VuHaus Live Streams from 18th annual NON-COMMvention May 15 to May 18

Updated: Jun 18, 2018




Spring in University City means it’s time for the Non-Comm convention, the annual WXPN-FM (88.5) gathering of mostly non-commercial, frequently National Pubic Radio-affiliated stations who come together at the World Cafe Live to watch a couple of dozen cool bands in three days of music showcases.


It’s sold out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t see it.

Non-Comm, which used to continue into the weekend, is now a mid-week event that kicks off on Tuesday night with a staggered schedule of showcases (there’s no overlap) both up and downstairs at the WCL. Along with inside-baseball meetings with the public radio programming muckety mucks during the day, there will be three Free at Noon concerts running Wednesday though the closing event mid-day on Friday.


Non-Comm has always been a tough ticket. Passes to the sold out event mainly go to conventioneers, and those that are left over are quickly scooped up by XPN members. The good news is that the entirety of Non-Comm will be broadcast live on the University of Pennsylvania radio station. And if you’re in front of a computer, tablet or your phone, you can watch on VuHaus, the NPR video streaming service, which will also be showing the entire itinerary.


(Also, for those who are shut out but desire to see some of the Non-Comm acts in the flesh, a number of them are playing other gigs around town this week. Barnett, Low Cut Connie and Hop Along have shows at Union Transfer, Carlile is at the Merriam Theater on Friday, and Mt. Joy plays the Foundry on Saturday.)
