So you’ve come to KXUA.com for more information on KXUA’s Local Music Appreciation Day

Here's more information you were hoping for!

Our Local Music Appreciation Day/ KXUA's Local Music Palooza will be held Sunday April 17th at Georges Majestic Lounge on Dickson Street. It's planned to begin at approximately ~6:00pm with Fayetteville's legendary folk punk guitarist Gnarlos playing songs off his top notch album Gnar Bomb, which you can find at gnarlos.bandcamp.com and below.

Next up it'll be the University of Arkansas's very own Trumann Rail Boys! They'll feature a standup bass, a banjo and fiddle! A classic Arkansas brewed blend of beautiful bluegrass! Led by Keefer Roach these cats will begin sharing their music around 7:00.

Following The Trumann Rail Boys, it'll be KXUA's own Cody Nielson with his fantastic recording project known as Moonsong! You can find his music on Spotify and moon-song.bandcamp.com. Cody's been a musician longer than many people born after 1999 have been alive! Moonsong is scheduled to begin around 8:30 or 9:00. (We all know how these things go!)

Topping off our set of very talented Fayetteville musicians is the one and only Bob for Apples headed by... Bob! Feel good chillaxed rock and roll is the name of the game and holy cow will it be great. bobforapples.bandcamp.com and you guessed it.. that's Bob on the cover!

The door is $5 for non KXUA DJ's and free if you are a KXUA DJ, pants and shirts a plus.. Possibly required, certainly suggested.

After we cover the cost of the sound man for the night.. 100% of the revenue will go to support these local musicians and their art.

Come on out for a great time, support local music, and meet the 68 KXUA DJs that make our station what it is... Great!

Whats that?! Gnarlos recorded almost his full album Gnar Bomb at KXUA?!

That is correct. The rumors existing on the radio late into the night are all true. It happened.. It was awesome. The man, the legend, the musical experience known on these streets as Gnarlos reappears in KXUA's mythical recording studio to grace us with an explosion in our earholes. Ears further tenderized by a guitar, but marinaded in the sweet and barbequey goodness that is folk punk a la Taylor Ogden.. listen, enjoy, and bask in the sound..
