Show Lineup

Large Print

(Milwaukee, WI)
Genre: Indie Rock

Large Print’s energetic, dynamic, and at times scrappy songwriting; along with production stylings inspired by groups such as Swirlies, Duster, and Sonic Youth give the group an ever changing sound made for active listening. Formed in early 2018, Large Print lives by the goal of continued collaboration, and hands-on production.

Large Print has been working tirelessly since 2019 to independently write, record, and share demo material. During 2020 they released a series of short songs and videos every week of the year via Instagram. The upcoming tape release of their double EP “In the Clouds” and “In the Dark” represents the culmination of that work with fully fleshed out versions of songs along with previously unreleased material.

Social Caterpillar

(Milwaukee)
Genre: Punk

Self-described as a psychedelic chamber ensemble for the disobedient and melancholic youth, Milwaukee’s SOCIAL CATERPILLAR—a four-piece collective composed of vocalist and guitarist Kyle Smith, bassist Eli Smith, violinist and guitarist Eric Ash, and drummer Whisper Crystal—have been playing and recording a unique style of music that defies simple categorization together since 2016.  The band, which which features current and former members of Midwest DIY staples like Cairns, Swells, Gauss, Scowler, and Alta, have sought to traverse diverse sonic territories accented with an expansive instrumentation and a punk ethos that gives SOCIAL CATERPILLAR their inimitable sound.  Deeply personal lyrics with an ethic towards protest layered over acoustic and distorted guitars and a pounding rhythm section mixed with sprawling string and horn arrangements, SOCIAL CATERPILLAR embodies a method of experimentation that creates uniquely unparalleled and haunting soundscapes for their listeners.   

SOCIAL CATERPILLAR’S newest full length, When You Woke Up To Dances of Light, sees the band again returning to Electrical Audio in order to create a record that at once continues the foundations laid on their debut LP while traversing new and expansive sonic territories that transgress the boundaries of their previous work without abandoning the core of their sound and approach to music.  With When You Woke Up To Dances of Light, SOCIAL CATERPILLAR find their place in an enigmatic intersection of a variety of styles wherein the creative aesthetic the band has cultivated skillfully navigates a distinct blend of poetic lyricism and complex arrangements accented with violin and horn sections in such a way that is uniquely their own.  Calm and carefully composed at times while chaotic and distorted with ambient and experimental elements at others, with their newest effort SOCIAL CATERPILLAR showcase their ability to continuously evolve into new territories and the results are as beautiful as they are hauntingly rememberable.

Delicious Monsters

(Milwaukee)
Genre: Garage Rock

Delicious Monsters is the freshly christened band in town drawing energy from punk and dosed with the musicality of New Wave. DeMo is a straight shot of energy for fans of The B52’s mixed with a wiry interjection of art punk. Featuring members of Fuck of Seagulls, Uh-Oh, YKK, Resurrectionists, Peroxide, and Gorilla Knifefight, this is a band that has tried and true musicians ready to make you bounce around with no questions asked. If abstract stories and equality of people strike a chord with you, then you will be additionally enthralled.
