on
Dance With Me, Stanley with Stashu
Tune in for the 2nd Edition of Borshty Talk with Borshtwyn (Stashu) and Jim the Pierogi (Micah of Music of Mind Control) for a special exposè on everything you ever wanted to know about pierogis and more. Calls are encouraged.


Wimps
Wednesday, August 22nd, 9pm - Midnight
on
The Evan "Funk" Davies Show
Seattle's Wimps return for their third appearance on WFMU, and coincidentally their third album has just been released! It's called Garbage People (Kill Rock Stars), and you've never seen three people look happier when surrounded by literal garbage than Wimps do on the cover of this album. Wimps play catchy, trashy, funny punk songs about subjects including (but not limited to) bees, procrastination, birthdays, and O.P.P. No, not *that* O.P.P. — they're talking about Other People's Pizza (but only if it's cheese). Don't miss Wimps live on The Evan "Funk" Davies show Wednesday night, August 22, at 9pm!


Uni
Sunday, August 26th, 8pm - 10pm
on
Gaylord Fields's show
Grandiose and flamboyant in sound and style, the band Uni (pronounced OO-nee, as in the Japanese delicacy consisting of the gonads of some poor unfortunate sea urchin) grace WFMU's studios for the first time. Judging by the glam-art-psych-pop-grunge-rock splendor of the group's discography of four singles so far, expect them in this live performance to rip it up like they just don't care and then superglue it all back together, like the good-bad but not evil boys and girls they ultimately are.


The 10th Annual Evan "Funk" Davies Show Disco/Dance Party!
Wednesday, August 29th, 9pm - Midnight
on
The Evan "Funk" Davies Show
Is there a better way to close out the month of August than getting down with three hours of classic dance and/or disco jams from the '70s and early '80s? No, there is not. You can count on EFD to just be good to you, and he's been stockpiling newly acquired 12-inches in addition to the classics you wait for every year. Hook up the disco ball, pull the rug back, and tell the downstairs neighbors to go out to the movies (or just invite them up!). It all happens Wednesday night the 29th at 9pm on WFMU!


Rinde Eckert
Friday, August 31st, Noon - 3pm
on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Writer, composer, performer and intense presence Rinde Eckert will play live on Miniature Minotaurs on August 31. Over the last four decades, Eckert has worked with such luminaries as Paul Dresher, Steve Mackey, Paola Prestini and the Kronos Quartet, while mounting numerous award-winning theatrical productions of his own. The Natural World is Eckert's first completely solo album. Writing, singing and playing more than a dozen instruments, the powerful performer has delivered a surprisingly personal and melancholy record. He'll perform songs from the new album and talk about the creative process and his New Jersey roots.


Mike Pace
Sunday, September 9th, 3pm - 5pm
on Burn It Down! with Nate K.

During the mid-aughts, as the guitarist and singer for the late, great Oxford Collapse, Mike Pace helped bring a wry, yet nonetheless anthemic and heartfelt, take on first-wave American indie to a New York City scene that, at the time, seemed unable to imagine such a thing could exist. With his excellent solo project, featuring an on-again/off-again backing band called the Child Actors, Pace takes his songwriting to a new level, moving away from the punk underpinnings of his old band in favor of a more elaborate, classically sparkling pop sensibility and recalling the likes of ELO, Warren Zevon, and Todd Rundgren, among others, in equal measure. Mike drops by Burn It Down! on September 9 for a solo set of songs from his new album Smooth Sailing.
