[Preview: Last show ‘Till 9.12.12]

Yup, taking a 2-week break before summer ends. But fear not, tonight’s show will be jam-packed with good stuff to hold you over. Here’s some sounds we’ll check out:

We’ll preview a couple of shows coming up including the Blues Control show at Soundlab in Buffalo on 8.30, the Jason Lescalleet shows in Rochester and Albany (8.30/8.31), and the Odonis Odonis show at Mohawk Place in Buffalo on 9.5.

Also on tap: new Animal Collective, Peaking Lights, and part two of the Sax Tape that we started last week.

And finally, if we have time, we’ll also check a very special recording from 1977. Those who were interested in yesterday’s post on the Music 114: Everyday Sounds and Experimental Music course being offered by the UB music department this fall will want to tune in and check this out. You’ll find a little hint of what’s in store below.

Show starts at 9pm on 91.3 FM WBNY. Stream at WBNY.org. Also, another programming note…when the show returns on 9.12.12, we will be on at a new time from 8pm-10pm, still Wed. nights.
