So prepare yourself for a special 4-hour extended edition of my monthly radio show Charlie Don't Surf from 8 PM to midnight this Friday night. The big news is welcoming two of Madison's finest bands, Echo-Static and Colony of Watts, into the WORT studios to play live mini-sets on my humble little radio show from 9 to 10 PM. Both of these bands truly put the "rock" back into "indie rock" with huge guitars and lots of energy. You can check out their respective websites here: http://www.echo-static.com http://www.colonyofwatts.com
In addition, to the live performances I got lots of new releases to drop on you from Swinging Utters, RJD2, Avoid One Thing, Bad Religion, Orange Goblin, Way Off the Horse, Dozer, Swill, Loretta Lynn, This Moment in Black History, The Soviettes, Vast Aire, Rivethead, Hot Water Music, Brother Ali, The Hellacopters, Black Cat Music, X-ecutioners and the Fourty Fives.
I also got some older shit to play for you from Patti Smith, Naked Raygun, Country Teasers, AWOL One, Dillenger Four, some anti-Reagan punk from the 80's and many others yet to be determined.
And for those of you going out to the Alabama Thuderpussy show on Saturday night at the High Noon Saloon, I got two pairs of guestlist spots to give away so you can get in free to the show like real Hollywood movie stars.
So thatÃƒÂ¢Ã¢?Â¬Ã¢?Â¢s this Friday night from 8 PM to midnight on WORT at 89.9 FM.
