Over the next few days, Madison will open its arms to Natalia Zuckerman, Gold Motel & Family of the Year, The Knitters, Clem Snide, Devin The Dude, and Mastodon. If you’re looking to take a short road trip (or suggest a great show to your Milwaukee buddies), check out the details on the Hurricane Bells show below. They’ll be playing at The Cactus Club next weekend, and trust us–they’ll be well worth the trek.
OK, you guys know the drill by now. Read on for info on all of this week’s upcoming shows and enter to win a free pair of tickets. Just remember, we need your contest entries posted by Tuesday, May 11th to be considered!
