This Monday November 29, Live from the Fallout Shelter on WUML 91.5FM will be hosting local band Empty Phrases as they play a live set in our studio! This four piece indie-shoegaze group hails from the mean streets of Lowell and even includes WUML members and UML students, so we are extra excited to have them!

Going the DIY route that so many bands from the Lowell area have gone, they have released their first EP for free download at their bandcamp music page. When I first listened to these guys, their music made me feel like what I can only imagine it would feel like to fall off a cliff and never hit the ground. Soothing and relaxing, at the same time canceling out all of your other problems. Empty Phrases is definitely for fans of Rx Bandits, Pavement and Minus The Bear.

You can hear them on Live from the Fallout Shelter on WUML 91.5FM this Monday November 29 from 8 - 11pm, with their set starting at 930pm followed by an interview and the best in underground punk, indie, folk and whatever else played before and after their set.

On Monday November 22, Live from the Fallout Shelter on WUML 91.5FM will be hosting the one and only Dan Blakeslee as he plays a live set in our studio! Dan hails from Somerville, MA but has frequented a few venues right here in Lowell. Dan is an acoustic singer-songwriter who plays very creative folk songs and has been compared to Johnny Cash, Echo and the Bunnymen, Jeff Buckley and Tom Waits. Actually, following in the footsteps of Johnny Cash's Live at Folsom Prison recording, Dan has played and recorded a set in front of a houseful of murderers and felons at Laconia State Prison. His eerie yet enchanting songs combined with his engaging live performance make Dan a true American Renaissance man.

So tune in this Monday night from 8 - 11pm, with Dan going on at 930pm and the best in underground punk, folk and indie spun by the shows DJ's before and after the set as well as an interview with Dan Blakeslee himself.
