Barnard College Radio WBAR has just announced the lineup for WBAR-B-Q, the 18th edition of its annual concert and outdoor barbecue! The staff are pretty hyped about it, calling it “the most spectacular WBAR-B-Q ever.” From 3 to 11 pm on Friday, April 15, you can expect lots of free food, games, and giveaways on Lehman Lawn and in the Diana Event Oval. There are gonna be two shows (i.e. double sickness): one outside on the lawn in the afternoon and one that night in the Diana Event Oval. Remember, attending the WBAR-B-Q is your chance to hear lots of up-and-coming performers. People may not have known about Animal Collective or Vampire Weekend when WBAR booked them to perform in 2003 and 2007, respectively, but now they’re both totally legit! That said, check out this year’s lineup with an open mind:
3 pm: “lo-fi surf rock”
7 pm: “psychedelic acid house”
- Laurel Halo
- THE CRYSTAL ARK – the second performance ever by latest project from Gavin Russom, of LCD Soundsystem.
