WIUX will be having its pledge drive, or annual fundraising week, from Oct. 15 through Oct. 20, with an event each night on campus or at a local location.
WIUX, IU’s largest student media organization, has been around for more than 50 years with two radio stations: 99.1 FM WIUX-LP Bloomington and B-Side Internet Radio. Both stations run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to its website.
Among the events will be painting and live music with Secret Mezzanine, a local band with two current IU students as members. The event will start at 6 p.m. Oct 15 at the WIUX station in Franklin Hall. There is a suggested donation of $5 for a canvas and painting supplies.
There will be poetry slam at 6 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Pourhouse Cafe. The slam will feature poet and IU student Luma Khabbaz, and an open mic for poets to perform will follow her set. There is a suggested donation of $3.
Another open mic night will begin at 7 p.m. Oct. 18 at the WIUX station in Franklin Hall, with a suggested donation of $3. Attendees are able request a performance time on the event’s Facebook page.
WIUX’s pledge drive week will finish with an all-ages event at 8 p.m. Oct. 20 at Upland Wood Shop Sour Brewery with a concert featuring Spazzy D, Rex Avant and Branden Fresco. Presale tickets are available for $7 at the WIUX station in Franklin Hall. Tickets purchased the day of the show will be $10.
