If you’ve been back to the Mitchell Park Domes since the early COVID lockdowns, you know that they remain Milwaukee’s most idiosyncratic (and endangered) treasures. But one thing hasn’t returned to the Domes since COVID: live music. Happily, that’ll change on Thursday, September 29, when the Friends of the Domes host a “Rhythm & Brews” event featuring food, drinks, a light show, and music from Milwaukee’s own Trapper Schoepp.

“We are pleased to welcome the community to explore the beautiful Domes at night and enjoy some of the best music and beer that Milwaukee has to offer,” says Friends of the Domes Executive Director Christa Beall Diefenbach in a press release. “Rhythm & Brews will be a celebration of the many treasures Milwaukee has to offer.”

Schoepp will perform in the Show Dome, home to the summer floral show and a whole lotta faerie gardens. The 21+ event runs from 6-9 p.m., and will also give guests the chance to “enjoy the music of other Milwaukee-area musicians as they explore the Domes.”

Tickets are $30 ($25 for Friends of the Domes members), and include two drink tickets. Get them HERE. Proceeds will benefit Friends of the Domes.

Schoepp’s latest album, May Day, was released in 2021. It’s super good! Fingers crossed he goes off-script on the 29th and lights a piano on fire in the Domes’ koi pond.
