Extra! Extra! Announcing the May Day Extra! Party

Rebels and music lovers, join community radio on Saturday, May 4th at 10 pm for an extended May Day! celebration of up & coming bands at an up & coming downtown venue, the Dragonfly Lounge.

The lineup boasts 3 of Madison’s hardest working rock bands: HewnThe Drain and Cowboy Winter, who have all recently released albums of original material.

The earthy, percussion-heavy sounds of Hewn were featured at the 2012 Atwood Summerfest and on W-O-R-T’s Underground Stage at the Willy St. Fair.

A few years ago, The Drain rose from the ashes of the notorious Faghat and continue to rock psych-punk quirkiness at Mr. Robert’s, the Great Dane and other underground venues.

And the heavy garage-soul outfit Cowboy Winter has appeared live on Who Cooks For You? and played to enthusiastic crowds at Mickey’s, High Noon Saloon, house parties and more.

Between bands you’ll hear great music spun by WORT DJs.

Admission is only $6 for those 21 and over and includes a chance to win door prizes from Union Cab Cooperative, House of Brews, One Barrel Brewing, Bellini’s Italian Restaurant and more! For information call 256-2001 or

So mark your calendar for May 4th, come on down to the Dragonfly at 401 East Washington Avenue, and help us make this party extra extra FUN!!
