Playing WHFR’s Benefit Show

5 Dec

We thought it would be cool to play out again, and for a benefit show for a  rad station, Washington Heights Free Radio (WHFR). You must check out http://www.whfr.org. You can listen from anywhere.

WHFR is a DIY radio station in Washington Heights that broadcast music, storytelling, poetry, live events, and more, live off the web. The radio station acts on a volunteer basis and all funding comes out of donations and/or the founders’ pockets (mostly the latter).

Nikkie has been spinning tunes on WHFR every last Wednesday of the month for a year now.

Under the pseudo Calypso Sally, the name of her drums, her show, Broad Strokes, tries to play as many different genres as possible: from hip hop to soca, from bebop to punk rock. She also invites bands to play live acoustic sets as well.

It’s also Nikkie’s birthday that week, and she wanted to celebrate it with you, and you, and you…

So we’ve been in the lab creating, laughing, and coming up with tunes. We have a new one to share, so we hope you’ll be there on Saturday, December 11 at 6:30 p.m.

Where: Fort Useless, 36 Ditmars Street, Brooklyn, NY
When: Saturday, December 11 @ 6:00 p.m.
Bands: Boy With the Ice Cream Face, TSTAR, Object, Magnetic Island, Coyote Eyes
Cost: $8
