Disorientation 2009

Boston is no doubt a college town.  And WFNX, the alternative college-centric station, and the Boston Phoenix, the alternative college-centric weekly paper (both owned by the same company) welcomes back the student population every year with their Disorientation concert. While the format, cost and location changes from year to year, a few things remain the same – this is a great opportunity to hang out with other college aged students, listen to some of the fringe rock that tends to bloom out of Boston and get out of the dorms and into the clubs.  And while this year all of the concerts are free – they are also 21+, so typical freshman age folks need not (cannot) attend.

disorientation-2009-owl-citFor Disorientation 2009, each concert takes place at Lansdowne Pub at 9 Lansdowne St, starting at 7PM.  While admission is free, RSVPs are required, with two nights already sold out as of this posting. The roster of talent coming through is as follows:

Monday, October 5 ~ Wild Light and Dearly Beloved [RSVP here]

Tuesday, October 6 ~ Owl City – SOLD OUT

Wednesday, October 7 ~ Matt and Kim – SOLD OUT

Thursday, October 8 ~ White Lies [RSVP here]

Friday,  October 9 ~ White Rabbits and Black Joe Lewis [RSVP here]

Getting on the RSVP list is one thing, but these events typically over-book to help guarantee a crowd, so entrance is limited to club capacity.  So if you want a guaranteed in, get there early.

Folks are already tweeting up the shows at #DisO – so even if you can’t make it down to a show, you can certainly join the conversation.
