After three years of fun philanthropy, Milwaukee Record’s Local Coverage benefit will return to Turner Hall Ballroom in 2018. On Friday, January 19, an eclectic cast of nine local acts from all corners of the stylistic spectrum will each play 15-minute sets, covering material of artists they personally selected at Company Brewing on Monday. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see your favorite Milwaukee outfits as you’ve never seen them before.

From De La Buena adapting the music of Jaill, Lex Allen re-imagining the Irish punk stylings of Whiskey Of The Damned, Space Raft covering NO/NO shortly after having their material covered by Girls Rock alums Negative/Positive, Local Coverage is an incomparable event for a great cause. All proceeds will be donated to Milwaukee Women’s Center.
