What Made Milwaukee Famous is performing at Neurolux on Feb. 19 as part of Radio Boise Tuesdays and we have tickets for sale at the store! RSVP HERE.
It’s also Presidents Day, and given that it’s a holiday The Record Exchange is offering customers 20% off storewide* all day long! The coffee/gift shop opens at 7:30 a.m., then the record store side opens at 9 a.m. (closing at 9 p.m. in our usual fashion). (*Excludes sale and clearance items.)
The RX is holding a Treefort Music Fest Flash Sale during the in-store. From 6 to 9 p.m. Monday, we’re selling 4-day Treefort passes for only $99 — that’s $10 cheaper than you can get them anywhere else! At $99 with 250 bands on the bill, that amounts to 40 cents a band.
ABOUT WHAT MADE MILWAUKEE FAMOUS
What Made Milwaukee Famous has been a stalwart of the Austin music scene since their inception in 2003. The three original members, Michael Kingcaid (vocals, guitar, keyboards), John Farmer (bass), and Jason Davis (guitars, vocals), each bring a diverse range of influences to the table, allowing them to seamlessly shift between genres at the drop of a hat.
With the release of their first two records, Trying to Never Catch Up and What Doesn’t Kill Us on Seattle’s Barsuk imprint, the band was touted for their abilities to channel strong musicianship and diverse song-writing into instantly, addictive hooks. Nearly five years later comes their third album You Can’t Fall Off the Floor, which was self-released in January.
Their “elegant pop” (Billboard) has landed them on the bill at a number of the mammoth festivals including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Sasquatch, SXSW and Lollapalooza, highlighted by a taping on PBS’s prestigious Austin City Limits with Franz Ferdinand. They have also shared the stage with the likes of Arcade Fire, The Black Keys, The National, Snow Patrol, The Walkmen, TV on the Radio, and the Pretenders to name a few; a testament to their musical diversity and mutual respect with other artists in the industry.
