KWUR Week is now officially upon us

| Senior Cadenza Editor

Hey, guys! KWUR Week 2010 starts Wednesday, so I hope you’re ready for four nights of underground and local bands in the Gargoyle. Every night, the doors open at 8 p.m. and the show starts at 8:30 p.m. Make sure to go­—after all, not every week is KWUR Week (man, wouldn’t that be crazy).

Wednesday is Folk and Blues Night, and Drakkar Sauna and Illinois John Fever will perform. Thursday is the Dance Party and DJ Showcase Part Deux, with Phaseone, DJ Invisible Cola and DJs Neil and Greg taking the stage. Sadat X (of Brand Nubian) and Dudley Perkins perform Friday on Hip-Hop Night. The last night, Wave Night, has three, count’em, three bands going: Boogie Boarder, Darlings and Spelling Bee.

You don’t need me to tell you this, but it’s going to be a blast. Wash. U. kids get in for free; others pay $5. And remember that you have to be 18 or older to board the ride. Otherwise, it’s all systems go, so make sure to check it out. For more information, visit
