WBAR-B-Q 2011: Fresh Tunez & Uzbek Kebabs
Written by Bwog Staff
Make the most of the fact that it’s not raining and that you couldn’t go to Coachella by attending our very own music festival! All fans of free food, sick up-and-coming indie bands, and sitting on the (Barnard) lawns should check out the 18th Annural WBAR-B-Q, student-run radio station WBAR’s outdoor barbecue and new music festival. All the action begins at 3 on Barnard’s Lehman Lawn and continues until 7pm, when it switches to an indoor concert/rave in the Diana Event Oval from 7pm to 11pm. There better be glow sticks. Headliners include Real Estate, whose debut album Pitchfork deemed worthy of their “Best New Music” list, and The Crystal Ark, a new project from Gavin Russom, the guy who played synths for LCD Soundsystem’s live shows. Here’s the full line-up.
Diana Event Oval:
If you’ve never heard of any of those bands and have no idea what they sound like, check out this handy mixtape, which features a track from each band. Even if you don’t care for the music, you should check it out for the free food. Really. Bwog has learned that Kosher Uzbek kebabs are being shipped into WBAR-B-Q from Cheburechnaya, the kebab-holic paradise in Queens.
And if you really love free food, double up today at the Muslim Student Association’s Spring Picnic, which starts at 2pm in Riverside Park and features even more free barbecue and giveaways.
