Beginning Friday, Oct. 3, four local bands will be a part of UTA Radio’s annual Rocktober concert series. Performances will be held at noon each Friday in October in the Central Library Mall.
The bands include Lindby, DayWaster, Svenny Baby and Dead Beat Poetry. Lindby has direct ties to UT Arlington, with four out the five members being graduates from the music department. “This will be kind of a homecoming for us, “ said Lindby’s Nick Goodrich.
Friday is also College Radio Day, which aims to “raise a greater, international awareness of the many college and high school radio stations that operate around the world by encouraging people who would not normally listen to college radio to do so.”
UTA Radio, part of the Department of Communication, has participated in College Radio Day since its inception in 2011.
