Hopscotch Day Party sponsored by Three Lobed Recordings and WXDU!

We are excited to announce our Hopscotch Music Festival day party!  WXDU has teamed up with Three Lobed Recordings to put together a unique show featuring current and past Hopscotch performers.  It's all going down on Friday, September 7th at Kings Barcade!  Did we mention yet that it's FREE?!

Like it says on the Facebook event page - If you're into free / avant / psych / out / other music, this is where you're going to want to be. 

We realize many of our listeners will be at work or live too far away to check out this historic event, so WXDU will be simulcasting the entire show!  The broadcast will featuring a live feed provided by Jonas Blank of NYC Taper.  (Jonas and Cory from Three Lobed are Duke grads and we think that's pretty cool.)

Here's the bill:

12:00 - 12:30 -- Alan Bishop / Bill Orcutt / Chris Corsano trio (first North American performance and only their second overall performance)
12:45-1:10 -- Chuck Johnson
1:25-1:50 -- Hiss Golden Messenger (solo)
2:15-2:45 -- Oren Ambarchi / David Daniell duo (a first!)
3:00-3:30 -- William Tyler (not appearing otherwise solo at Hopscotch)
3:45-4:15 -- Wooden Wand (not appearing otherwise at Hopscotch)
4:30-5:00 - Gunn-Truscinski Duo (not appearing otherwise at Hopscotch)
+++ improvised live music between sets provided by Mike Gangloff & Nathaniel Bowles of the Black Twig Pickers +++

This will take you to the Facebook event page if you are into that sort of thing.
