“Live at Howard’s,” a new, 10-episode series highlighting the best in live, local music premieres on WBGU-TV Oct. 12. The series looks to bring traditional late-night music-oriented programming back to local public television.

The show will air at 11 p.m. and repeat at 3 a.m. throughout the weekend on WBGU-TV. (Check your television listing for specific channel number.) Viewers can also watch online at wbgu.org.

The series is a true local production – created, produced, filmed and edited by staff from WBGU-TV and students from Bowling Green State University.      

The episodes were filmed at Howard’s Club H, an iconic bar and music club located in downtown Bowling Green. For 45 years, Howard’s has been a focal point of the local music scene, featuring bands of all genres from rock to rap, metal to country. This stylistic new series brings the essence of a gritty dive bar music venue to television viewers.  

Featured bands include Tree No Leaves, Modern Hollows, The Mechanical Cat, Indian Opinion, Discount Nostalgia, Laurel and the Love-In, Red Rose Panic, Flatline Revival, The Velvematics, Splitt Second, The Living Deads, Wild Nights, Mascots, Klashing Black, Hemi Devils and Waxtastic. (Specific episode listings are posted on WBGU’s programming schedule; clips are now available on Vimeo.)
