Riverwest Fest III is here! I will be playing a solo set on the 22nd round 3pm at People’s Books Co-op & then as Animals In Human Attire right after at Jackpot Gallery. Assume to be bothered by me the day of the show, considering that both venues are right next to Fuel Cafe & are both all ages.
US MALE will be playing our first full band set the day before (Dec 21st) at Uptowner with Sat Nite Duets. Brady on drums fools! Its bound to be a hell fire & fit fight.
“Nod To Bob” is a Bob Dylan tribute show hosted once a year at Linneman’s for the benefit of Hunger Task Force. Charity, Dylan, music: all agreeable topics! Jim Linneman was kind enough to ask Caley, Jack & I to be apart of the night performers. It was an amazing experience getting to be apart of the evening & shareing the bill with some of Milwaukee’s finest. Rae Cassidy even made a visit from the East cost for tune! We met tons of great people & ate many a turkey sandwich (provide by Jim & Marty) It was a lovely way to spend Thanksgiving with my Mom: who I finally got to see me perform… to a bunch of people watching. A million thanks you again to Jim Linneman for letting us play. Thank you Jim!
Practicing up some Dylan tunes for next Wednesday. We are taking apart of Linnemans “Nod To Bob” on the 21st (the day before Thanksgiving) Its a benefit show where a bunch of Milwaukee peeps get together & cover some Bob Dylan tunes. Its looking to be a good night & aside from us, a ton of sick bands are playing: Jupiter Tar, The Form, & more. Come out & join the grey hairs!
Here is something that is worth your time! We are hosting a BREADKING show in collaboration with our good friends, Mine All Mine aka MAM (but you would already know about them if you read this blog wouldn’t you?) John, Cory & Tom are all in Pushmi-Pullyu: a rather side Madison group & our guest for the night.
Lucy Cuke’s is really Caley & Tim with Rob Weiss all combining their song craft for killer three piece group. Solo songs, new stuff, good shit
Thanks everyone who came out last night to Funtv’s gallery night at Jackpot. What a night of true Riverwest goodness. So many faces of love & friendship for the cause of art. My favorite pic of Nellie’s Cupcakes would have to be the standard: chocolate. though Strawberry was in the running for a bit. Anyone miss our Zelda set? if so, what the fuck… no worries. We will do it again soon. Though Al is telling me I’m going full drum kit next time. Oh shit, I have to practice music now!?
Also, sorry for the lack of posts. I have a new phone… so I can take instagram now! But I refuse to upload JUST intagram’s to this blog. It looks tacky & defeats the purpose of having two separate accounts. Its just hard getting muit-media band content when everyone is using their phones these days. So till then: MY BUTT
We will be celebrating Jordan Maye’s birthday Oct 10th. Come watch us kick ass at Tonic Tavern’s Local Love Live show series w/The Thriftones. Fun fact: its free & if you don’t go, Jordan will cry. Wtf man…
Join us on Sept 28 for our next full band pie explosion (music) We launch for the moon at 9pm. Launch pad location: Club Garibaldi. Manly man, The Ragadors, will be climbing trees while Vic & Gabe take candy from strangers & then later kill those strangers.
Here’s a little pic from out 3/6th Rusty set at Art Bar last night. It was a splendid evening & the pizza was scrumptious. It was the first show were I sang a duet with Caley for Volcano Song, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Big thanks to pals,Jaems Murphy’s Vedic Edenfor hosting & having us. They premiered a few of their new tunes as well, which they will be recording in the nest few months. Check into it & experiences nirvana (for your health)
