The Avett Brothers at Innsbrook Snagajob Pavilion 7/20/2012

Almost a week ago now, I had the chance to see ever-energetic and delightful Avett Brothers perform in concert. I had yet to see them live, and after hearing wonderful things and crying over the online ticket purchase only briefly, I was able to see them in all their bearded glory.

Despite the kind of monotonous and nap inducing opener Jessica Lea Mayfield, The Avett Brothers came on with “Will You Return” and it was like a bomb went off in the pavilion (in a good way). Everyone was dancing, even the dads in their lawn chairs with beer sloshing everywhere. It was a hot and humid night, but halfway through their set it started drizzling slightly, and it was practically a scene from Singing in the Rain.

The set list in its entirety is below:

1) Will You Return
2) Traveling Song (slow)
3) Down With The Shine
4) Love Like the Movies
5) January Wedding
6) Salina
7) At the Beach
8) Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise
9) Live & Die
10) Laundry Room
11) Sally’s Lover
12) Ballad
13) Closer Walk
14) The Fall
15) Colorshow
16) Go to Sleep
17) Kick Drum Heart
18) Slight Figure Of Speech
————-
19) Please Pardon Yourself (slow)
20) Paranoia
21) And it Spread
22) Talk on Indolence

This band is amazing because whenever they play their songs live, they always seem to change some of the lyrics. After stalking the forums on the band’s website after the show, I even found some live recordings so all of you avid fans can watch for yourself. Included is the recording of their new song “Live and Die” set to be released on their new album which comes out in September.

Will You Return

Down with the Shine

Live and Die

Just A Closer Walk With Thee

Please Pardon Yourself

WDCV 50th Anniversary-Alumni & Homecoming Weekend Updates!

Hello WDCV Alumni!!

Thanks again for filling out WDCV’s alumni survey and keeping in touch!  We wanted to update you on our plans for our 50th Anniversary festivities.

Dickinson College’s Alumni Weekend is just around the corner (June 8th & 9th) and today (May 25th) is the last day to register for the weekend.  WDCV will be holding a few events including a live broadcast on Britton Plaza Friday June 8th from 1-3pm and an Open House Saturday June 9th from 1-3pm.  We will be showcasing our vast archive of images, newspaper clippings and other memorabilia we have collected from WDCV’s last 50 years.

It’s not too late to share your personal collection with us!  Please email if you have anything you might want to donate to WDCV or make a copy for us to have.  If you are coming out for the weekend, bring your stuff along and we can try to make copy while you are here!  If you know of any WDCV alums that haven’t connected with us, please forward this on to them too!

We are hoping to connect with a few of you attending from the class of 1962.  We are celebrating 50 years right along with you and thank you for helping to get WDCV started!

No worries if you can’t make it out for Alumni Weekend because this is just a warm up to our big plans for Homecoming Weekend (September 29th).  We are hoping WDCV alums will connect with each other and plan to come out in groups.  We have heard such great stories through the alumni survey and we want to here all of the details of your time at WDCV.  Mark your calendar because here is what we have planned:

 

  • Live Broadcast from the Football Game
  • Sports Broadcasters Meet and Greet at Biddle Field
  • Live Broadcasts on Britton Plaza

Wine Walk Broadcast

Pat Craig Stuidos!

On Saturday April 28, WDCV will be broadcasting live from the Wine Walk hosted by the Pomfret Street Merchants!  We will be playing fabulous music outside of the fabulous Pat Craig Studios, and talking to folks joining in on the Wine Walk.  The Wine Walk entails tasting wines and snacks at different stations in downtown Carlisle.

It also entails having a freaking blast.

It should look something like this...

WDCV Benefit Concert

If you didn’t know by now you will soon. WDCV is having an awesome benefit concert this Saturday April 14th. There are going to be raffle drawings if you bought tickets at any of the live on Britton Plaza events. Secondly there is also another nice prize for anyone who said they were going to attend on Facebook and attends the event, so kudos to another potential winner. The event starts at 7:00 p.m. and the following bands will be playing: Charlotte, Synergy and Wild Horse. Run With It will also be making an appearance so be sure to check them out too. There will be plenty to snack on and lots of loud music so be sure to stop by. In reality, the more the merrier.

Most importantly, by attending the event you will be supporting an honorable cause. Money raised at the even will be used to help build a well in Tanzania. The township does not have the resources to collect clean water and this could give them a big hand.

Live On Britton Plaza: It’s Going Down!

The folks at WDCV are busy raising money for a well in Africa this month. The township does not have access to water and the development of a well would solve this problem. The Live On Britton Plaza events take place on Monday and Wednesday, and this Friday there is a grilled cheese and movie night! So here’s what you folks of Dickinson College and Carlisle have available at a normal Live on BP. You can purchase raffle tickets for awesome prizes such as jewelry or a gift card for the Clothes Vine. The are also artsy “bowl shaped” objects for sale as well as splatter painted spin art. Also available are buttons and we even have a bin of cd’s you can check out. Therefore all you folks out there should check in with us on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:30-12:30.

Awesome Local Shows

Sometimes you don’t have to drive all of the way to Baltimore, Philly or NYC to see a good show.  Some are happening rather close by.  Check out these upcoming shows at local venues.

The Almost-Acoustic Showcase of Musical Talent!

THIS SATURDAY, November 12th, WDCV is crazy-excited to present…

The Almost-Acoustic Showcase of Musical Talent

What is it, you ask? How would you feel about an all-night, 100% free concert featuring five, count ’em, FIVE kick-ass bands? Because, that, my friends, is exactly what it is.

You’ll hear from Wild Horse and Video 54, two bands comprising current Dickinsonians and resident Carlislians.

You’ll hear from Trunks and Tales, a one-man acoustic troubadour from Harrisburg.

You’ll hear from Scott Pine and the Conifers, indie goodness from Bethlehem, PA

And you’ll hear from the ever-popular Ton Taun, the official partially-bearded band of WDCV.

And it’s all for free and free for all THIS SATURDAY.

Doors open at 7 pm  at The Depot, the show kicks off at 8 pm. There’ll be great music, cool people, light refreshments, WDCV merch, and an awesome atmosphere. Free and open to anyone, Dickinson students and non-students alike, so bring your mom! Bring everyone, because it’s going to be a damned good time.

 

Here’s how it’s gonna go down:

7 pm: Depot doors open

8 pm: Video 54

8:45: Scott Pine and the Conifers

9:30: Wild Horse

10:30: Trunks and Tales

11:00: Ton Taun

 

You can pick up some WDCV swag, merch from the artists, plus water and lemonade. But the show itself is totally free.

The Depot is located on the Dickinson College campus right next to the Kline Athletic Center, on Cherry Street in between High and Louther Streets.

It doesn’t get any better, and it doesn’t get any cheaper, so we hope to see you all there! Until then, rock and roll and don’t lose your cred!

 

With much love,

All your favorite folks here at WDCV
