Tonight’s Set Details: THE DISCO BISCUITS and RAILROAD EARTH 10.29.09

Heads up music lovers!

The Disco Biscuits are playing the Wisconsin Union Theater TONIGHT!



In the years since the band sprang out of the University of Pennsylvania party scene in the mid-’90s, the Disco Biscuits have brought together the worlds of jam bands and electronic music with its “trance-fusion” sound that mixes the free-form improvisations of jazz with the hypnotic rhythms which provided the soundtrack for rave culture.


Doors: 6pm

Orchard Lounge: 7pm

Ott: 8pm

The Disco Biscuits:

Set One: 9 -10:15pm

Set Two: 10:45 – 12:30pm


Warm up your Halloween weekend by checking out this show! Tickets are still available at The Wisconsin Union Theater box office (608-265-2787). See you there!


Also: RAILROAD EARTH is playing The Barrymore!



Railroad Earth is a fun bunch of well-weathered Folk players, and they put on a heck of a show. Lead singer Todd Scheaffer always looks pleased with his bandmates, while mandolin master John Skehan just flat out rips on his instrument; and multi-instrumentalist Andy Goessling nonchalantly commands his beautifully subtle spotlight jams. – Kim Ruehl

Doors: 7pm

Great American Taxi: 8pm

Railroad Earth:

Set One: 9:15 – 10:15pm

Set Two: 10:45 – 12:00pm

March LIVE- Free Concert Tix and Pics

To all those “True Fans” who wish to reminisce or recreate the memories, this is for YOU! Check out photos from last month’s shows and learn how you can get your pictures posted and win FREE tickets to an upcoming show!

March was a solid month for live music. With 16 different shows, ranging from small cafe performances to full-size theater productions, we witnessed a broad spectrum of musical styles and sounds that hailed from all parts of the U.S. From the hip-hop rhymes of Bronze Nazareth, to the electro-dub of STS9, we drowned ourselves in sound.

As one way to say “Thank You” to those who joined in, we have created this photo recap and a contest that is sure to please your creative palettes.  Send us any photo(s) that you have taken at a True Endeavors concert in 2009 to become automatically eligible to win a FREE PAIR  of tickets to the show of YOUR CHOICE between April 16 – April 24. Yep, you heard us right, that’s 11 shows to choose from (see our calendar).  If we like your photos, they may just end up being posted. All winners will be announced Tuesday, April 14.
