Did you hear who’s coming to town this week?  Oh, it’s only THE QUEEN OF ROCK AND ROLL herself, Miss Wanda Jackson!  The world famous “Rockabilly Filly” was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame last year (what took so long!?), but her shows are anything but a nostalgia act.  You don’t want to miss this living legend shake her stuff and growl her way through an incredible night of music, so you better enter to win a pair of tickets below.

Other shows in the coming days include two Smoke Free Sounds Series dates—the first features Charlie Parr in Superior, followed by Monsters Of Mock in Green Bay—and Ozomatli at The Barrymore, right here in Madison.

Madison Week In Music + Ticket Giveaways (7.28-8.3): Greg Laswell & Cary Brothers, John Eddie, Lucero, Bill Maher, and The Portland Cello Project

Portland Cello Project

You may have noticed that we’ve been adding new shows left and right lately (see our Music Calendar for the latest).   We’re hard at work putting together a pleasantly busy fall schedule to entertain, educate, and delight your ears as summer fades away.  But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves!  There’s still plenty of hot lazy days ahead of us to fill with great tunes.

Take this week for example.  Maybe a little rock, a pinch of comedy, or even a sprinkle of classical performances can seduce your senses in the coming days as we welcome the likes of Greg Laswell & Cary Brothers, John Eddie, Lucero, Bill Maher, and The Portland Cello Project to Madison.  (We’re also looking forward to presenting a second John Eddie show in Milwaukee this week if you can’t make the Madison gig.)  Read on to get the show details and find out how to win tickets!

Artists You Should Know: Jonny Lang

Jonny Lang

Grammy-winning songwriter and guitar master Jonny Lang has lived and breathed the blues since he was a child.  He released his solo debut, Lie To Me, when he was only 15 years old, and has been a major player on the modern blues scene ever since.  Over the years he has even shared stages with artists like B.B. King, Jeff Beck, Aerosmith, and the Rolling Stones.

We’ve always been in awe of Jonny’s virtuosic approach to the guitar, and are anticipating a naturally stellar performance when he plays Madison on July 11th at the Capitol Theatre (tickets available here).  If you’re one of the few people out there who hasn’t heard of Jonny before, don’t worry—allow us to introduce him.  Read on to learn more about this talented artist and his upcoming Madison gig.

Madison Week In Music + Ticket Giveaways (6.30-7.06): Black Mountain and Wisconsin Is Better Smoke Free–A Celebration Featuring VO5 and Freedy Johnston

Black Mountain

Wisconsinites will be celebrating more than just Independence Day this week.  Beginning on Monday, July 5th, absolutely all Wisconsin bars and restaurants will be smoke-free.  This is a BIG deal, and we’re marking the occasion with a free celebration at The High Noon Saloon with performances from VO5 and Freedy Johnston.

We know next Monday can feel like a lifetime away, so if you want to get some concert action in before then, we highly recommend catching Black Mountain on Wednesday (June 30th).  These psych rockers’ sound bring to mind artists like Dead Meadow, BRMC, The Black Angels, Darker My Love and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

All Music Guide says that this Vancouver-based band’s music “busts open half-lidded Velvet Underground fetishisms with squalls of Blue Cheer guitar, and further channels the heady sounds of the late ’60s with a moodily dwelling organ.”  Not bad, eh? We’re giving away tickets to this one below, so read on to find out how to win!
