Following in Monday tradition, we are offering our blog readers the chance to win tickets to these shows, so read on to find out how to start your week off right!
Madison Week In Music + Ticket Giveaways (5.26-6.1): Karma To Burn & Year Long Disaster, Moonalice, and Kris Allen
“For Ween fans, Aaron Freeman aka Gene Ween, playing a tiny, acoustic concert is akin to Bruce Springsteen playing a secret bar show in Jersey.” --PopMatters.com
Well, there’s just one show this week, but it promises to pack enough fun into one evening to keep you satisfied for a long while. Gene Ween, of the beloved alterna-indie rock band Ween, will be performing solo at the High Noon Saloon this Thursday. As if that weren’t cool enough, Milwaukee’s accordion-slingin’ butt kickin’ Pezzettino will be kicking the evening off with her quirky, cute, and ferocious songs. Just try to get through the night without a smile plastered on your face. We dare ya.
Read on to get the scoop on the show, and find out how you could win tickets!

Madison Week In Music + Ticket Giveaways (1.27-2.2): Hacienda, Say Hey For Haiti Benefit, A.A. Bondy, and Zion I
This week, we’re excited to welcome a number of fantastic artists back to Madison. Hacienda, A.A. Bondy, and Zion I have all played here in the fairly recent past, and will be returning to the delight of many local music lovers.
In addition to these shows, we are also proud to present an event later this week to benefit the victims of the Haiti disaster. Say Hey For Haiti is a 6 hour fundraising concert event that will be held at the High Noon Saloon (and simulcast on WORT 89.9 FM) this Saturday, featuring performances by Mash’ Allah Reggae, Roots Collective, and many more. All contributions–large or small–will make a difference. 100% of the money raised will go to Partners In Health. We sincerely hope you’ll consider making a much-needed donation to this cause.
