WMSE is excited to be back once again at Club Garibaldi for our monthly Local/Live segments! We’re ready for another great year of local music and on Tuesday, January 8th, we kick the year off with a bang and open the doors to welcome to the stage Milwaukee’s Trapper Schoepp, who has a brand new album to share.
Trapper Schoepp’s newest, ‘Primetime Illusion’ – produced by Pat Sansone (Wilco, Robyn Hitchcock) – will see its worldwide release on Xtra Mile Recordings on January 25th. This time around, it sees Schoepp reaching for his own place in the canon with a truly remarkable collection of character-driven songs and stories, a carefully etched series of sonic snapshots in which people we all know struggle to fulfill their own American dream. The album also features a co-write with Bob Dylan called, “On, Wisconsin.”
With its extraordinary melding of the personal and political, ‘Primetime Illusion’ firmly places Trapper Schoepp amongst the long American continuum of singing storytellers, a pedigree and place on the family tree that inspires and drives him each and every new day.
As always, WMSE Music Director Erin and co-host Cal will lead the our musical guests through questions in between the live performance with the help of our audience (and audience participation is encouraged!).
YOU can join WMSE and Trapper Schoepp for a sneak peek of ‘Primetime Illusion’ – doors are at 5:30pm and the segment starts at 6pm, running until 7pm. Club Garibaldi’s is located at 2501 S. Superior Street in Bay View.
If you can’t join us in-person, listen live over the airwaves (or in the WMSE archives) at the 6 o’clock hour.
This 21+ event is FREE and open to the public.
Local/Live on WMSE is sponsored by Club Garibaldi.
