MTV's "The Real World" series is all about roommate tension, controversy, scandal and, apparently, Milwaukee-made songstress Jayme Dawicki.
Last week "The Real World" Hollywood" played her song "Crush" during an episode, and, according to Dawicki, her song "Paper Dolls" will appear in tonight's episode. The song is on her new album "Shatter Queen," which she released this past March.
Dawicki plays Summerfest twice this year: June 26 at the Cascio Groove Garage at 3 p.m. and on June 29 at the Potawatomi / OnMilwaukee.com stage at 5 p.m.
You can read OnMilwaukee.com's interview with her here.
And you can see the MTV clip on her Myspace.
OnMilwaukee.com staff writer Julie Lawrence grew up in Wauwatosa and has lived her whole life in the Milwaukee area.
As any “word nerd” can attest, you never know when inspiration will strike, so from a very early age Julie has rarely been seen sans pen and little notebook. At the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee it seemed only natural that she major in journalism. When OnMilwaukee.com offered her an avenue to combine her writing and the city she knows and loves in late 2004, she knew it was meant to be. Around the office, she answers to a plethora of nicknames, including “Lar,” (short for “Larry,” which is short for “Lawrence”) as well as the mysteriously-sourced “Bill Murray.”
