Who Even Listens to WMCN?

Who even listens to WMCN? Few people know that Macalester College Radio has been an active force in the Mac-Groveland community since the 1930s. As the smallest free-form  radio station in the Twin Cities, WMCN celebrates all kinds of programming; everything from kitschy dance music to crusty punk to radio memoir. For one night, Thursday, February 21, we’ll bring together some of our favorite bands to create a mini-music festival with 5 bands from Macalester and the greater Twin Cities area each playing a short set. Bands scheduled to perform:

Bad Bad Hats
The Velveteens
Is Home Is

The festival will also feature art from Macalester student groups, including screen printing, photography, painting, a half-time poetry slam, jewelry, and prose. This is an arts and music festival you won’t want to miss!
