New and renewing members are entered to win a “Night on the Town” complete with a gift certificate to Allegria Restaurant in Carbondale, two tickets to the movies at the Crystal Theatre, breakfast at the Village Smithy and a night on the couch at Steve’s Guitars. Sustainable level members and above will be entered to win a 25 pound grill package from Sustainable Settings.

David Jacobs-Strain is our headliner. Guitar Player Magazine says: “He doesn’t just rock out: he’s learned the art of crossing musical boundaries from the masters. His music has a fiery passion that’s exciting and engaging, tempered with an aesthetic reminiscent of the Pacific Northwest, where he grew up and cut his first guitar strings. Don’t be fooled by his youth; Jacobs-Strain knows what he’s doing.”

Leadville Cherokee plays Native American inspired reggae and rock and will open the show at 5 pm.

KDNK will serve New Belgium beers and margaritas and broadcast the concert live.

On Monday, August 18 at 7:30 pm we will screen the film, “The Last Waltz” at the Crystal Theater. Proceeds benefit KDNK.

On Thursday, August 21 at 7:30 we will host Carolyn Wonderland and her band at the Thunder River Theater. Admission $20 - $10 for KDNK members.

Tuesday, August 26 DJ Billy Bob Speaks and Amy Moon will take your membership pledges, pour coffee and broadcast Billy Bob’s Revenge from Dos Gringos Burritos in Carbondale.

The news department will host David Barsamian of Alternative Radio at the new KDNK Broadcast Learning Center, 76 S. 2nd Street on Wednesday, August 27 at 7:30 pm. We invite you to be part of our interactive live studio broadcast.

David will speak about MEDIA, CAPITALISM & THE ENVIRONMENT

"Sure we have Earth Day, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act and the Environmental Protection Agency. Still, the threat to our environment is acute and growing. The majority of solutions on offer, from driving a hybrid, to recycling plastic, to using efficient light bulbs, focus on individual lifestyle choices of mostly privileged people. But the scale of the crisis requires a far deeper and fundamental transformation. As global warming accelerates, carbon-fueled industrial capitalism is systemically incapable of making the necessary radical changes to protect the planet. Its insatiable appetite for profits precludes it from doing so. It is time to think about a different economic system."
