Meet the artists in our May lineup for 'State of Sound'
We were absolutely thrilled to launch State of Sound last month, both for fans of Radio Milwaukee and live-music lovers. Musicians from the Milwaukee area ignited the stage at our Walker's Point studios throughout April, and we can't wait to show you what's to come in May.
Before I get to that, a couple big thanks:
- To Broken Bat Brewing Co. for coming on board as our sponsor and offering their lineup of bevys for the live studio audience to enjoy.
- To the awesome organizations who shared their message and mission.
- To the four artists who helped us get things started — NilexNile and Holy Pinto, Diet Lite, Trapper Schoepp and Felix Ramsey. Click any of those names to relive their episode.
We're excited to elevate the listening experience even further in May and keep making connections with you. Whether you're looking for great live music from across Wisconsin or a place to grab a beverage with friends, come see us every Thursday. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the performance starts at 5:30 p.m. If you can't make it in person, you can listen live on the 88Nine airwaves and streaming on our website, our app and your smart speaker.
Peep the May lineup, invite a friend, and we'll see you Thursday.
