What Made Milwaukee Famous w/ The Happen-Ins

What do Willie Nelson, The Toadies, and Ghostland Observatory have in common?  They are all bands that you should definitely know if you live in Texas.  Add to that list What Made Milwaukee famous.  The Austin indie-rock group has graced the stages of Lollapalooza, SXSW, Austin City Limits Festival, and were the first unsigned band to perform for the infamous Austin City Limits taping.  They have been incognito recently, diligently working on their new album, “You Can’t Fall Off The Floor.”

With their “kickstarter” campaign, WMMF hopes to shoot a video for their first single off the record, completely funded by their fans.  They have until June 9 at 4:59 AM EDT to meet their goal with minimum pledges starting at $1 in return for high-fives.  For $10 donations, fans will receive a download of the new album to be premiered at Beauty Ballroom on Friday, June 15.

TransistorSix will be conducting a live taping of the show, shot in Super8, giving  the performance an intimate element, and selling 50 limited edition, hand screen-printed posters.  Don’t discount local opening act, The Happen-Ins, who teeter between Blues and R&B and guarantee to get you in the mood.

Tickets are a steal at $10.  You might as well drop a $20- donate to their Kickstarter video campaign and go to the live taping.  Live concert + free album download + chance to be in a music video = Winning.
