WCBN Presents: Girlpool

WCBN Presents: Girlpool at the Bling Pig on April 19th.

The music Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad release as Girlpool occupies a transient space. Their constant evolution makes it perfectly impossible to articulate exactly where their project falls within the contemporary musical canon; this is one of the many reasons Girlpool’s music is so captivating. -- ANTI Records

WCBN and Ann Arbor Film Fest Screening of Two AM

We are partnering again with the Ann Arbor Film Fest for a screening of Two AM on March 29th at 9:00pm in the Michigan Theater's screening room. Here is a description of the film: Two A.M. (Loretta Fahrenholz) is a hallucinogenic fairy tale about peer-to-peer surveillance. Based on Irmgard Keun’s 1937 novel After Midnight, which narrates the rise of the Nazis from a young woman’s perspective, Two A.M. fever-dreams its way through a world of shifting desires, telepathic voyeurism, and ritualistic mind control, while exploring new ideas of post-cinema. Make sure to come out and use our discount code AAFF57_WCBN for this particular screening. See you there!
