Noise In Brief, Sept. 16: Scottie B’s Baltimore, Barn Aid, Record Store Love
Here’s a new mix from soon-to-be ex-Baltimorean Dave Nada on Dissonance radio in Washington D.C.–Diplo-style world-dance stuff, judging by the tracklist.
Barn Aid, a benefit festival of quality local talent such as Wye Oak and the Celebration side-project Birdland, has been moved from Springfield Farms in Sparks to the Golden West, and from Sunday to Monday, Sept. 20. The cost of the Sparks event was $50, and after “sluggish” sales, things have been condensed to the smaller-scale show, where a sliding-scale donation of $10-$15 gets you in and that donation goes to the sustainable/natural farm’s barn-related legal woes. The show begins at 9 p.m., with the Pilgrim and DJ Jason Willette on the bill as well.
Noise wonders how somebody organizes an all-day Station North Fall Music Festival (Oct. 9) and books but one local band.
