It's called Lawrence Community Radio -- that's KAWR -- and they're having a coming-out party at Liberty Hall to raise funds to help cover the cost of the station's projected start-up budget. KAWR will begin broadcasting over the internet after completing its studio, and they hope to be on-air by June of 2012. Help 'em out by going to see these bands: Lonnie Fisher and the Mobile Spirits, Vera, Chuck and Dave, Uncle Dirtytoes, Rachel Anderson, The Late Night Callers, Ricky Dean Sinatra, Tinhorn Molly, Dismantle the Virus and Spooklights.
The event is on January 22, and it's $7 to $10, and all-ages. There will also be Loaded for Bear: A New Comedy Show from Some of the Writers of Victor Continental, a Felt Puppet Show, and the KAWR DJs. Check out more at KAWR's website.
