Benefit for WFMU with Pipe, Thomas Costello, Wool, Ryan Gustafson, Snack Attack 

When: Sat., Dec. 22, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $6-10

A week after Hurricane Sandy rolled up the East Coast, slamming into New Jersey and New York, WFMU—the venerable and zealous donation-supported radio station in Jersey City—was still off the air. The storm damaged their transmitter and surrounded the station with rising water. "WFMU was literally on an island," station manager Ken Freedman told The Star-Ledger. WFMU is back on the air, but as North Carolinians know, real storm recovery is a long-term and high-dollar process. Tonight, three bands—the pugnacious and proud Pipe, the new Wool and the newer Snack Attack—join primo Chapel Hill songwriters Ryan Gustafson and Thomas Costello to raise money for both the station and Red Cross. From Tom Scharpling's FM brilliance to the station's fantastic Beware of the Blog, WFMU is an American arts institution, and they could use your $6–$10 cover. —Grayson Currin
