Local/Live: January 16 – Abby Jeanne
Jan 16 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The product of a haunted jukebox and golden heart degenerates. Nothing beats writing the narrative for the cosmic radio and thriving off of the lust for life. Dreams, schemes and traveling the world. It’s Rock N’ Roll for the dreamers soul. Every note feels like a sanctified connection echoing into the chambers of heartache and infinite love.  Music is my language and with this tool, I hope to heal and translate the traumas of our lives.
-Abby Jeanne

Milwaukee wailer Abby Jeanne has a robust, jazzy voice that rivals the greats—Ella, Amy, even Janis. Her music plays like a talent reel, shuffling through bluesy torch songs, moody trip-hop experiments, and unhinged rockers, the constant thread being Jeanne’s go-for-broke determination and her refusal to let the world wear her down. What an absolute thrill it is hearing a singer this powerful just cut loose, free of any genre restraints.”- Shepherd Express, best albums 2017

Local/Live: January 23 – Body Futures
Jan 23 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Milwaukee’s mathy power-pop katamari of hooks, riffs, effects, and harmonies return with a new collection of fuzzed-out indie-rock nuggets, Maybe It’s Just the Weather!

Bassist Michael Wojtasiak and drummer DJ Hostettler set the foundation with bouncy, driving, and occasionally unconventional rhythms, while guitarist Christopher Maury teams with keyboardist/electric autoharp strummer Dixie Jacobs to layer a hyperactive wall of sound, made all the catchier by sour-patch-sweet vocal melodies more often than not led by Dixie’s powerful voice and assisted by shouting rejoinders from DJ and Michael.

Maybe It’s Just the Weather is a melancholy but joyous take on life in 2018: lots of stuff sucks but making music with your friends sure is rad, and for now, it’ll keep us going.

Local/Live: February 6th – Xposed 4Heads @ Club Garibaldi’s
Feb 6 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

WMSE’s Local/Live once again returns to Club Garibaldi’s for another awesome Local/Live segment that you can join!

On Tuesday, February 6th, we welcome the zany and crazy-talented Xposed 4Heads for a live show and interview on-site and over the airwaves.

In 2012, Xposed 4Heads had the opportunity to “regroup” for the “Lest We Forget” festival and has been going strong ever since. X4 has had numerous acclaimed releases in the synth pop art rock genre. Guest artists have included No Wave legend James Chance, Tuxedomoon co-founder Blaine Reininger, Grammy winner Frank London from the Klezmatics and Deborah Evan from The Flying Lizards (among others).

2017’s ‘Urgency Squad’ stayed on WMSE’s Top Ten play list for 6 months. Xposed 4Heads are a party band that puts on a high energy, witty show that is compared to a mash-up between Devo and the B52’s which features the Star Girls, two aliens that have come for peace and dancing.

You can join WMSE and the Xposed 4Heads at Club Garibaldi’s as we team up for this live radio show. If you can’t make it, listen live over the airwaves (or in the WMSE archives).

As always, WMSE Music Director Erin Wolf and co-host Cal Roach will lead the Rhythm Chicken through questions in between the live performance with the help of our audience (audience participation is encouraged!).

Doors are at 5:30pm and the segment starts at 6pm and runs until 7pm. Club Garibaldi’s is located at 2501 S. Superior Street in Bay View.

This is a 21+ event which is FREE and open to the public.

Again, if you can’t join us for the live segment and show at Club Garibaldi’s, please tune in, per usual, to 91.7 FM (or stream online at WMSE.org) at the 6 o’clock hour.
