What Made Milwaukee Famous

Wed, July 23, Doors: 9:30 pm - Show: 10:00 pm - 21+ - $10  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
What Made Milwaukee Famous has been a stalwart of the Austin music scene since their inception in 2003. The three original members, Michael Kingcaid (vocals, guitar, keyboards), John Farmer (bass), and Jason Davis (guitars, vocals), each bring a diverse range of influences to the table, allowing them to seamlessly shift between genres at the drop of a hat. With the release of their first two records, Trying to Never Catch Up and What Doesn't Kill Us on Seattle's Barsuk imprint, the band has been touted for their abilities to channel strong musicianship and diverse song-writing into instantly, addictive hooks. Their "elegant pop" (Billboard) has landed them on the bill at a number of the mammoth festivals including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Sasquatch, SXSW and Lollapalooza, highlighted by a taping on PBS's prestigious Austin City Limits with Franz Ferdinand. They have also shared the stage with the likes of Arcade Fire, The Black Keys, The National, Snow Patrol, The Walkmen, TV on the Radio, and the Pretenders to name a few; a testament to their musical diversity and mutual respect with other artists in the industry.

When the Smoke Clears

Overlake

Thu, July 24, Doors: 5:00 pm - Show: 5:45 pm - All Ages - $5  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
Overlake was formed in Jersey City, NJ by Tom Barrett and Lysa Opfer, who found a shared love of 80's & 90's alternative and indie rock while performing in another band. "We would stay late after practices," said Lysa, "Tom on drums and me on a Rhodes, sometimes even switching up the instrumentation, and just pound out really cool, long, melodic noise jams, reminiscent of our influences. It was a lot of fun."

The Seed Of Something (record release)

Sat, July 26, Doors: 5:00 pm - Show: 5:45 pm - All Ages - $5  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
There's something rotten in Des Moines. No, really. This scrappy rock'n'roll quartet's self-titled debut is proof. The Seed of Something innocently gathers up the detritus of '90s indie rock, '60s garage rock, and '70s punk and shapes it into a beautifully tragic bricolage that mostly speaks to an underlying discontent -- about police, school, dreams, people who don't like the Talking Heads... everything except music. "I'm drowning," the band's two-man songwriting team brays on "Soundwaves," the dizzily chugging opener, "and there's no place I'd rather be." As with Be Your Own Pet, Iceage, or, hell, even Odd Future, it's the kind of group where their relative youth -- none was older than 18 when this was recorded -- matters only because the music has an energy no geezer can replicate.

I Am Heresy

Mon, July 28, Doors: 5:00 pm - Show: 5:45 pm - All Ages - $10  Artist Website
Kevin Harden presents...
I AM HERESY's sound is an eruption channeling the passionate hardcore/punk fury of early Boysetsfire streaking ferociously down the middle of the metallic-tinged prowess and influences of fellow hardcore giants Integrity and Converge. Imposing. Frenetic. Unrelenting. And certainly unrepentant. After Nathan Gray (also of Boysetsfire) ended The Casting Out the start of a new era was heralded when he teamed up with this son Simon Gray and a wild bunch of likeminded musicians to form I AM HERESY. They released a self-titled debut album that was followed by the "O Day Star, Son Of Dawn"-EP shortly after in March of 2013. At about the same time they did their first European tour as well as shows on the East Coast of the USA including some with their new label mates of Vattnet Viskar,
