Subrise Ocean Bender

This is not Mr. Atavist, though Mr. Atavist was instrumental in creating the playlist, so it shouldn't suck.

Activate! August 27 - September 3

If you tune in at 5pm, you are almost guaranteed to hear a band that piques your interest, then you can go see them perform live in Richmond! If you didn't catch them during Commonwealth of Notions Presents, Manzara (pictured) have another show lined up this week as part of a screening for the psych flm The Astrologer. Plus, I'll give away tickets to see metal bands Kylesa in Charlottesville and Earth at Strange Matter!

August 27th, 2015 (A New Season Begins - Episode One)

Good Afternoon,

I have to start by saying an enormous thank you to everyone who supported this year's WRIR and The Commonwealth of Notions Presents. The fifth volume of the festival was a lot of fun and I'm already excited to see how the sixth will pan out. For now, I am going to take a page from the Never Not Funny book and refer to today's episode as the first episode of the new season of The Commonwealth of Notions. Enjoy!

As Always, Thanks for Tuning In and Supporting All Things Local!

The Fifth To Last Horsehead Nebula

This is The Fith to Last Horsehead Nebula.  Afterwards, there will be four left.  The show ends September 24th.  Each forthcoming show is going to be... especially special.  Tonight, the show's occasional tradition of sound-blending is taken to its logical conclusion by producing one last two-hour-long, unintelligible mess.  Should be fun!

Next week: INHERENT VICE
