It’s been two months since we announced the lineup of Milwaukee Record‘s second annual Local Coverage benefit. It’s been almost as long since we told you tickets were officially on sale. The radio silence on our end since then was a mixture of 1. Not wanting to bother you with details of a show that was so, so far from happening and 2. Frankly, there not being many new things to say about the event. Well, today puts us just ONE MONTH away from Local Coverage.
On Friday, January 15, a varied and wonderful mix of 10 Milwaukee bands and rappers will take the stage at Turner Hall Ballroom to play 15-minute sets of music from another area act, which they drafted back in October. Since then, we’ve heard snippets of song adaptations and learned some of the exciting directions bands plan to take their assigned band’s material and, oh man, this show is going to be good! Here’s the lineup again for those who need a refresher of how the show will shake down.
Decibully (playing Soul Low)
GGOOLLD (playing Maritime)

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, Ale Asylum, Casio Interstate Music, Classic Slice, Mystery Room Mastering, Vanguard, and a few more sponsors we’re finalizing at the moment, we’ll be raising more money for our beneficiary organizations—Girls Rock Milwaukee and Guest House Of Milwaukee—with between-band raffles for awesome (and valuable!) prizes. Obviously, this won’t be the last you’ll hear about Local Coverage from us, but do us and the two deserving Milwaukee charities (who will get 100 percent of the profits from this event) a solid and mark this once in a lifetime show down on your calendar now.
