Twin Cities garage surf rockers Howler stop in Milwaukee on their way to meet up with Kaiser Chiefs on the West Coast.

In 2011, NME named them the year's third-best new band, creating significant buzz for their full-length debut 'America Give Up,' which was released to critical acclaim from respected critics like Pitchfork, A.V.

WC TANK Record Release, w/ WebsterX, Riley Lake, Airo Kwil, and Nicholas J

21+

$8

Milwaukee rapper WC Tank returns with 'Almost Forever' on August 30th.

An EP, it's also much more than that, as the visual genius - whose directorial credits include videos for Serengeti and Hellfyre Club - has included various elements in this release to stimulate all of the senses. In his own words, Tank says, "Almost Forever' is about existing. It will be the first release on milo's Clearinghouse dubbed "the penobscot expedition" and contains a cd of the ep + remixes and a dvd with Bread Mothers' visual score of the album, all sandwiched inside of a zine of poems and illustrations."

Tank is joined by other local staples: rappers WebsterX, Airo Kwil, and Nicholas J, as well as master of beats Riley Lake,

HERMAN ASTRO ALBUM RELEASE with BRYAN CHERRY, DJ TARIK MOODY

21+
Ha_small

$8 (includes album download card)

Soul rockers Herman Astro celebrate the release of their new album, 'Mean Gene.'

Herman Astro is a Milwaukee-based band whose current lineup was solidified in 2009. Stepbrothers Zachary Pluer (vocals/acoustic guitar) and Cody Calderon (drums), joined childhood friends Eric LeMieux (electric guitar) and Adam Dosemagen (bass), in what proved to be a powerful assemblage of their diverse musical backgrounds. Characterized by locked in drums and bass (funk, jazz and latin influences), gritty and riffy guitar hooks, and buttery, deeply soulful vocals, Herman Astro has created a sound with rich dynamics and intensely emotive qualities.

The quartet's following is vast and live résumé impressive, having played shows with giant acts like Alabama Shakes, Blues Traveler, and Fitz and the Tantrums. 'Mean Gene' is their third release and is the fullest album yet including horns and keyboards. Admission includes a download card of the album.

Fellow MKE soul rockers Bryan Cherry and Radio Milwaukee DJ extraordinaire Tarik Moody will get the party started. Check out the links below for more info on each of the three acts.

SOLE & DJ PAIN 1 w/ Yo DOT, The Calamity Janes FSB

Sole_dj_pain_1_small

$8 BUY TIX

Sole. founder of Anticon Records, and DJ Pain 1, Wisconsin's own producer who broke out with a beat on Young Jeezy's song, "Don't Do It," hit the stage together on September 10th,

Tickets available now!

'Death Drive' is a collision of two very distinct worlds; the scorched earth of indie rap legend, Sole, and the concrete jungles of certified platinum producer, DJ Pain1. 'Death Drive' combines modern pop/rap aesthetics with the political edge reminiscent of hip-hop classics such as “Fear Of A Black Planet". Sole & DJ Pain1 utilize the golden era hip-hop approach of a rapper and DJ without employing gimmicks or rap cliches typical with more formulaic two-turntables-and-a-mic unions. Cross-pollination between mainstream music and the underground has been happening for years, but anything that bubbles up is always devoid of substance. Death Drive is a political rap album executed in a way that eschews the rapper persona of martyr/prophet and speaks from the riot line. In a period of human history where critical music is absent from the airwaves, this is true resistance music.

Sole: In 1998 he founded Anticon Records, the first collectively owned indie Hip-Hop label in the United States. Since then, Sole has played over a thousand shows throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, the Middle East and Japan. In 2009, Sole pulled his masters from anticon and has re-invented himself as a new kind of artist, business, and political entity. His music has been recently featured in major media outlets such as Rolling Stone, 2DopeBoyz, Pitchfork, MTV, Impose, Huffington Post, Spin, Alarm Press, All Hip-hop, Alternet and many more. Sole has released ten full length studio albums and over a dozen mixtapes. In 2009, together with award winning visual artist, Ravi Zupa, he published The Pyre, an illustrated epic poem exploring empire, radical philosophy, anti-capitalism, and collapse. Throughout his career sole has been known as one to push the limits in terms of genre and content and is widely heralded as a pioneer of avant garde & experimental rap music. In 2013, Sole launched "The Solecast", a podcast featuring long form interviews with academics, artists and activists. Sole’s activism reaches beyond the studio and stage into his everyday life where he is deeply involved material and logistical support to many projects that engage directly in the class struggle.

“Sole is an Indie hip hop legend.” - The Huffington Post
"Sole is a true revolutionary." - Pitchfork
"Cult indie-rap icon" - Spin
“Sole is controversial and experimental...the Crass of the hip-hop world” - Diffuser.fm

DJ Pain 1: Known for his 2008 break-out beat on "Don't Do It" for Young Jeezy's platinum-selling album "The Recession", producer DJ Pain 1 stays busy. He tours as a DJ, produces full albums, as well as creating original and free content for the producer community - this Hip-Hop musician takes no breaks. Pain 1 spent the late 90's cultivating his hip-hop sensibilities through graffiti, DJing and beatmaking. He juggled a youth service/teaching career with creating music, often times marrying the two worlds-- he co-founded the first hip-hop performing arts program to be hosted in an institute of higher education in his city. Once Pain 1 decided to focus on his production career, his resume quickly grew to include both legendary hip-hop acts (Public Enemy, Kool G Rap, MC Lyte) as well as contemporary hit-makers (Juicy J, 2 Chainz, 50 Cent). He has also garnered attention for his multiple Youtube video series on both production technique and music business know-how.

-"[T]he next truth in sonic production." - Chuck D of Public Enemy
-"DJ Pain 1 has done a lot for Madison’s hip-hop rep and a lot for others period, either as a beatsmith for Young Jeezy and Kool G Rap or as an educator working in the community." - The AV Club
-"DJ Pain 1 provides the cure for the common beat." - 77Square Magazine
