Hello world! We’d like to introduce ourselves–we are Pop Workgroup.
Pop Workgroup meets in WOBC station HQ twice a week (T+TH 7-8pm) to listen to the music the station receives which is “Pop” songs. All are welcome! We have fun do dancing and make memories that will last our whole lives until we die. This week we added the following CDs to the WOBC Pop Vault.
Tim Kasher – Adult Film (Saddle Creek)
Washed Out – Paracosm (Sub Pop)
Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City (XL)
Jacuzzi Boys – Jacuzzi Boys (Hardly Art)

Congratulations to Oberlin College third-year, Casey Silverstein on winning our online giveaway and snagging a pair of free weekend passes to VIA Music & New Media festival this weekend in Pittsburgh!
In its fourth year, VIA festival is an annual week-long celebration of people who are defining what’s next in music, art, and culture. Starting today, Oct. 1st, and ending on Oct. 6, VIA will feature performances, screenings, video game installations, 3D body scans and more. The lineup includes some great acts – some of whom have recently played shows in Oberlin including Slava, Container, Unicorn Hard-On, Richard Pinhas, and Aaron Dilloway.
Check out some tracks from VIA artists below and head to http://via-pgh.com/ for more information.
VIA Festival will also feature work from visual and performance artists such as Casey Jane Ellison, LaTurbo Avedon, and many more. So if you’re looking to get out of town/looking for a good time/ looking for an excuse to go to Pittsburgh, grab some friends and head out to VIA. You can buy tickets here.
