Jan. 27 Benchwarmer Inspired by such greats as the Pixies, Bad Religion, and Man or Astroman?, Benchwarmer sets forth haunting guitar parts and dischordant bass lines that often stray from one another to create their own distinct melodies. Combined with downright brutal drums, benchwarmer explodes from danceable Clash-esque rock to a super-charged punk onslaught.

Feb. 10 Legion of the Incredibly Strange Superheroes Featuring WRCT's own Zombo. Retro rocket rock and roll that is supercharged with surf/garage roots rock.

Mar. 10 Adams and The Blackout NO DANCE NO DANCE NO DANCE. Alternately droney, twee, and volcanic, Adams and the Blackout cite the influence of the early-80s New York and early-90s Norwegian undergrounds.

Tune in and listen to Clownie Blackout's attempts to trans-channel our 17th-century spirit guide, Jeffrey Hudson
