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!

Yiddish Glory tells the remarkable story of folklorists in the Soviet Union who risked their lives collecting songs from Jewish Red Army soldiers, Jewish refugees, victims and survivors of Ukrainian ghettos. Following the war, the researchers were arrested by Stalin; their work was confiscated, and they died thinking the collection was lost to history. But the songs were later discovered in unmarked boxes stored in the basement of the Ukrainian National Library, and brought to life through painstaking research, for the first time in 75 years.
