Cascio Interstate gives local acts a Summerfest gig


In honor of Summerfest's 40th birthday, Cascio Interstate Music will provide a venue for 40 local bands to perform in the forecourt of the Marcus Amphitheater during the 11 days of the festival.

Under the slogan "Live, Local and Original," the bands will perform in Cascio's Groove Garage at the AMP from 3 to 8 p.m. on each day of the festival.

"Fr over forty years," says Michael Houser, the CEO of Cascio Interstate, Wisconsin's largest music retailer. "Summerfest made a point of showcasing local artists and their music. This year, Cascio Interstate Music is proud to provide opportunity at our exclusively local and original stage for Milwaukee-area bands with the perfect venue to display their outstanding talents, at Cascio's Groove Garage at the AMP."

Among the bands slated to appear are: The Mahp, a WAMI-winning acoustic rock act; guitarist Lyden Moon; Fable & the World Flat, who blend hip-hop and electronica; Spiral Trance, a hard-rock band that has been featured with Dennis Rodman on MTV; Oh MY God, art-rockers whose sound is backed by a wall of chirps, beeps and blips; and, the Scarring Party, which mixes accordion, banjo, tuba, clarinets and percussion.

Other acts include Those Four Guys, The Stilettos, The Berettas, Tom Dark, Shattered Red, Way To Fall, Year of the Gun, Super Custom Deluxe, Revision Text, Monostatic, Tactic, Relativity, Surf Monster, Crumpler, Lithic, Now You Have Audio, Koala Taxi, Kinetic, Robert Allen Jr. Trio, Marcella, Mike Brumm, Fever Marlene, Jayme Dawicki, The Up and Atoms, Binky Tunny, Burbank Cartel, Access Denied, Elixr, Resurrected Grooves, The Color Truth, Perry Weber & The DeVilles, Reaching Scarlet, plus Chick Singer Night hosted by Alaria Taylor.
