Each Thursday morning on Radio Milwaukee we — the Journal Sentinel’s Piet Levy and 88Nine’s Jordan Lee — talk about the music coming into and the music coming out of Milwaukee on Tap’d In.
Last week we talked about the return of live music at venues around Wisconsin, including several big Turner Hall Ballroom shows. Those were ultimately canceled, but for people starved for live music, there’s another option this weekend: a drive-in concert series in Grafton.
Kapco’s Live at the Lot series started in June, and so far the series has mostly featured local acts, as well as Thompson Square, a country duo from Nashville. Piet was at one of the early shows and enjoyed himself. “I was pretty impressed with how it all went down,” Piet says, “Everyone stayed in their car. They had security there to make sure everyone maintained their distance.”
“It felt pretty nourishing, to be able to see live music again after so many months of not being able to do anything like this,” Piet adds.
And now the Live at the Lot series is returning with bigger names, from Lee Brice to Beatlemania. Popular local acts like The Prince Experience and The Docksiders are on the schedule as well.
