WXDU is excited to host an in-studio interview & live performance from NYC free-improv duo The Home of Easy Credit TONIGHT at 7pm.

They will be stopping by to chat & play before heading to the NIGHTLIGHT in Chapel Hill for a live show later tonight with Horse Lords.

To learn more and register online go to the Durham Monster Dash website.
This costumed fun run benefits the following charities that enhance children's lives through creative expression:
Tues night 6pm-8pm on "The Bull City Cosmic Hoedown", my guest will be piano player Tom Merrigan. Tom loves to sing and play boogie-woogie and stride piano -- and if you tune in this evening, you'll hear why -- as I talk to Tom about the music that inspires him, his own songwriting and the Durham Street Piano Project (where Tom hauls a small upright piano around town with the help of a small trailer and cart and plays on street corners and in front of bars and restaurants). Tom's wild and rollicking piano and vocal style is a great addition to the streets of Durham and will liven up any corner in a hurry! Tune in locally 6pm-8pm on 88.7FM or listen to WXDU online via your computer, phone or internet-capable-fridge.
WXDU and Three Lobed Records are live at King's Barcade from Noon until 5! Come hear the great lineup of performers. But if you can't make it to the show, just tune into WXDU and listen to the sets live on-air!
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.
