This Friday night, Jan. 15, marks the second annual Local Coverage Concert at Turner Hall Ballroom, 1034 N. 4th St. Tickets cost $10.
"Basically, it's an event wherein a diverse grouping of local bands play 15-minute sets of another local band's music," says Tyler Maas, co-founder and editor of Milwaukee Record, which presents the unique event.
For example, Decilbully will cover Soul Low; GGOOLLDD will play the music of Maritime; Whiskeybelles will pay tribute to Fox Face and so on.
According to Maas, the acts were selected in a draft event at Club Garibaldi last fall which gave them about three months to learn the music of another local band.
All of the proceeds will go to local charities. Last year's event raised approximately $1,200 for Girls Rock Milwaukee and this year's beneficiaries will be Girls Rock and Guest House Of Milwaukee.
