10 years ago Ricardo Wang brought his orphaned late night experimental music program to a permanent hope in the weekend daytime of KPSU, Portland’s college radio.
Now a decade later What’s This Called? is a KPSU institution and to celebrate this exciting anniversary Ricardo has put together a non-stop party as part of Nofest 8 at Slim’s in St. John’s, all for free!
The party starts from 4-8 PM with an All Ages showcase of eclectic artist from around the Northwest, several who incorporate child and youth members in their lineups.
Then from 8 to close Slim’s goes 21+ and the free experimental music keeps coming from Linnton’s godfather of drone Jeremy C. Long through the always mind warping words of Jennifer Robin to Bellingham, Washington’s subversive beat master Fischkopf Sinfoniker.
12 different acts at Slim’s on Lombard and that’s just one of several Nofest stages on September 12th! Ricardo will also be hosting cellists Jen Grady and Derek Johnson at noon on What’s This Called? to preview their sets at the anniversary show.
KPSU presents What’s This Called? for ten years and counting!
