Hey folks!

The Columbia Beet is now booking for Fall 2014! If you're in a band or are a solo artist, have a live show booked in the Columbia area sometime this fall (August 22nd - December 19th), and are prepared to play live set on 90.5 fm, get in touch with us ASAP!

Our first show of the Fall will be Friday, August 22nd.

Be sure to keep your peepers glued to thecolumbiabeet.blogspot.com for updates to our show calendar, and tune into 90.5 fm (in the Columbia area) or listen streaming online at wusc.sc.edu!

Also, the first show of the Fall is THIS Friday! So tune into 90.5 fm, or listen online (wusc.sc.edu) from 
4-6pm this Friday (8/22)!

We'll have a live in-studio performance from the band Dreiberg and more to be announced!


Today's show will be primarily pre-recorded, but killer nonetheless!

At 4pm we'll be playing tracks by various bands that have live shows this weekend in Columbia; including Mechanical River & Shallow Palace. Both bands (and a slew of others) will be playing at Art Bar on Sunday, May 25th, as part of a Stereofly Memorial Day bash.

We'll also be listening to some songs by Two Fell Into A Foxhole who you can catch in-person over at New Brookland Tavern this Sunday.

And lastly Form and Function are playing at Conumdrum Music Hall on Sunday as well, so we'll spin some previously recorded in-studio performances from them.

At the 5 O'Clock hour, we'll listen to a pre-taped live in-studio performance and interview from the band Lowecase Gods. The band will be playing at Jake's on Devine this Sunday.

Tune into The Columbia Beet from 4-6pm this afternoon on 90.5 fm in the Columbia area. Or listen online at wusc.sc.edu.

The Columbia Beet is thrilled to bring y'all tons of great music today. 

We'll start things off at 4 o'clock with a preview of a wonderful new compilation, Mostly I Just Want to See My Friends Grow, a benefit CD for Aaron Graves featuring multiple local bands covering songs by Those Lavender Whales. We'll hear some tracks from the album, as well as live performances from Adam Cullum and Era Pope. And Shannon Donohue, the curator of this fantastic disc, will tell you all about the accompanying show/yard sale at Tapp's Art Center on May 18th!

Then at 5, Steven Patnaude from The Mississippi Kites will play a solo acoustic set! So tune in to WUSC - 90.5 FM on your dial - or stream us on the Web at wusc.sc.edu!
