Free Wave Riot


As Media Bridges Celebrates their 20th Anniversary, Cincinnati Prepares for a New Addition to the Local Media Soundscape.

Cincinnati, Ohio - August 21, 2009 - On September 5th, Media Bridges, Cincinnati's community media center, will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary. For the past two decades, this local nonprofit has been providing Cincinnatians with the means for making their voices heard by creating their own media. Through the provision of free equipment and free classes, Media Bridges has enabled local individuals and organizations to produce documentaries, television shows, radio productions, websites, and other types of electronic media.

The celebration will culminate in the FREE WAVE RIOT, a live concert starting at 8pm at the Know Theater in downtown Cincinnati. Featuring performances from local musicians IsWhat?, the Tigerlilies, Fourth Letter Gang, J. Dorsey Blues Revival, Losanti, the Frankl Project, and Culture Queer, proceeds from the event will help Media Bridges in their efforts to launch WVQC-FM, a low-power FM station featuring local content.

WHAT: A celebration of Media Bridges' 20th Anniversary, as well as a fundraiser for the launch of 95.7 WVQC: Radio Free Queen City. Tickets are available at mediabridges' website $9.57. Tickets also available at the door.
WHERE: The Know Theater, 1120 Jackson Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202.
WHEN: September 5, 2009, 7:30pm-Midnight.
