WIDR rocks for Habitat

May 12, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- WIDR, 89.1 FM, the non-profit, student-run radio station of Western Michigan University, is sponsoring its annual benefit show for a local non-profit organization Thursday, May 22, beginning at 9 p.m.

This year's WIDR AIDE concert will benefit the WMU student chapter of Habitat for Humanity and will be held at Kraftbrau Brewery, 402 East Kalamazoo Ave, Kalamazoo. There is a $5 cover charge for the event.

WIDR has organized a unique line-up of bands, headlined by Pilot Scott Tracy, a frenzied, synth-rock band, featuring former members of the Causey Way. Also appearing are Spit for Athena, a Grand Rapids area rock group, which had a CD release party May 8, and Kalamazoo-based punk band Huge Individuals.

Money raised will go toward a Habitat house to be built by WMU students in cooperation with the Kalamazoo Valley Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, as part of the 2003 celebration of the University's centennial.
