While attending GWU I sort of lost faith in college radio—chalking it up as a breeding ground for obnoxious buttoned-up Clear Channel hopefuls and a forum for giggly dorm-sex talk shows. But I guess that stuff only applies to my alma mater.

American University’s WVAU College Radio is up to some cool stuff, particularly this weekend when they will host a free show at Kay Spiritual Life Center featuring awesome LA punks Mika Miko and D.C.’s own Apes.

Here’s the full line-up and address information.

MIKA MIKO- newwave/prepunk/courtesyphone from L.A.
PRE- U.K. noise rock on Skin Graft Records
APES- experimental garage from D.C.
THE SUBJECTS- indie rock from Brooklyn on Pretty Activity Records

Kay Spiritual Life Center
American University (Tenleytown/AU on the red line- courtesy shuttle to campus)
4400 Massachusetts Avenue NW Washington, D.C.

Did I mention that this is free?
