With the fourth of July quickly approaching and the temperature rising, summer has officially hit its stride in Madison. Be sure to get out there and enjoy it while it lasts, because in true Midwestern fashion, the fall isn’t too far away, complete with more concert announcements happening every week!
On Thursday, October 9, British rockers The Kooks roll into the Barrymore Theatre, as part of a North American tour in support of their April release, Konk, which debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart. The band recently grabbed some headlines for salacious comments made about the VIP section at the Isle of Wright Festival, in addition to Luke Pritchard’s name-dropping Carmen Electra as a boink interest.
Australian guitarist Xavier Rudd, recently voted the sexiest male vegetarian down under in a PETA poll, will find himself right at home here in Madison on Tuesday, September 23, for a show at the Majestic Theatre. Come and see the show to evaluate the tofu junkie’s sexy factor for yourselves — tickets go on sale July 11 at the Majestic Theatre, Context and a number of other downtown locations.
