"The rest of the country is always wondering, 'Where is the next big "scene"?' Milwaukee always makes the lists, somewhere behind Seattle, Atlanta, or Austin. We don't really care because we know Milwaukee has truly great talent. People leave for the coasts and the majority return because Milltown is real, significant, influential, supportive, and we know how to party. Artbeat will solidify this, and bring well-deserved exposure to this great artistic cauldron. We are used to working without national attention because no one thinks you can be a fabulous artist AND live in Milwaukee. Artbeat is setting the record straight, we are grateful that Annie's willing to have our backs, putting us out there. We're great artists because we live in Milwaukee. It is cold though, I'll give ya that!" -Alisa Strautmanis, Artbeat Artist
