Way back in September, we announced the lineup for Blackbird’s “From The Stage To The Booth” DJ series, which finds a different musical act taking over the Bay View bar’s turntables from 10 until close every Friday through the end of the year. To this point, bands like Static Eyes, Drugs Dragons, Heavy Hand, Space Raft, and Gallery Night have played some records. Rx Drugs, Whips, and Piles will take their turns, too, and along the way, the series will break format a bit to let little old Milwaukee Record provide an entirely local soundtrack.
On Friday, December 4, Milwaukee Record co-founders/editors Tyler Maas and Matt Wild will take turns playing some of their favorite Milwaukee music as part of what’s being billed as a “Local Spin.” Beyond hearing regional classics, obscurities, and getting a preview of some records that may wind up on our Best Albums of 2015 list, the DJ duo will also have hourly raffles for free local releases, Blackbird gift certificates, and Milwaukee Record t-shirts (which will also be on sale).
Come down and hear a night full of great local music, enjoy some of the bar’s 85-plus Wisconsin beers, and win some prizes. You’re officially invited (if you’re 21 or older). We hope to see you there.
