WRVU DJ Night, Tomorrow at Betty's

Posted By on Wed, Jun 15, 2011 at 8:00 AM

Care to start your morning off with a bit of mourning? As this week's forthcoming Scene cover story will thoroughly outline, WRVU recently handed its broadcasting license over to WPLN. While some protesters maintain that the changeover isn't completely set in stone, one thing remains certain: WRVU will never again exist as it once did.

So what were those of us in Nashville who care about discovering new music robbed of? Well, some quality community DJs, for one. Local noise musician, online-noise-tabloid creator and Betty's Bar and Grill honcho Leslie Keffer sends word that tomorrow, June 16, Betty's will play host to a gaggle of former WRVU DJs, who will spin wax and CDs (and digitally spin some MP3s) while commiserating and celebrating what 91.1-FM once was. The lineup will include sets from Pete Wilson of Nashville Jumps, Laura Powers of Needles + Pins, Roger Blanton of Delicious Elixir, Sam and Kelly of Penguin Parade and many more. You can see the the complete lineup after the jump or over at Laura Powers' Needles + Pins site. The funereal festivities (not an oxymoron in this case) will kick off at 6 p.m. and stretch until 2 a.m. ... or whenever Keffer decides to pack it in and close up shop, though I'm guessing she's in it for the long haul.
