Don’t miss your weekly fix of local music! We’re digging through our crate of past performances to bring you our favorites at 414 Live’s regularly scheduled time.

Thursday, May 28 we’re excited to share our 414 Live archive with Direct Hit! Stream online or through your smart speaker, or listen on-air at 88.9FM.

Direct Hit! turned up the volume from start to finish at our Walker’s Point Studios for 414 Live. After a long year of touring, the opening of their venue X-ray Arcade and the release of “Crown of Nothing,” we were able to get the group in the studio after a successful, jam-packed year.

The band discussed their humble beginnings, how they got a record deal with Fat Wreck Chords and their many road stories per their extensive touring history doing runs like “the entire country in one trip.” They’ve had many fruitful experiences on tour including parting the seas of screaming 13-year-old girls for another band to load their gear, getting booked by a homeless man who just happened to be near the phone when they called, and getting locked in a squat in Italy for accommodation and fed food from the dumpster. “I love touring, it’s the coolest thing ever.”

While touring is on hold, listen to the live energy from this archived session.

414 Live is presented by MillerCoors and Milwaukee Bucks with support from Sparrow Collective and Weather Tight Corporation
