Live at WUOG

On Thursday night, University of Georgia radio station WUOG (90.5 FM) released its fourth compilation of live performances, Live at WUOG. The selections were culled from a few of their programs, as explained by the station's press release:

Our staff has been hard at work this past year booking, setting up, and producing bands to create our 4th release of live performances recorded in our studios. In addition to performances from "Live in the Lobby" it includes tracks from "Live Fast Rules" our live local metal show that is part of "Loud Fast Rules", "Crunk in the Lobby", our live hip-hop special which is put on by the DJs that host "The Halftime Hip Hop Show", as well as various non-local artists that have stopped by the station on tour from places such as North Carolina or even Sweden.

Contributions range from local C&T favorites (Madeline and Russian Spy Camera) to prominent indie acts (Lonely, Dear and The Posies). There's also fun pop (The Old Ceremony) and hilarious dance music (Les Napoleones) along with rock (Heros Severum) and local hip-hop (Deaf Judges, The Renegadez). There's also an unfortunate sampling of metal bands that pretty much hurt my head (e.g., Gravel Undertone, The Plague, and the painful screamo of Tualatin).

Even with a few misses the collection includes enough hits by local, regional, or (inter)national talent to make it a worthwhile sampler. The tracklist, along with a few free songs and a link to grab the whole darn thing:

Ha! I still haven't figured out how to get the jacket out of the plastic to read it. Without damaging it, that is. ;-)

I'd always wished WRAS could do something like this, but at GSU red tape is the word.

Ah, they 're not on my radar at all. Never heard of them other than on this comp. Nothing against them, just not my thing.
