Kaleidoscope

Wednesday, 8 - 11pm

Every Wednesday night Juliet Fromholt talks to musicians, filmmakers, and artists from the Miami Valley and beyond and more often than not, you're treated to a set of music performed live in the WYSO studios.  You'll also hear some of the best music from emerging artists and old favorites from around the world. 

Local bands Duderus and DipSpit both infuse humor into their music so the two groups are teaming up to release a split album in September.  The two bands visited the WYSO studios to talk their collaboration and the upcoming release show with Nightbeast.

Duderus and DipSpit will release their split album on September 12th at Canal Public House.  They'll be joined on stage by Nightbeast (who's also releasing an album that night) and Andy D.
