If you’re looking to enjoy the best and brightest in live Milwaukee music but can’t swing the late hours, 88Nine Radio Milwaukee‘s 414 Music Live is for you. The Thursday afternoon series has featured everyone from Field Report and Milo to Sista Strings and Whips. Artists take to the station’s cozy stage and put on a live performance, and the public is welcome to check it all out for free. Not a bad way to end your workday.
Recently, Lex Allen and New Age Narcissism dropped by 88Nine for a 414 Music Live session, and another great local institution, Cream City Soundcheck, was there to film it. The UW-Milwaukee student video group caught Allen and company performing his inescapable single “Cream And Sugar,” as well as the funky, fleet, and funny “This Is Our Year.” Head over to 88Nine to see the first video; press play below to watch the second. (Oh, and see Allen and many more at tonight’s Milwaukee Day show at Turner Hall. 5:30 p.m. start time!)
