Are you a fan of music discovery? Do you like Black Sheep Burrito drink specials & free noms? Do you want to find out the lucky winner of the Charleston CVB Wilco contest? If you answered "yes" to any of that, boy, do we have the perfect party for you!
Join us for #WhyListen, a first listen music party and music conversation from West Virginia Public Broadcasting & NPR Generation Listen on Thursday, February 4 from 6-8pm at Black Sheep Burrito & Brews in Charleston.
Listen to new music from West Virginia and beyond & chat it up with our music panel Larry Groce (NPR's Mountain Stage) and Joni Deutsch (West Virginia Public Broadcasting's A Change of Tune) and John Inghram (Charleston bassist/producer/songwriter). Enjoy complimentary treats and lovely drink specials from Black Sheep Burrito & Brews. Find out who won tickets to Wilco's sold-out Valentine's Day show. And get ready for music swag and surprises!
Still don't know what to expect? Check out our last #WhyListen event in Huntington and scroll down this page for some event pics. (Spoiler alert: it was awesome.)
The February 4 event is free and open to the public (and all ages!), but space is limited. RSVP's are required on whylisten.splashthat.com.
