WMSE‘s local and live in-studio showcase, Local/Live, airs Tuesdays 6-7 p.m. You can find past episodes HERE. Beginning in 2023, we’re also collecting episodes on a handy Soundcloud playlist.

SID: Good evening everyone, and welcome to another edition of WMSE’s Local/Live, broadcast tonight from Anodyne on Bruce in Walker’s Point! Shout-out to our in-house audience! Give yourselves a hand!

MATT: When you think of great modern Milwaukee musical artists, who do you think of? You think of new groups like Violent Femmes, you think of the Steve Miller Band, you think of Liberace. I think of tonight’s guests. Now calling them new or modern, that may be up for debate, because it’s been a few years since we’ve heard from this band. But I love them, you’re going to love them too. I’m very, very excited for tonight’s guests, Piles!
