Brady Street to host first Eastside Music Tour
We all love our bar crawls here in Milwaukee. But what about a music crawl?
Over 50 bands. More than 25 local businesses. One street. One day. $15. And you get a fanny pack included in ticket price. Come on. You don't have to admit it, but I know you secretly want that fanny pack.
ART Milwaukee is partnering with Eastside businesses to present the first Eastside Music Tour on Brady Street next Saturday, March 2. Local bands and DJs will set up shop in venues (some of them unexpected ones) and perform from 4 to 11 p.m. The goal is to highlight Milwaukee's vibrant music scene while raising money to repaint the Cass Street School creatures.
"We are extremely excited about the opportunity to showcase Milwaukee's thriving music scene along with the local shops of Brady Street," said Jeremy Fojut, president and founder of ART Milwaukee, in a press release. "Guests are encouraged to visit coffee shops, retailers, restaurants and more and immerse themselves with great music, food and we hope to encourage a large buy local campaign."
Local eateries, watering holes and coffee shops like Rochambo, Crisp, Jo-Cats, the Up and Under Pub, World of Beer and Casablanca are just a few places where attendees can catch musical acts like Fresh Cut Collective, Evan Christian, All Good Things and Fatty Acids. See the full line-up here.
Tickets don't ensure admission to every event, though, due to capacity issues, so each venue is first-come, first-serve.
The $15 ticket package includes a fanny pack, access to every show (if capacity allows) and discounts on food and beverages. For $25 you get all that and a T-shirt.
Should be fun but there is similar established event in Racine Saturday night called Thoughts For Food (thoughtsforfood.org) with 53 acts Sat night at 15 venues all for the Racine County Food Bank. Admission to all venues is ten bucks and two or more non-perishable food items. Most venues are within short walking distance of each other but there will be shuttles as well. All styles of music, some locals, some touring bands.
