Atlanta`s Masquerade -- the Venue That Will Not DieDespite previous announcements to the contrary, the Masquerade will continue to operate at its current location on North Avenue for the immediate future (at least through September). We have updated the concert calendar to reflect the old location for dates through mid-October.

06/06/2006 -- Twenty-Four Hours of WREKageYep, WREKage made radio history and took over the WREK-FM airwaves for a full twenty-four hours on this, the most special of days for metalheads worldwide. We started up at midnight and continued all day Tuesday, June 6th. Check out the playlist!
If you are interested in acquiring any portion of this broadcast, or all of it, contact Paul C. via the "About WREKage" page.
This was only preceded by the multi-day airing of the entire Merzbox CD collection a few years ago. Some claim we did it because three days of Merzbow was just not enough.
This plaque hangs in the WREK-FM lobby!
