WFMU

On the bill, Holland's legendary avant-punks the Ex, playing live as an expanded 10-piece and joined for the first time in NYC by Ethiopian saxophonist Gétatchèw Mèkurya. If you need even more dazzling news, Lincoln Center added two amazing East African/American collaborations to the bill: Either/Orchestra with Mahmoud Ahmed and Alèmayèhu Eshèté, plus Extra Golden. Thanks to the New York State Music Fund grant that enabled WFMU bring in the Ex and Getatchew, we've also been beefing up not only the forthcoming Free Music Archive, but also have obtained some new equipment to augment the station, and that's been resulting in some more great live broadcasts. So this week, we couldn't be happier to announce that this event now will be going out on WFMU's radio and webstreams as well! If you can't make it to the Park (no advance free tickets this time, so we recommend getting there as early as you can), you can tune in at home and be transported via our mini-Addis-on-the-Hudson on August 20th.
