A Cape Cod tradition continues with WCOD cooking up its annual “Chowder Fest” at the Melody Tent. It’s the recipe for a perfect day of sampling chowder from many of the Cape’s best restaurants, all competing for the coveted “WCOD Chowder Bowl.” Bring the family and spend the afternoon savoring the “souper” seaside flavor of quintessential Cape Cod, while listening some of the best bands on the Cape. Don’t miss your chance to get “bowled” over by the Cape’s choicest chowders!  WCOD, WXTK, and Cool 102 are happy to be partnered with Cape Cod Melody Tent and these incredible restaurants, yet again, for this special annual event!



Blending folk-rock melodies with blues guitar muscle and rock and roll grit, the DayBreakers have earned their stripes over four years of consistent gigging throughout New England.

The band has played many of Boston and Cambridge’s most revered rooms, sharing the stage with some of the region’s best roots rockers, such as Entrain and the Silks. The band has also performed as an opener at Indian Ranch in Webster, MA for three years running, opening for Three Dog Night, The Beach Boys, and Bret Michaels.

Brian Owens of Metronome Magazine describes the sound as “Blurring the lines between country and rowdy rock and roll, and serving up a notable jangle that’s been lacking in most modern music.”  

The band’s debut record, self-titled and self-released, received substantial CMJ airplay upon its release. Their second album, slated for a spring 2018 release, will be recorded with Rob Loyot (Entrain, Girls Guns and Glory, Sarah Borges) as engineer and producer, as well as Kevin Zahner (Bubba Hernandez, Matt Dunn, Clay Thrash) on drums.

Carlin Tripp

Carlin Tripp is a laid back folk rocker drawing from a life spent roaming this great country, seeking out rare experiences and making new friends along the way. Now settled in Boston, he devotes his time to being a father and touring musician. His songs reflect on love lost, love found and the trials and joys we all face in our day to day existence.

Tripp has played some of Massachusetts’ premier venues including Paradise Rock Club and the Narrows Center for the Arts. And has opened for nationally touring acts,  Strangefolk, Vance Gilbert, Rik Emmett, The Suitcase Junket and Jason Myles Goss.
