Milwaukee’s concert scene has a lot going on, so we look at the shows coming up to find the ones you’ll look back on and be glad you went. Then we add them to our weekly Milwaukee Concert Picks.

In case you haven’t been paying close attention to your calendar, this Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day. For a certain segment of the population, that means pint-upon-pint of Guinness and/or a green version of a domestic brew, followed by … all of the things that usually follow that.

Whether you’re joining the revelry or steering cleer, you can’t go wrong by filling the days prior with high-quality live music, especially something slightly low key in advance of the Paddy madness.

Vivarium’s got you covered with two upcoming shows, the first of which brings Sir Chloe to the East Side this Wednesday. The project helmed by Dana Foote last played in Milwaukee at a lovely performance space in Walker’s Point, where she shared three songs from most recent album I Am the Dog and her rapid ascent from retail to touring musician. She’ll undoubtedly rattle off a longer set this week, with Philly singer-songwriter Daffo opening up the night’s music.

Two days later, the focus shifts to the local scene and the long-anticipated release of Sleepy Gaucho’s True Love Corridor. Milwaukee native Andy Goitia has been kind enough to loop in 88Nine several times during the run-up to the new album, including a Milwaukee Music Premiere of single “Strawberry Moon” and a spot in the very first lineup for our State of Sound concert showcase last month.

This Friday, he’ll unveil the entire LP with help from fellow locals Ellie Jackson and Moonglow as the doors open at 7 p.m. for an 8 p.m. show.
