State of Sound: Social Cig
Social Cig has been bouncing around the Milwaukee music scene for just a couple of years, but the self-described "indie-skate-rock" outfit is firmly established in the city's growing lineup of excellent bands. It's a trend that's impossible to ignore — so much so that the Pabst Theater Group invited four of those groups, including Social Cig, to take over Turner Hall Ballroom for an all-Milwaukee showcase Aug. 25.
As they ramped up to that groundbreaking night, Social Cig joined us for this episode of State of Sound to give everyone a chance to get to know the band — from frontman Parker Schultz's family influences to their bedroom foundation. And of course they treated us to a four-song set that was just a taste of what the city's music fans will hear at Turner Hall at the end of August.
