* Local DJ Wick-It the Instigator — who, according to The Black Keys, did “an awesome job” at that Keys/Big Boi mash-up a few months back — is giving away 39 beats for absolutely free. Says Wick-It, “In the spirit of spring cleaning, I gathered up all the beats I made but never used in the last few years. These are for rappers and DJs to use for a mixtape, a show, or for freestyling … whatever.” Click this link and the whole smorgasbord is yours. I'm gonna go ahead and call the collection Enter the Wick-It (39 Chambers). [Via Break on a Cloud]

* At 6 a.m. on April 28, Rice University's KTRU will transfer their signal to the University of Houston — U of H intends to use the frequency to broadcast "classical music and arts information" — thus marking the demise of yet another college radio station. College Broadcasters Inc. is organizing a "national minute of silence" at noon (CST) on April 28, and they want "[their] membership and those who have benefited from college radio to join [them] in the effort." In their announcement, the CBI noted the "pending sale" of Vanderbilt's WRVU.

* For a minute, it looked like PUJOL was going to open for The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion at Exit/In on April 29. Turns out they're not. The good news: JSBX is still playing Exit/In on April 29!

* Local outfit The Nudity is new, and they have a single called "CASSINGLE" that you can hear right now. The Nudity describes the track as "tropical goth," but I'd say it falls in the same sort of dark electro-pop territory as Phantogram (who's playing Nashville on June 16). By the way, The Nudity is opening for Maserati at The End on April 28. [Via WOTT]
