WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to present a new season of Radio Free Culture, a weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts. 

In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, current Director of the FMA, spoke with Jacob Nathan about a long-running art and performance space called AS220 in Providence, Rhode Island, where he serves as the Live Arts Director, setting up shows, doing audio recordings, and helping artists find space to perform. AS220 has been around since 1985 and boasts a long and storied past - and a promising future.

AS220's Winter Sampler

Album artwork by Andrea Santos

The year ending can be melancholic—the passing of time, the memories, the promise of the future, bleak weather. It’s not quahogging season any more kiddos, you better have a space heater in your houseboat. If you are fretting, AS220 is here to help with this Winter Sampler of some of the warmest acts to have played within our hallowed walls. It’s suggested that you listen to this Winter Sampler under a comforter that you have fashioned into a childlike fort while drinking hot cocoa with a peppermint stick stirrer. If these items aren’t available to you just close your eyes, listen to the sonic wonder, and let your imagination run buckwild and free. This is the final sampler of 2013, so now you can download the complete set of them and feel one with the Rhode Island music scene.

Atlantic Thrills - Acid Rain

At this year’s AS220 Foo Fest, Atlantic Thrills brought out a giant piñata of a donkey that was filled with flour and trash. It was torn apart in a matter of seconds and everyone coughed as though the thing were filled with mustard gas. To make up for the mess they offered me moonshine. It was apt. Now, a few months later, the Thrills have an even better offering off their self-titled full length coming out soon on Almost Ready records. They are then going on a fat lil’ tour to follow the release.

Malportado Kids - Mi Concha (EP)

On a day that will forever be known in infamy as “Malportaday,” the bi-lingual duo of Victoria Ruiz and Joey Defrancesco, otherwise known as Malportado Kids are releasing their first mixtape today. Their stripped down, baille and dancehall infused brand of electronic politico-punk is even more resuscitative than shoving your face in a tub of coffee grinds and starting a riot. When’s the last time you felt empowered by a full arsenal of samples? Bite into this lil’ sample of the EP with these hefty cuts, “Soy La Pocha” and “Fuego.” Prepare to feel despot dispatching power surges. If you are so inspired—go see them on tour this month and learn that the revolution will be caked in glitter.

The rest of this killer EP can be downloaded at their bandcamp.
