Thursday, Jan. 12, Majestic Theatre, 8 pm
With the state’s recent political track record being, shall we say, less than stellar, it’s encouraging to witness Wisconsin’s growing punk scene. Some of our best bands will channel their defiance by rocking this festival, headlined by Madison’s own Masked Intruder (pictured). With support from Arms Aloft (Eau Claire), Tim Schweiger & the Middle Men (Milwaukee), Jaill (Milwaukee), No Hoax (Madison) and Static Eyes (Milwaukee). Come on out, and up the punx!
$10. Doors 7 pm. Wisconsin Punk Fest.
A lot of things make Wisconsin great. We could write a novel about it. But we are a music venue, and showcasing the diverse musical artistry that comes pouring out of our state makes us more proud than any beer or cheese ever could. We are expanding our annual “Wisconsin Fest” series to include Metal in 2017, as well as Funk, Hip-Hop, Punk, and Bluegrass. Five nights dedicated to celebrating prolific Wisconsin artists in five unique genres that are all proud to call our state home. Take a chance on any of these nights and we promise you’ll be impressed by what you see and hear. Come out and show some love for the music that helps shape our culture. Also we will have BEER (and whiskey and other things)!
We support great bands AND great causes here in Wisconsin, so we’ll be donating $1.00 from every Wisconsin Fest ticket to our friends at Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.
