12th Annual Burnhearts/Pabst Street Party @ Burnhearts
Jun 29 @ 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Via Milwaukee Record :
Since opening in 2007, Burnhearts has slowly-but-steadily transformed into one of Milwaukee’s premier beer bars. Along the way, the Bay View lounge’s owners have shown customers they like to party. Beyond Mitten Fest (which has pretty much garnered local holiday status by this point) and Punk House Keggers, Burnhearts also partners with Pabst Blue Ribbon every summer for a day-long block party on a parcel of concrete outside the bar’s digs at the corner of Potter and Logan avenues.

The fun and fancy-free celebration of music, food, crafts, and a beloved cheap beer locals have come to know as “Burnhearts/Pabst Street Party” will celebrate its 12th anniversary this summer. On Saturday, June 29, the party will rage on with an eclectic mix of six local acts. Milwaukee Record—an official media sponsor of the event—is proud to announce the lineup for the 12th annual Burnhearts/Pabst Street Party, taking place outside the bar from noon to 8 p.m. Here’s who will play (listed headliner to opener).

Immortal Girlfriend
Shle Berry
Fuzzysurf
L’Resorts
Marielle Allschwang & The Visitations
SistaStrings

The Bay View block party will also include introductions from WMSE and between-set DJing by Why B. There will be food from a variety of local vendors available on-site as well. As always, Cortney Heimerl has curated a group of Milwaukee makers to sell crafts. Beyond the full bar selection Burnhearts will offer patrons inside, attendees can purchase Korbel Brandy Slush and, of course, Pabst Blue Ribbon outside. It’s going to be awesome. We’ll see you there, Milwaukee!

Jul 9 @ 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm

From early days growing up in the southeast Los Angeles suburb of Downey, California under the tutelage of T-Bone Walker and Big Joe Turner to their emergence as central figures in the eclectic LA punk/rock scene of the early ’80s to their current status as internationally-renowned influences in their own right, the Blasters have spent their lives exploring and expressing the deep and diverse musical legacy that is best described by the title of their first album: American Music.
