WEVL Turns 30 

No radio station supports local music as much as community station WEVL-FM 89.9, and this weekend at the Hi-Tone Café, an enticing variety of local rockers and DJs are returning the favor at a benefit concert celebrating the station's 30th anniversary. Recently reunited instrumental-rock faves Impala (pictured), who released an excellent career-spanning collection Night Full of Sirens in December, will show off their brew of surf guitar, drag-strip-ready rock, and slinky R&B. Singer-songwriter Harlan T. Bobo, creator of the instant cult classic Too Much Love, will break hearts. Inventive music makers Robby Grant (aka Vending Machine) and Snowglobe's Brad Postlethwaite will bend guitar-based alt-pop into something new. And soul DJ Buck Wilders will pull it all together.

WEVL 30th Anniversary, 10 p.m. Saturday, March 4th, at the Hi-Tone Café, $10
