FRIDAY July 27: We are the Willows, Bone & Bell, Pioneer, Phox

doors 7:30
music 8:00 sharp

"Miller has a voice that is reminiscent to Joel Thibodeau of Death Vessel, as it sparkles with ambiguity and a sweet, buttery topping, offering these tender sentiments like the steam from a life-preserving cup of morning coffee, on a morning when you can look out the window and see that everything's frozen solid." - Daytrotter

BONE & BELL (chi)
"Epically chill bump inducing... These are the beautiful doldrums, or the spooky leftovers from something mysteriously charged that make you sit still and soak it all in." - Daytrotter


"Dynamic ripples of Jacqueline Kursel’s cello rise and fall over Monroe’s wandering chord progressions, as his low, quivering croons float across the top. From the seasick waltz of “In Summertime” to the neo-folk sweetness of “I Like You,” it becomes clear that Monroe has still found a voice of his own within a crowded genre." - The Onion AV Club

ART: July 12-20th, Thomas Zickuhr & Sam Johnson

Thomas Zickuhr:
Inspired by graffiti, cartoons, and a post apocalyptic landscape, tomz. blends neon glass with painting, sculpture, and a sarcastic belief that we will not be ok.
He has had his work on the walls inside cities such as Denver, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison. He currently resides in a bomb shelter under the streets of capital city with his wife, two dogs, two cats, two fish and a irradiated frog.

Sam Johnson:
Over the past 9 years Sam has produced hundreds of screen-printed gig posters and set up numerous art events in the Madison and Milwaukee area under the name of Firecracker Studios. Currently living as a jet-setting world traveller he makes his way from place to place by taking his suitcase for a walk as often as possible. Sam ALSO has two cats but no fish.
