April 2, 2009 : Cause & Effect : MACRoCk

This weekend, starting tomorrow, marks the start of another MACRoCk Festival held at JMU in Harrisonburg, VA. This April tradition began in 1997 and it put together by the University's radio station (student run) WXJM. The fest includes a variety of shows happening each night in several different venues but includes several other aspects ranging from a label expo to panels relating back to indie music.

For full details about this year's fest including band set time's and show locations go here.

Maybe it's just me but this year's collection of bands playing the fest seem to be especially Virginia-centric so we thought it might be a nice change of pace for our radio show to highlight some of our favorite groups playing MACRoCk this year, many of whom are local to our region.

Tonight's 7PM - 9PM set will include songs by: Eternal Summers, Antlers, Slingshot Dakota, Algernon Cadwallader, Just Die, Young Widows, Cinemasophia, Medications, Josh Small, and as the saying goes....a whole lot more.

Listen the old fashion way on your dial at 97.3 FM or at www.wrir.org
