WXDU "Cuckoo Mash" with Phatlynx, Dirtybeats 

When: Sat., Oct. 30, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: Free

If the revolving cast behind WXDU's Who's Got the Cuckoo program had a DJ crest, it'd be an elevated EEG reading stenciled over a bed of strewn-about 45s and compilations. When a show specializes in garage, early rockabilly and other wonderfully primitive forms, the songs tend to last two minutes—lots of action, little time for straightening. To celebrate both the show's fifth year on the air and Halloween (the garage rocker's holiday of choice), Cuckoo DJs Xiane, Stephen and Nick will spin spooky tunes from the '50s and '60s between sets from Thee Dirtybeats and Link Wray devotees Phatlynx. Heart rates will soar. —Rick Cornell
