WMNF may be without a general manager and still reeling from the drama-filled firing of its founding news director, but that’s not stopping the nonprofit community radio station from celebrating its 42rd birthday responsibly.

Anyone who wants to see songwriter Dylan LeBlanc work through Renegade, his best album to date, must wear a mask, be two-weeks fully-vaccinated before the show or provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours before the gig.

If that’s all just too much for you to do, WMNF is streaming the entire gig for free on its HD2 channel.

WMNF Birthday Bash: Dylan LeBlanc w/Rebekah Pulley. Saturday, Sept. 11, 8 p.m. $20-$40. Hough Hall at Palladium Theater, St. Petersburg. wmnf.org
