Description [edit]
There's nothing incredibly sexy about Shank Hall. It's not the biggest music venue in the city (but its capacity of 300 is great for that up-close and personal concert feeling), but it is one of the best places to see a show. No bright lights and glitter on the outside of this place, but Shank Hall always pulls in great national acts, as well as Milwaukee regulars like Pat McCurdy and Paul Cebar.

American Murder Song Presents: The Donner Party

During American Murder Song’s debut year, Terrance Zdunich and Saar Hendelman led audiences back in time to 1816, to the infamous inn that served as the hunting ground for America’s first female serial killer, pretty Lavinia Fisher. Now, inspired by 1960’s television spook shows, they have imagined the one and only true retelling of The Donner Party experience via the lens of their own, fictional Twilight Zone style show: The Black Wagon. Join Terrance (Repo! The Genetic Opera) and Saar (The Devil’s Canival) for a historical, musical reenactment of cannibalistic proportions at The Donner Party Reunion Tour.
