Wednesday, February 4th, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

If you were weaned on 70s-brand hard rock and 80s metal, you'll appreciate a great band like Night Bitch. From New Haven, CT, these guys render solid, bottom-heavy, testosterone-fueled metal, with outstanding original songs like "Chainmaker" and "Disrober," and choice covers like Deep Purple's "Into The Fire" and Blue Öyster Cult's "Cities on Flame." Their sound recalls everything from the aforementioned rock legends, to later bands like Danzig and Candlemass. With a brand new 10" about to drop on Ajna, NightBitch drive their muscle-car metal straight into the main courtyard at My Castle of Quiet. Turn left just past the dungeon stairs.

Dunk Tank
Wednesday, February 4th, 8pm - 9pm
Infinite Distortion
More of a question than an answer, Western Massachusetts' DUNK TANK take public humiliation and the exploration of total ego death to unprecedented heights. A mixture of minimalist free jazz exploration, funk-punk explosion, and beyond no-wave psychedelia, DUNK TANK is like taking a resin hit in a dark basement during the apocalypse.

Midnight Matinee: "Groundhog Day"
Saturday, February 7th, Midnight - 3am
Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
The Inflatable Squirrel Carcass is happy to announce that John Schnall’s Midnight Matinee will be returning to the WFMU airwaves on Saturday, February 7 at midnight to celebrate that greatest of American holidays, Groundhog Day.

Topography of the Spleen
Tuesday, February 10th, 3pm - 6pm
Brian Turner's show
Top form trio improvisation live on Brian's show today to celebrate legendary guitarist Henry Kaiser's residency at The Stone. Kaiser, who has been putting out a wildly diverse musical output since 1979, has played solo and with a stunning variety of musicians including Derek Bailey, Richard Thompson, David Lindley, Jim O'Rourke, John Oswald, and Fred Frith. In the last decade he's also dedicated a great amount of time deployed as a research diver in the Antarctic and has provided underwater camerawork to two Werner Herzog films to Oscar-nominated acclaim. Today on air, drummer Weasel Walter (Flying Luttenbachers/Cellular Chaos and currently of Lydia Lunch's Retrovirus) and saxophonist Chris Pitsiokos join in, playing as Topography of the Spleen; catch this lineup live also February 5th during Henry's Feb 3-8th Stone stint (located on Avenue C and 2nd Street).

Les Sans Culottes
Wednesday, February 11th, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

It's said that French is the language of love, so why not spend the Wednesday night before Valentine's Day with the plausibly French rock et rollers Les Sans Culottes? They'll be bringing their melange formidable of Dutronc, Duchamp and Dubonnet to the WFMU studios on Wednesday February 11 at 9pm, so be sure to tune in for some faux français fun with Brooklyn's enfants terrible de la musique! You can also catch them live at the Rock Shop in Brooklyn on Friday February 27 avec les Zambonis, and their latest album, The Gods Have Thirst, is out now on the band's own Disque Escargo-go label.

Put on your best beret, tear off a piece of baguette, and tune in to The Evan "Funk" Davies Show on WFMU Wednesday night, February 11 at 9pm for this très spécial soirée.
