The best “Freeform Radio Station of the Nation” WFMU (91.1 FM) has put together a stupendous lineup at Southpaw this upcoming Saturday, October 13th.
Guess how much it costs? Nothing, Nada, Zilch, Zero, in other words, its FREE baby!
Alan Vega (one half of Suicide ), Oneida, Simply Saucer and Old Time Relijun will all be performing.
This event is also a book release party. Here’s what WFMU has to say about this:
….this event will be doubling as a book release party for Dave the Spazz's similarly blazin' new FMU-centric book entitled The Best of LCD: the Art and Writing of WFMU. For newcomers to the party, LCD was WFMU's fabled program guide which for years gave the station a much-lauded representation in the print realm and featured content from not just DJs and listeners, but also noted cultural icons like Nick Tosches, Daniel Clowes, Luc Sante, Chris Ware, Daniel Johnston, and more. The Best of LCD... collects the best of these contributions and offers a fluid portrait of WFMU's relevance in the age before everything went packing for the promised land of the internet. The book will be available for sale at the show, and Dave the Spazz might even step out of his monkey suit long enough to sign a few copies, so saddle up and get ready!
D.J Dave the Spazz will also be spinning the vinyl in the basement lounge.
No advance tickets are available so I advise you to get there early!
Southpaw is located at 125 5th Avenue between St. John's & Sterling Place.
Doors open at 8pm.
