Memorial Day is a time to pause, give thanks to all those who have served our country, and cook out or something. It’s also a time to celebrate the unofficial beginning of summer. Summer! Is there anything better than summer in Milwaukee? A big honking list of Milwaukee summer festivals says “NO.”

Anyway, like most of you, we’re taking it easy today. But that doesn’t mean we’re leaving you high and dry. Below you’ll find a 29-track playlist of some of our favorite Milwaukee songs of 2019 (the ones on Soundcloud, anyway), perfect for scoring you beginning-of-summer/Memorial Day festivities.
