wcbn fm chart may 30, 2016

This past weekend was the first Trip Metal Fest in Detroit, and I hope it becomes an annual thing because it was truly incredible. It was a free event but I donated anyway because it was totally worth it. The highlight was definitely Hieroglyphic Being with Marshall Allen and Danny Ray Thompson of the Sun Ra Arkestra, which might be the best show I've seen all year. Other favorites included Morton Subotnick (!!!), MV Carbon, Panicsville, Cotton Museum/Ape Technology, Pod Blotz, Viki/Magas, Shades, Andrew WK/Nate Young/Twig Harper, etc. 
There's a ton of other shows coming up soon that I'm looking forward to this and next week: The Orb, Jandek, Ultra Mega Awesome Extreme 9, Matchess...
