Are you ready to hear about an important show lined up? Of course yesterday we told you about how the plug was pulled on WQNA 88.3 fm community radio as we know it, however fundraising will continue. Well, there is a benefit event going on TONIGHT at Buzz Bomb Brewery, so get on over to that (more info right here). Then on Friday, December 13th we have our own benefit show happening at Dumb Records to go towards the cause of continuing community radio in Springfield! Proceeds will be going to Springfield Community Broadcasters.

Who do we got playing? Epsom is at the top of the bill, a band we all know is going to rock. The newer local duo that is grade-A quality music, Idle Oath will be playing as well. Idle Oath features Mark Beanblossom who was a DJ on Thursday evenings on 88.3 WQNA. Stream some of their music on the player below. We also have Snuff Rider lined up… instrumental heavy surf band… but guess what, they have changed their name to SONIC MAXIMIZER. We can hardly handle that new name, sorry the flier above isn’t updated. Opening things up is Arlin Peebles and Erin Steinhauer! A duo that you all know and love from The Studio show.

That show starts at 7:00 pm, and for admission we are asking donations of at least $5 to go towards the cause. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page to see what else is coming up at our space in the near future.
