Saturday, November 14th: Linneman’s Riverwest Inn – The 5th Annual Kneel 2 Neil Fundraiser for WMSE and The Bridge School, 8PM:
For the fifth straight, a group of dedicated Milwaukeeans have gathered great local music talent to honor the legendary work of Neil Young. Each band or musician performs 2 – 4 Neil covers and all the proceeds of the evening to go benefit this great radio station as well as the Bridge School, an organization Young has heavily funded since 1986.
This year’s line-up features a mix of new-to-the-scene songwriters and Milwaukee veterans. Here’s the full run-down:
Lisa Gatewood (8:00pm)
Andy Brawner (of Time Since Western) (8:30pm)
The Aimless Blades (9:00pm)
The Carolinas (9:30pm)
