FUV At The Newport Folk Festival

The Newport Folk Festival is next weekend, and FUV is once again headed to Fort Adams State Park with NPR Music to bring you some of the sights and sounds. Our coverage kicks off next Friday, with the opening night performance by Ryan Adams. Although the prolific songwriter has a deep catalog to draw from, we're likely in for a lot of new material as Ryan is set to release a self-titled album on September 9th. Listen in and find out, Friday at 6pm on 90.7FM or online. Then all weekend long, FUV will be at Newport's main Fort Stage, recording performances and posting them to the FUV Vault.


White Hinterland Ticket Giveaway For Rough Trade On June 27

Supporting a new self-produced Clap Your Hands Say Yeah album, Only Run, Ounsworth and his recently recruited touring compadres will be at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 28 and The Alternate Side is giving away tickets to the gig.

Kins: TAS In Session

Tags: Kins

The Australian-born, London-based Kins is a guitar-pop band specializing in what its members call "the sound of doubt, detachment and muted aggression.” The Alternate Side has a soft spot for their smart single “Mockasin's" and a little earlier this year Kins visited the station for a conversation and live performance. Kins are headed back to New York, playing Brooklyn's Glasslands Gallery on June 17 and Pianos on the Lower East Side on June 18. Watch videos of Kins playing "Aimless" and "Mockasin's" in Studio A and listen to the band's full session now in the FUV Vault.

TAS and FUV: Bonnaroo Bound

Both The Alternate Side's Alisa Ali and FUV's Rita Houston are in Manchester, Tennessee for Bonnaroo coverage and although Alisa fears she packed the wrong shoes, she's anticipating a little slice of rock 'n' roll heaven via sets from Jack White, King Khan and the Shrines, Cayucas, Capitol Cities and more. On Friday night, June 13, from 7--10pm EDT on 90.7 WFUV, Rita Houston's The Whole Wide World will broadcast live from the festival too, also streaming online.

Courtney Barnett: FUV Live At Electric Lady Studios 2014

During this episode of FUV Live, Australian rocker Courtney Barnett and her band perform a live concert at Electric Lady Studios for an audience of WFUV Marquee members. The set featured songs from her album The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas. Watch Courtney playing "David" and "Avant Gardener" with her band and listen to the entire concert here.

Morrissey Cancels Balance Of US Tour


Morrissey has cancelled the balance of his US tour, including a June 21 date at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. According to a statement, the tour's curtailment is due to a "respiratory infection" that the singer says he developed in Miami on May 31 and an "acute fever" that required a hospital visit in Boston following his show there on June 7. Via a longer missive on Morrissey's fan page True To You, where the singer frequently communicates with his fans, he blames his frequent opening act, Kristeen Young, for passing on the illness, a claim which Young denies.

The Alternate Side is a proud part of WFUV Public Radio from Fordham University,
