Wash U's Student-Run Music Fest KWUR Week Starts Tonight

Mykki Blanco and Pictureplane share a stage at The Gargoyle Friday night.

This show is co-sponsored by the Social Justice Center, as Mykki Blanco highlights gender roles, feminism and queer identity through a powerful stage persona. Blanco's presence turns the event into a chance to connect with deeper issues, but Pictureplane's whimsical beats give the crowd an opportunity to get wet -- metaphorically speaking, of course.

The Gargoyle doesn't serve alcohol, ensuring a different context than many might be used to when seeing rock or dance music. With the exclusion of liquor, KWUR week puts the focus where it belongs: the music. The concerts are curated by KWUR, but the committee takes suggestions from executive staff, DJs and directors for different genres within the station. The string of shows is a communal effort to highlight what's happening in and outside St. Louis.

All four concerts are open to the public, but only two are free. Both Klassical KWUR shows, on Tuesday and Sunday, take place at 560 Music Center and are free of charge. The rock and electronic showcases, however, cost $10 for the general public and are hosted by the Gargoyle. As always, anyone with a Wash U ID receives free admission to any event.
