This Saturday is Record Store Day!!! We want you to get out there and support some brick and mortar record stores in Milwaukee that help keep the music culture in our city alive. Here is a list of all of the record stores that we encourage you to visit this Saturday. We also encourage you visit them all of the time, not just on Record Store Day. This guide will give you an idea of the personality of each record store.
SWEETALK (Green Bay) play dynamic, emotional modern rock
OCEANS OVER AIRPLANES (Crown Point, IN) add some wild spaciness to their crushing, rhythmic brand of emo
50 BREAKS (Waukesha) play a fuzzy, garagey variant of post-hardcore, with disaffected vocals and tweaked-out guitar weirdness
MISS SHEVAUGHN & YUMA WRAY (Paso Robles, CA) combine bittersweet Laurel Valley songcraft and Joan Baez/Joni Mitchell vocal textures with a lovely slowcore backing band
DOGHOUSE FLOWERS play Americana soaked in whiskey and toughened by the many lessons of life...think Old 97s, Jayhawks and Drive-By Truckers
