Our good friends at Jonk Music have announced details about the second incarnation of their Solskinn Music Festival coming up this August, featuring some of our favorite local artists.   Read all about it below, and pick up your tickets here.

Wisconsin summers are unique. Heat we can actually appreciate, looser schedules, and really cold beer. Add incredible live music in a barn and there’s no better place on earth. Your trusted source for local and national music coverage, Jonk Music is excited to announce that it will be bringing all these things together on Saturday, August 16, 2014 for the second annual Solskinn Music Festival.

Solskinn began last year as a part of Make Music Madison and is proud to establish a tradition of showing off talented local artists. The event will take place this year at storied and heavily loved The Shitty Barn in Spring Green, Wis., just a short drive from Madison. A variety of exceptional local and regional groups will join us this year, including Boom Forest (solo), Building on BuildingsFargoGGOOLLDDLittle LegendJeremiah Nelson, andOld Earth. They will combine for a day soundtracked by the highest quality folk, experimental rock, indie pop, and everything in between.

Summer nights were meant for picnicking with friends, and this need be no different. Grills will be available for free use outside the barn, guests are encouraged to bring picnic blankets and chairs, and Spring Green’s fine Furthermore Beer will be sold. So grab some friends and some fee-free tickets; it’s time to get shitty.

On An On’s Nate Eiesland Sounds Off With Jonk Music (In Madison TONIGHT!)

On An On

 

One of our favorite new(er) indie bands on the scene is On An On, whose dream pop sounds are anything but snooze-worthy.  Their debut album, Give In, has been described as “intriguing, ethereal swatches of sounds, mixing retro-sounding harmonies, shimmering synth, and buzzy guitar,” as well as a “haunting yet beautifully bare album…a textural journey over new terrain.”

If you’re not yet sold, take a listen to the whole glorious kit-n-caboodle here, and read a fun, quick Q & A with frontman Nate Eiesland courtesy of Jonk Music here.

The band will be in Madison for a show at the RSR Bar tonight (Thursday, April 25).  Tickets are still available here and at the door.  Don’t miss it!
