Just a few months ago, WFMU held an online auction to raise a little extra cash, and some items we offered were a tad unconventional. Congrats to all auction winners, and thanks to everyone who placed a bid! Extra thanks to Stephin Merritt, DJ Monica, Todd at Maxwell's, and Yo La Tengo for making dreams come true!
If you're in northern NJ, be sure to stop by Maxwell's in Hoboken this Sunday (Jan 16th), for Auction Winner Angel's curated show, featuring Mattress and 4 other bands. The event serves as a launch party for Angel's new website Joydropper, dedicated to fun happenings in NJ.
And speaking of Maxwell's, we've got video footage of Auction Winner Jason expertly performing "Astral Plane" with Yo La Tengo during one of the band's coveted Hanukkah shows.
Check out Auction Winner Aimi, sipping tea with none other than Stephin Merritt!
