The Central Wave, Forsyth Central High School's online radio station, will play host to a performance by power-pop band Junior Doctor on Thursday.

The show, which is set for at 5 p.m., is free and open to all Forsyth County students.

Austin Hollis, a senior in the class, said the performance will be limited only by the size of the school's auditorium, which has about 500 seats.

The Central Wave received the offer for the free show through a promotions company, Hollis said.

The performance by Junior Doctor can also be a learning experience for students interested in the music business.

"The students are able to interact with the band afterward and ask questions about the music industry and how they can get started," Hollis said.

Students can R.S.V.P. for preferred show seating at The Central Wave's Web site, www.fchsradio.com.

According to its Web site, the four-piece band, which hails from Cocoa Beach, Fla., formed in 2007 after three members met in medical school.

They later left school to pursue music and gained a fourth member.

Junior Doctor has released an EP with producer Matt Goldman, who has worked with bands including Cartel, Underoath and Anberlin.

Junior Doctor, which released its first full-length album in January, is touring schools and malls across the Southeast.
