This Week’s Nightlife and Giveaways: Giving Thanks For Great Music In Madison

We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  The sentiment is felt year-round, but since the recent holiday has us thinking about it on a deeper level, please allow us to extend thanks to our awesome blog readers and Madison concert-goers, without whom the Madison music scene would hardly be as vibrant as it is!  You guys rock, and we look forward to sharing exciting performances from a diverse crew of talented artists for many years to come.  Speaking of exciting performances, we’ve got three (very different) shows coming up this week that you could win tickets to!  Melt-Banana‘s experimental punk, CunninLynguists‘ hip hop and Colbie Caillat‘s laid-back acoustic pop sounds will all grace our city this week.  Read on to find out how you could attend their shows on us!

High Noon Saloon $13 adv $15dos – 18+

Live Music Photo Tuesdays – Mr. Lif, Grieves and more…

Mr. Lif brought his political and socially conscious hip hop act to the High Noon Saloon last week and put on a brilliant show. He was casually hanging out at the merchandise table  and mingling with the crowd before hand, and then flipped the switch as soon as he hit stage…delivering his rhymes with intensity and passion. The evening’s other performers included Rob DZ and DJ Skooly, DJ Statik, Willie Evans JR., Metro, Budo and Grieves. It was a prodigious lineup and the crowd really got into the show. Nearly everyone on the dance floor was moving to the beats, singing along and generally working up a good sweat.

Hope you enjoy the photos…
