right, everyone's favorite Triad-based channeler of the Stooges & T Rex will be stopping by the station to Sing and Play His Songs. 4:00 p.m. & don't miss it!
