Free Yr Radio, a campaign designed to generate awareness and support for independent radio stations, will hold a concert at Urban Outfitters in the Gateway on September 24 with Canadian indie rockers Tokyo Police Club scheduled to perform. The time of show is TBD. Proceeds will benefit KRCL.
Free Yr Radio will also release a benefit compilation album with tracks by all participating artists (other cities featured performances by Dan Deacon, White Williams, !!!, Mudhoney, No Age, Secret Machines and Yeasayer), and all proceeds will be divided evenly by the participating stations.
There's hope for the future of independent voices, even if it means involving corporate tie-ins.
