This Saturday, Sept. 6, Trinity will be hosting a variety of bands for Radio Invasion, organized by KRTU. Radio Invasion will be a â€œsort-of-indie concert,â€ Â according to the KRTU staff.
The aim of the concert is to expand the indie influence of KRTU and provide an outlet for students to experience local bands.
â€œWe are looking to broaden the indie side of things and provide shows and series for students and the community,â€ said Joseph-Erik Montano, a senior who is in charge of the concert. â€œThere will be some high-quality local bands with lots of different sounds.â€
KRTUâ€™s indie program caters to students, not only through events like this, but also by giving students an opportunity to learn more about radio.
â€œThe indie program is mostly student-run,â€ Montano said. â€œWe host production classes and record bands in our studio.â€
Radio Invasion will be the indie programâ€™s way of following KRTUâ€™s jazz program.
â€œIn the past, KRTU has hosted lots of jazz events, but not anything like that for indie, so we decided to do a concert,â€ Montano said. â€œWe hope to make this a biannual event and host another concert next semester, or perhaps host a festival or touring bands. We are currently working on some series at a local art gallery.â€
The event will be held in the Laurie courtyard and is free of charge.
