|Yes, that's the free-form station of the nation featured in the Wall Street Journal!|
Among other things, the storm forced cancellation of WFMU's 2012 weekend-long record fair, a big fundraiser held every October. The station previously held a kind of mini-fair, and is holding another one—and a concert—Sunday at the Bell House.
From WFMU's website:
This Sunday, January 13th, WFMU is hosting a Mini-Record Fair and blowout benefit show at The Bell House in Brooklyn! The fair happens 11-5pm (no admission after 3pm due to space constraints), and at 7:30 we'll be kicking off a night of music mayhem with Arrington Di Dionyso of Old Time Relijun, followed by the Dot Wiggin Band (of the Shaggs!), the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and Texas psych/gospel dynamos The Relatives! Jonathan Toubin spins and Chris Gethard MCs! Tickets for the Music Benefit at this link here, and more info below.It should be quite an extravaganza for music lovers. It's eminently affordable, and it's all for a good cause to boot. And the PATH trains are even back to nearly full service, if you're coming from out WFMU way in New Jersey (though it seems the Hoboken/World Trade Center line will be suspended; check PATH schedule here).
Tix are $10 for the fair (tickets at the door only) and $20 for the concert, with advance tickets for sale here!! All proceeds benefit WFMU in its post-Hurricane Sandy Recovery.
The fair and concert are both separate events, and the inner hall will be cleared out at 5pm to reopen for the show at 7:30. Set times:
7:30 Arrington Di Dionyso
8:10 Dot Wiggin Band
9:00 Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
10:00 The Relatives
