Superchunk Closes FRZN Fest TONIGHT!


OK Madison, let’s close out FRZN Fest in a big way.   Tonight is the final night of a very memorable run of performances including sets by Caroline Smith, Lizzo, San Fermin, Milagres, Communist Daughter, Fire Retarded, and Diarrhea Planet.   Bare Mutants and adored 90’s indie outfit Superchunk will wrap things up this evening and we want you there!  If you haven’t already picked up your tickets, grab them here.

To prove Superchunk sound just as fantastic now as they ever did, check out the band absolutely killing it with “Me, You, & Jackie Mittoo” at SPIN’s Year In Music event just a few short weeks ago.

Jonk Music Gives FRZN Fest Some Love



The first night of our third annual FRZN Fest at the High Noon Saloon was an absolute blast!  We’re looking forward to three more nights of performances by both old favorites and emerging stars alike, and so are the folks over at Jonk Music, who have been covering the fest with fantastic pieces on San Fermin, Lizzo (pictured), Diarrhea Planet, and Superchunk.

Head on over to our Music Calendar if you still need to pick up tickets for the remaining nights of FRZN Fest, or grab ’em at the door.  Can’t wait to see you there!

To get your eardrums seasoned for shows, take a listen to a selection of tunes by the artists in our lineup:

Now Streaming: Fire Retarded’s “Meat Stairs”

Fire Retarded

Our friends in Fire Retarded recently got some love from Impose who remarked that “Meat Stairs” (the first track from their upcoming Scroggz Manor album) “moves fast enough for you to lose track of your own heartbeat, and as the group pounds through a hypnotic refrain, a blistering solo is not far off, making the ultimate trio of heavy shit, sludgy shit, and take-no-prisoners vocal stylings move the track through to its crashing conclusion.”

Take a listen here, and catch the band live in Madison as part of our annual FRZN Fest on January 18.
