Occasionally, we decide to bring ye olde On The Record to the public by booking variety shows at bars or other performance venues. We strive to offer something for all tastes, with a blend of music, comedy, and general interest guests. On Thursday, November 9, we convened at Mojo Dojo (inside Urban Harvest Brewing Company) to talk to husband and wife synth-pop duo Golden Coins about their ongoing attempt to adopt a child, Liz Smith and Kari Houghtaling about their two-woman Home Alone remake, and Milwaukee writer Caleb Westphal about all things fish fry. Golden Coins performed a few songs, and we surprised Milwaukee Record Director of Advertising Josh Hoppert with some questions about being the former largest baby in Waukesha County. Fun!

A huge thanks to all the incredibly helpful folks at Mojo Dojo and Urban Harvest for making this happen. This episode is brought to you by Surly Brewing, a Minnesota-based brewery that just released its seasonal double IPA, Abrasive Ale. Music comes courtesy of Golden Coins, of course, and Joshua Jones. Subscribe to On The Record via iTunes or Stitcher (for free!).
