Fun fact, WCDB began broadcasting on March 1st, 1978 and will be celebrating its 34th birthday this year in the form of a 2-day festival hosted at Valentine’s March 2-3.
From this very moment until Sunday at 11:59pm, tickets are available here for a discounted price. Advance tickets are now available for $20 for the entire weekend, which averages out to $1.25 per each band’s live performance (!!!)
Among the 16 bands playing are Barons in the Attic celebrating their new CD release, as well as The Parlor (formerly We Are Jeneric), Avi Buffalo, Titus Andronicus, Brian Dewan, Sgt Dunbar and the Hobo Banned, and Matthew Carefully, to name a few.
Day passes will also be available, for $17/Saturday and $10/Friday, but you might as well save a few bucks and spend the whole weekend supporting local music and getting your money’s worth, right? Right. Also of note is that WCDB will be broadcasting live on 90.9fm straight from the club, as well as giving away concert tickets (check out upcoming shows here), t-shirts and vinyl.
Scope the full line-up and details over on their Facebook.
