Our favorite Milwaukee maniac JUICEBOXXX is headlining this evening, bringing that noisyAMERICAN MUSICthat'll have the crowd creamin' their jeans. For those who haven't heard JUICEBOXX before, he's an artist who, since the age of 15, has been been barn burning all over the world with little regard for convention and a lot of guts and tension. He's known around these parts (and all parts) for bridging the gap between classic rock and classic rap, creating his own genre of fucking killer artistry. You are in for a treat with this one, folks.
VAIL is the ethereal art-pop/dance solo work of Emily Kempf, who's no stranger to our stage, as she's graced it more times than we can count with her rock-oriented groups DEHD, SUPERMAGICAL, and HEAVY DREAMS. As VAIL, she channels her «truest mother father self» through electronic rhythms, interchanging hushed and howling vocals, and swirling synthesizers. All of it is accompanied live by the artistic movements of @hashcloud & @_real_dom.
HOWARDIAN is a punk art rock group fronted by Ian Vanek (ex-Japanther) established in 1994. HOWARDIAN use analog drum machines, an array of synth melodies and family sized bass lines to cook an authentic soulful sound. Thoughtful lyrics are delivered in a unique manner while surfy drums pound under the warm wall of sound.
