Fridge and the Spins- BEACH/TRASH Free Download -
You may remember back in February WQAQ hosted a small show in the Cafe with The Guru and Fridge and the Spin$. Well recently, besides dropping the dollar sign off their name (a decision I can’t say I fully support), Fridge and the Spins have released their first full length. It’s full of synth pop/rock goodness and includes many of the songs they played at QU in February including many new ones! So check it out! It’s FREE! It’s AWESOME.
Recommended Tracks: Bom Dizzy, Night Like Fire, God in Good Times (my all time favorite Spins track), Sarah Belle

First of all, thanks again to everyone who came out to Festapalooza last Friday! It was one of the best events WQAQ has hosted in recent history, and featured crowd surfing, beach balls, dancing, broken glasses, and first-pumping. It was magical. Not in a romantic way. But definitely in a college radio/punk rock sort of way. (Thanks also to our staff members who helped set up, and stayed to clean up until 1:30am.)
Check out the event review via Quad News here!
On Saturday, WQAQ management & staff members attended the first annual (?!) student media banquet. General Manager Kyle Murphy impressed everyone with a heart-warming speech, announced that Music Director Benjamin Goodheart had won the election for next year’s GM, and honored other managers with prestigious awards. I won “Most Hummus Consumed in the WQAQ Office.”

Many thanks to Chris Cappello!
July 10th 2010 may have been the first truly beautiful day of my life. If the previous March was the watershed month that set my life on the course that it’s been on for the past two years, then July 10th was the first real manifestation of that change. That night, Titus Andronicus played a…
