On the List | Magmafest does Cockpit, Metro open house, Smash Putt opens, BadWill Market Spring Edition

Magma_Fest_Cockpit_3.20_show_posterThe eighth annual Magmafest wraps-up at the end of the month, meaning there’s just a handful of opportunities left to support the fundraising effort for the Central District’s Hollow Earth Radio.

On Friday, the Oakland-based experimental trio Religious Girls are headlining a show at the Cockpit. Organizer Adam Way says the show will be one of the most raucous of the month-long festival.

The event comes as Hollow Earth is ramping up for its recently acquired low power FM license from the FCC, and the opportunities, growth, and challenges that it has created. Specifically, raising a “ridiculous” figure to pay for an expensive new transmitter and antenna to broadcast Hollow Earth’s wide range of community programing.

“It allows people who wouldn’t be heard anywhere to be heard,” Way said. “If Hollow Earth was a person, they would have a heart of gold.”
