Here are some ideas for this weekend in Milwaukee…
MJ-UNCOVERED: A reinterpretation of the music of Michael Jackson curated by B~Free
The UNCOVERED series has been such a fascinating project; featuring Milwaukee artists re-interpreting the music of legendary artists like JDilla and Stevie Wonder with a local lens. Fittingly, UNCOVERED is closing out its 2018 season with a doozie; reinterpretations of the music of Michael Jackson and it’s curated by Milwaukee singer-producer-musician B~Free.
Each UNCOVERED performance brings together a diverse lineup of Milwaukee artists who pay their respects to some of the most important musicians of our time. In partnership with Alverno College and produced by David Ravel, UNCOVERED is good bet to be the best thing happening for music in town this weekend.
Friday at 8pm @ Turner Hall Ballroom ($22.50)
Fruit Bats & Vetiver
Although 414 Day is the heart of the weekend events, there’s an excellent show at The Back Room at Colectivo on Thursday night as Fruit Bats and Vetiver swing into town for an intimate show. Not only that, Fruit Bats and Vetiver will perform together on one stage — an indie-folk match made in heaven. Their entanglement is even deeper however as each artist will be performing one another’s songs for a unique collaboration.
Thursday at 8pm @ The Back Room
