5 things to do this weekend | September 21st-24th

640 546


Twin Brother + Abbey Jean + Dramatic Lovers

Milwaukee’s Twin Brother is a band re-imagined. Fronted by Milwaukee native (and my buddy,) Sean Raasch, Twin Brother has been playing indie-inspired folk rock in town since 2012. The band released two records, 2013’s self-titled release, and 2014’s Swallow the Anchor, which drew a lot of praise and earned Twin Brother headlining club gigs across town as well as opening slots at Turner Hall for several national acts. However, not content to be a band pigeonholed in the ever growing alternative country folk scene, Raasch and longtime bandmate (and 88Nine’s session engineer!)Lodi Broekhuizen retooled Twin Brother, adding new members and expanding the band’s sonic repertoire. 

With up and comers Abbey Jeanne and Dramatic Lovers opening the show there’s three great reasons to get there early and stay till the end!

Friday 8pm @ Walker’s Point Anodyne Coffee ($10)
