The Beets Bring Their Beat to Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 24, 2011) — The up-and-coming New York City band The Beets are coming to Lexington on Friday, Feb. 25, to promote their new record, "Stay Home."

In 2009, The Beets were named one of the "eight New York bands you need to hear" by The L Magazine. The Beets describe their own music as “garage, ghettotech and rock.” They will be joined by Trailblazer, the local synthesizer-driven one-man act created by Coleman Guyon, and local rock band 30 Century Men, which features Case Mahan, Dan Burton and Paul Eldred of The Butchers.

The concert is sponsored by WRFL, the University of Kentucky’s college radio station, and will take place at Collexion, located at 111 1/2 E. Loudon Ave. in Lexington. WRFL-sponsored shows highlight interesting and creative cultural activity in the state of Kentucky. Doors open at 9 p.m. and admission is $5. There is no minimum age to enter.

Since 1988, WRFL has promoted alternative music, thought and ideas in the greater Lexington area. The station prides itself on playing music that is not heard on traditional commercial radio. WRFL is completely student run with a director’s staff that is made up entirely of current University of Kentucky students. With DJ’s made up of both college students and city volunteers, WRFL is one of the few radio stations in the country that broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year without automation.
