“Since their start in 2009, Sat. Nite Duets have been making the sort of idiosyncratic, heartfelt rock music that inspires a devoted cult following in their home base of Wisconsin.

“NO/NO are among a handful of Milwaukee bands making music that’s unabashedly sexy, something the city’s scene had rarely even attempted in the past.
