The final part of WGXC's one-year anniversary weekend of events is a performance from Shearwater at Helsinki Hudson. Opening act to be announced. After 60 tickets are sold and the band is paid, WGXC gets 100 percent of the door, so celebrate one-year of community radio, and see your friends, and hear some good music.

Principal players are Jonathan Meiburg (vocals, guitar, and piano), Kimberly Burke (upright and electric bass) and Thor Harris (drums) -- all members of Shearwater since 1999 -- along with guest performers Andy Stack (of Wye Oak) on guitar, keyboard, and saxophone, Scott Brackett on keyboards, Cully Symington on additional drums, Sam Lipman on clarinet, and Elaine Barber on harp.
