2008 Free Yr Radio Concert Series

posted by on April 22 at 13:42 PM

Eric already mentioned this show in his earlier No Age post, but here’s the official press release about the Toyota/Urban Outfitters sponsored Free Yr Radio Concert Series:

After celebrating the launch of the second year of the Free Yr Radio campaign at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX, in March, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. (TMS) announced today details about this year’s Free Yr Radio program—including some of the bands slated to perform in the upcoming concert series as well as this year’s partner radio stations. Created in 2007 by Toyota Yaris and Urban Outfitters, the Free Yr Radio campaign equips its partner independent radio stations with tools to increase exposure and listener support through various promotional activities—including the free station-hosted concerts.

This year’s concert series will consist of 10 shows, from May through October. Each concert will be hosted by a partner independent radio station. Although each show is free, concert-goers must present an invite upon entry. Invites can be printed at www.FreeYrRadio.com prior to each concert.

Seattle’s installment (being hosted by, of course, KEXP) is July 23 with live music from No Age and Mudhoney. More details to be announced soon.
