Sarah Blacker

Sarah Blacker

Sarah Blacker is more than a friend and fan-favorite at WERS, she’s a kindred spirit. Her new EP Perfectly Imperfect is being sold on her website for a name-your-own price starting at $7. Moving up from that, fans get all sorts of thank you gifts from a skype-songwriting lesson to an in-house concert. This kind of […]

The Other End of the Phone

The Other End of the Phone

Live Music Week has officially kicked off and donations are flying in from supportive and dedicated listeners like you. We love hearing your stories and taking requests, but often times listeners don’t get to hear about the people taking down your requests and donations.

Futurity

Futurity

One would not expect that the Lisps were a group for an SRO pre record when they first walked in to the studio. Two of them yielding guitars, one a bass, one on drums, and a female co vocalist, with a tambourine thrown in. They are an experimental rock band first and foremost. When they […]

SXSW 2012: A Matter of Songs

SXSW 2012: A Matter of Songs

  Songs matter. A week ago when the WERS team heading out for Austin, Texas we anticipated warm weather, good music, and some 6th Street foodcarts. We came back with that fairly simple but important message: Songs matter. Everybody has their press kits—or more accurately bandcamp.com urls—beards, and cowboy hats at the ready, walking 6th […]

Digging Through The Crates #2

Digging Through The Crates #2

For the past six months or so, all I have been listening to is 90s music. Some borders onto the earlier 2000’s, but for the most part all I listen to is 90s music because to put it bluntly, the 90s were WAY BETTER. The music then was much more original, raw and depressing (I […]
