Recap: WCDB’s 34th Anniversary Music Fest

14 bands took to the stage to help ring in WCDB’s 34th anniversary as a station, providing party-goers and WCDB’ers with two packed days of live music.

It was great to see Valentine’s dressed up for the occasion with balloons and streamers everywhere and more importantly, bursting at its seams with attendees. Special shouts to those who wore birthday hats in celebration of the station’s 34th “WCDBirthday”.

The weekend’s line-up consisted of Barons in the Attic (with the festival being the official release of their new album Turn it Off and Take Out the Battery), Avi Buffalo, The Parlor, Hanslick Rebellion, Around the World and Back, Slaughterhouse Chorus, if Madrid, Secret Release, Ramblin’ Jug Stompers, Matthew Carefully, The Neighborhoods, Brian Dewan, Sgt Dunbar and Titus Andronicus. Wow.

In addition to being rewarded with experiencing excellent music, there was also what seemed like a raffle prize given away on the hour, if not more, and plenty walked home with vinyl and WCDB merch. Thanks to Nicole and WCDB for organizing chaos under one roof this past weekend.

Be sure to keep the merriment going all year long and check out the station; you might even become a regular listener afterall. You can view the schedule on their website and lock in via iTunes or radio dial 90.9FM.
