Local/Live: March 18 – The Midwest Beat

Sweethearts of the Milwaukee Rodeo, The Midwest Beat rides again! Sidestepping the perils inherent in being a gaggle of upper Midwestern, plaid shirt wear-ers with an ear cocked towards the Americana side of the spectrum, The Midwest Beat manages to fuse the disparate elements of punk, twang, power pop and Bakersfield-esque country rock into a cohesive attack that evokes the spirit of smart Brit chaps like Graham Parker as often as it does Graham Nash or Gram Parsons. Tune in this Tuesday for WMSE’s Local/Live to hear the newest renditions of these elements — WMSE.org or 91.7 FM at the 6 o’clock hour.
