WRAS benefit @ Eyedrum, Dec. 2
This Saturday, December 2, Georgia State University radio station WRAS (Album 88) will be hosting a fundraiser at The Eyedrum here in Atlanta. This will also be a celebration of the station's 35th anniversary - yay! There will be lots of music, giveaways, and free cake, so it promises to be a humdinger.
The festivities start at 4:30pm, and will feature a number of diverse bands. Headlining will be Athens indie folk artist Phosphorescent and L.A.-based experimental act Daedelus. In support will be upcoming rock acts from Atlanta (The Selmanaires, Moresight) and Athens (Boulevard) as well as acclaimed Atlanta hip-hop artists Psyche Origami and electronica act Aerial2012.
It promises to be one heck of a show, and it's only $8 for 7 bands all day. Here are tracks from some of the bands, and links to the others:
Phosphorescent - I am a Full Grown Man (I Will Lay in the Grass All Day)
The Selmanaires - Images
Psyche Origami - Nuff Teef
Good stuff, eh?
