Anticipate: Free YR Radio and yes that is how it's spelled

*latest update on (04/15/07)*

and Urban Outfitters have teamed up again to present another neat idea under Free YR Radio and all for the good cause of spreading awareness and helping out noncommercial/college radio stations. This time it'll not only be in one city, but 12! With an ear-popping band lineup...if I may, drumroll please...Klaxons, The Ponys, Voxtrot, The Long Winters, Annuals, The Rapture, Rogue Wave, Tapes 'N Tapes, Dinosaur Jr. and a few TBAs. If you went to South By Southwest last month, you may remember Free YR Radio's spectacular launch party featuring The Rapture, The Pipettes and a set by DJ Dave P and now it's only five days away from this brilliant idea to unravel.

{Click above on the poster to save yourself from squinting.}

Your local
Urban Outfitters stores will serve as the venue for these FREE in-store events and Yaris will roll out 12 band customized cars to give to radio stations who will choose how they will give it away (ie: auctioning it off). The only exception is the first one off the calendar, in which the Klaxons will be part of WLUW's fifth annual Record's Fair. As the tour gets going, you'll be able to create and embed music videos using footage from the events. Looking ahead, Free YR Radio will mix up a CD that will released and sold exclusively through the Urban Outfitters stores for this upcoming fall season and all the proceeds will be divided evenly among their partner radio stations.

Last but not least, here's this wonderful Beatles cover from Rogue Wave, which we were introduced by the lovely I Guess I'm Floating back in February.

***The Houston show location has changed to the Urban Outfitters in the Rice Village shopping center [ 2501 University Blvd. Houston, TX, 77005 ] instead of the Urban Outfitters in the Galleria.
