Liz Phair + Speedy Ortiz @ Turner Hall Ballroom | Milwaukee | Wisconsin | United States

Liz Phair rules. Liz Phair’s debut album, Exile In Guyville (which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year), rules. Liz Phair’s pre-Guyville Girly-Sound tapes rule. The rest of Liz Phair’s career ranges from “yep, still rules” (Whip-Smart) to “huh” (2003’s Liz Phair). But whatever. Liz Phair rules. And now, hot on the heels of the recent release of Girly-Sound To Guyville: The 25th Anniversary Box Set, Liz Phair is coming to Milwaukee (for the first time in seven years, if memory serves).

Beet Street Harvest Festival @ Cactus Club

Beet Street Harvest Festival @ Cactus Club | Milwaukee | Wisconsin | United States

The city will officially be festing into fall with Beet Street Harvest Festival. Rain put a damper on last year’s festivities, but Goodkind, Palomino, and Cactus Club thankfully decided to press on for a third installment.

Join the trio of Bay View businesses on Saturday, October 13 for a day of food, drinks, live music, baking competitions, an urban pumpkin patch, and festival fun for all ages. A chunk of Wentworth Avenue between Goodkind and Cactus Club will be blocked off for the occasion. In addition to the music outside, Cactus Club will offer local and nationally-noted talent all afternoon long, followed by a 21+ after party. Goodkind will be open for brunch. As always, Palomino will host the Great Midwestern Pie Championship.

The harvest festival will also have a beneficial and community-focused angle, as groups like Sixteenth Street Community Health Clinic, LSS Refugee Resettlement, Girls Rock Camp and The New State will be on hand to inform and engage visitors with a variety of activities. Local restaurants and farmers will sell food and produce. Great Lakes Distillery cocktails, cider, Red Bull bombs, and a variety of Pabst Milwaukee Brewery beers (yes, including PBR) will be available.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a block party without tons of music. This year’s list of performers is the most eclectic lineup yet. Afrofuturistic indie duo OSHUN will headline the outdoor stage. Inside, Cactus Club will feature the likes of Oozing Wound, Zed Kenzo, Slow Walker, Dog In Ecstasy, and more over the course of the day. Here’s the full lineup.

Milwaukee Record Halftime Show with Shoot Down The Moon @ Cactus Club
Oct 15 @ 7:15 pm

Following an especially long offseason, we’re proud to announce the Milwaukee Record Halftime Show concert series is coming back bigger, stronger, and in the best shape of its life for another season at Cactus Club.

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.

Milwaukee Record presents ‘Dead Alive’ @ Avalon Theater
Oct 17 @ 7:00 pm
Milwaukee Record presents 'Dead Alive' @ Avalon Theater | Milwaukee | Wisconsin | United States

Do you like movies with goofy, over-the-top gore? Do you like movies with lots of goofy, over-the-top gore? Do you like movies with tons of goofy, over-the-top gore? Then you’re in luck, because on Wednesday, October 17, at Avalon Theater, we’re screening Peter Jackson’s 1992 comedy horror classic Dead Alive (a.k.a. Braindead). Tickets to the 7 p.m. show are $5. Kick ass for the Lord and buy yours here.

Roughly a decade before Jackson would helm the landmark Lord Of The Rings trilogy, the New Zealand filmmaker was gleefully shocking audiences with his tale of star-crossed lovers, rabid rat-monkeys, unquenchable zombies, some series mother-son issues, ass-kicking priests (“Stand back boy! This calls for divine intervention!”), and enough practical gore effects to make the Evil Dead movies look like a season of The Golden Girls. Similar to the Evil Dead franchise, Dead Alive has its tongue firmly in cheek; scenes of our hero Lionel wrestling with his mother’s zombified corpse, beating up a zombified baby, and mowing down dozens of zombies with a literal lawn mower are so outrageous that it’s impossible not to scream and laugh. Jackson is having a ton of fun here, and watching him cheerily throw all sense of good taste out the window (and then inject it with poison in hopes of killing it but oh god it’s only made it stronger!) is equally fun.

Again, get your tickets here. Our friends at Lakefront Brewery will have their coffee-flavored Fuel Cafe stout on tap for the occasion (“Rich and creamy, just the way I like it!”), and since the screening is close to Halloween, dressing up might be fun, too. See you at the party!

Buffalo Gospel @ Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts
Oct 19 @ 8:00 pm
Buffalo Gospel @ Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts | Brookfield | Wisconsin | United States

A lot has changed since the last time Buffalo Gospel put out an album. Since the bluegrass-tinged country outfit released We Can Be Horses in 2013, bandleader Ryan Necci has witnessed a complete overhaul in the project’s lineup, he’s significantly adjusted his songwriting approach, and he lost one of his oldest and dearest friends to brain cancer. Those noticeable changes are all evident in On The First Bell, an unshakable menagerie of heartfelt numbers in which Necci and his new cast of collaborators skillfully shift from mournful to hopeful and trade sadness for resolve over the span of 10 flawless songs.

Though Bell‘s overriding themes carry more weight than Horses, Necci’s arrangements are much more efficient and direct. No song cracks the five-minute mark, yet “High Time To Hang Fire,” the deceptively sad “Lonestar,” and the unflinchingly tragic “Homeless” manage to pack loads of emotion into tight, artfully constructed packages. Along the way, the band manages a fun, radio-ready single in “18-Wheeler” (the video for which features Ted Perry). That exception aside, Buffalo Gospel’s latest takes time and tragedy and transforms it into an effort that shines, despite being shrouded in darkness and loss.

Abby Jeanne’s Cosmic Weekend (Night 1) with Bully, The Shivas, and more @ The Cooperage
Oct 20 @ 6:00 pm

Back in August, we debuted a new song by the incomparable Abby Jeanne and announced the hardworking talent’s intentions to host a “Cosmic Weekend” at The Cooperage in October. Part of the lineup for the two-night, two-show extravaganza was announced at that time, with a few surprises promised.

Today, those unknown acts were revealed and, oh boy, it’s going to be great. The Saturday, October 20 show will be headlined by Bully, with support from The Shivas, Lucille Furs, and more. The following day, Abby will be joined by Lydia Lunch, Fiona Silver, and an outstanding cast of local support. Adding to the 12 projects playing, Abby Jeanne’s Cosmic Weekend will also include art installations, a marketplace, and an art gallery.

Advance tickets are on sale now. Single day tickets are $20. Weekend passes are $35. Check out the full lineup below.

Direct Hit! + The Copyrights, and Telethon @ The Back Room @ Colectivo
Oct 20 @ 7:30 pm
Direct Hit! + The Copyrights, and Telethon @ The Back Room @ Colectivo | Milwaukee | Wisconsin | United States

Since putting out its outstanding Wasted Mind on Fat Wreck Chords in the summer of 2016, Direct Hit! hasn’t only toured relentlessly, but they’ve also found time to write, record, and release a bunch of new music. Last year alone found the band putting out a Record Store Day seven-inch in association with WMSE in April and re-issued 2011’s great Domesplitter on Fat Wreck that same month. As if that wasn’t enough 2017 output, Direct Hit! also contributed six new songs to Human Movement, a 12-song split with PEARS. Oh, and singer-guitarist Nick Woods is also part of an ownership group that bought the former Metal Grill in Cudahy, with plans to re-open the space as an arcade and all-ages venue before year’s end.

Surely, the band is going to take a much needed break now, right? Wrong. Also before the end of 2018, Direct Hit! will release yet another full-length on Fat Wreck Chords. As we wait for that album and enjoy some new singles, Direct Hit! will treat locals to an all-too-rare Milwaukee show. Veteran Illinois-based pop-punkers The Copyrights and local favorites Telethon help make this one a must-see.

Stand Up Science with Shane Mauss @ The Underground Collaborative
Oct 21 @ 7:30 pm
Stand Up Science with Shane Mauss @ The Underground Collaborative | Milwaukee | Wisconsin | United States

Western Wisconsin native Shane Mauss grew up near La Crosse, but actually got his stand-up start in Boston before winding up in Los Angeles and bringing his act to comedy clubs throughout the country. When he wasn’t performing hundreds of show a year, Mauss released a Comedy Central Presents special and two albums, performed on Conan (five times!), and found his material evolving considerably. The comedian will return to his home state with some heady new material in the form of his “Stand Up Science” set. Before this month’s show at The UC, you can learn more about his background, his growth, and his life of a road comic by listening to Mauss’ episode of our On The Record podcast.

Doomsday @ Fuel Cafe 5th Street | Milwaukee | Wisconsin | United States

On Saturday, October 27, Fuel Cafe and Lakefront Brewery will celebrate 20 years of collaboration by partnering once more on a block party and a limited-release variant of the iconic Fuel Cafe stout. From noon to 6 p.m., a festival called Doomsday will bring food, band, vendors, and a “post-apocalyptic, chaotic Halloween party” to a portion of 5th Street outside the new Fuel location. A brutal batch of bands—including Northless, Moon Curse, Cashfire Sunset, Tan, and more TBA—will provide the afternoon’s soundtrack.

If the ability to enjoy one last festival well into autumn isn’t enough for you, perhaps the opportunity to try the ultra-rare Doomsday beer will bring you out. The bourbon barrel-aged Fuel Cafe Imperial Stout clocks in at a sturdy 11.5 percent ABV, and will ONLY be available at this event. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. Lakefront will also have other limited drafts and firkins available.

Milwaukee Record presents ‘Idiocracy’ @ Avalon Theater
Nov 6 @ 7:00 pm
Milwaukee Record presents 'Idiocracy' @ Avalon Theater | Milwaukee | Wisconsin | United States

Could you ever envision a time in which an unqualified, temperamental President and his inept cabinet “lead” an advertising-laden nation, whose listless populace derives entertainment from watching people injure each other on television? Mike Judge certainly could, as evidenced in his 2006 cult comedy hit, Idiocracy. In the years since the film’s release, Idocracy went from being the writer and director’s exaggerated satirical view of what society might be like 500 years in the future to a hauntingly accurate portrayal of what life is like today. Sometimes the similarities between Idiocracy and reality are so close that you have to laugh, which is exactly what we’ll do when we screen the film on Election Night.

Join us at Avalon Theater on Tuesday, November 6 for an extra special Election Night screening of the underappreciated comedy-turned-documentary. The Judge-directed feature stars Luke Wilson as an “average American,” who wakes up in the year 2,505 as a result of a military experiment mishap. As he navigates his way through the dumb new world, he encounters a zany cast of characters and soon realizes he’s now the smartest man in the world. The film also features Maya Rudolph, Dax Shepard, Justin Long, Stephen Root, and an unforgettable performance by Terry Crews.

Tickets to the 7 p.m. screening cost $5. There’s also a $10 “Thirst Mutilator” package that includes a movie ticket, a Milwaukee Record flag sticker, and a pint of a limited “Brawndo” beer variant that Lakefront Brewery will make for the occasion. It’s got what plants crave! Whether you’re celebrating your preferred candidate’s victory or mourning society’s continued descent, you won’t want to miss this Election Night screening. And besides, you can always record Ow My Balls! to watch later.
