Milwaukee Record Halftime Show (vs. Washington) Ft. DEVILS TEETH

This time around, Miller High Life will sponsor our football-focused festivities, meaning fans can enjoy “The Champagne Of Beers” for $2.50 a bottle or $10 for a bucket of five beers all game long. Bloody Marys will also be on special for $6. There will be a rotating lineup of food trucks and complimentary snacks on hand (feel free to bring food to share). Need more? Well, there will also be bleacher seating and the opportunity to watch Aaron Rodgers play football on two televisions. Oh, and touchdown shots.

Most importantly, like last year, we’ve assembled a stacked roster of 16 projects to provide FREE (21+) halftime entertainment. Moreover, band members (or other hand-selected people) will serve as DJs before the game and during commercials. The series will kick off with a Sunday night performance by Bad Wig, and will continue on (at least) until the regular season finale by Knaaves. Along the way, a variety of acts—including Devils Teeth, Immortal Girlfriend, Population Control, Telethon, Whips, Amanda Huff, and a super secret December 16 band—will take the stage at Cactus Club.

Football is back and so is the Milwaukee Record Halftime Show! It’s going to be awesome. Here’s the full lineup (game times subject to change):

Devils Teeth

(Milwaukee, WI)

Devils Teeth came together as a lean but efficient three-piece in 2016, with Jon Hanusa on vocals and guitar, Eric Arsnow on vocals and bass, and Chuck Engel on drums. Dropping the apostrophe “just because”, the band quickly found themselves sharing the stage with notables like Dick Dale, The Blind Shake, Local H, The Toxenes and Left Lane Cruiser. After releasing some lo-fi rehearsal tracks, the band set to work on their debut in the summer of 2017 — aiming to be more than a traditional garage rock throwback. Channeling inspiration from Brucesploitation and Herschall Gordon Lewis films as well as surf and psychedelic sounds from decades past, the band holed up in Arsnow’s sweaty basement to self-produce the album. Months later, the band emerged with ten songs that blend the reverb-drenched energy of surf rock with the dissonance of post-punk and the theatrics of Spaghetti Western soundtracks.
