“He became this crazy preacher with gold teeth and you could go into this tent and confess your sins to him…it was really bonkers and wild.”
-Piet Levy, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
He’s doing 65 shows in all 50 states. Just because. It’s gonna be a wild, crazy show. He’s from the Twin Cities so he has a large fanbase here in the Milwaukee area.
On the opposite end of the music spectrum, Lydia Loveless is doing a show at the Backroom at Colectivo on Prospect. There are a lot of shows going down at the Backroom — it has almost become like a full-time venue. Loveless has a lot of acclaim behind her. She has some warm reviews about her new music. This will be a full show — there are two opening performers.
Echo and the Bunnymen will be here a week from today, September 15 at Turner Hall Ballroom. Noteworthy show — they haven’t played here in over 30 years. With this group, shows in Milwaukee are very rare. Their music has made a big impact on a bunch of other artists. This’ll be a great show.
