SOUTH ORANGE, NJ — WSOU 89.5 FM Seton Hall Pirate Radio is helping Killswitch Engage take New York City by storm with a weeklong series of concerts presented by the legendary heavy metal radio station. As a part of its 30th anniversary concert series, WSOU presents Killswitch Engage for their five-day “take over” in New York from March 6 through 11. These five shows take place at venues around New York, including the Gramercy Theatre on March 6, Bowery Ballroom on March 7, Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar on March 9 and the Marlin Room at Webster Hall on March 10. The final concert takes place in Brooklyn at Rough Trade NYC on March 11.
“Killswitch Engage by far is one of the best live shows I’ve seen,” WSOU Program Director Molly Meller said in a release. “It is an honor to be presenting them for their Incarnate NYC takeover. I know our listeners and the band’s fans cannot wait for the new album and this series of New York shows.”
WSOU’s 30 Years of Metal anniversary concert series kicked off Feb. 20 with Brooklyn’s own Candiria at Maxwell’s Tavern in Hoboken, performing with Old Wounds and Moon Tooth. Additional shows in the concert series will be announced throughout the year.
“2016 is a year of milestones for WSOU,” general manager Mark Maben said in the release. “Just as we wrap up our celebrations of the 50th anniversary of our sports call-in show ‘Hall Line’ we move on to celebrating the 30th anniversary of our current loud rock format. WSOU’s listeners and staff will have a lot of events to revel in throughout the rest of the year.”
