Nov 28, 2003David Rogers w/ SpotDavid Rogers - Singer/songwriter from Iowa City, IA who combines the intimacy of folk with acoustic pop dynamics.

"David's music floats in the window, tender & strong as his heart, calling you to come on out, to listen. I'm telling you, he's a good one!" - Greg Brown, Red House Records

"There is a diamond in his throat." - Stuart Davis, Post Apocalyptic Records

Spot:
"...the man makes some very interesting but very hard to describe music. Certainly worth a listen for the musically adventurous." - Dirty Linen

"...Spot can really play his ass off." - Mike Watt

"...(it all) makes sense, in an acid-folk, progressive-bluegrass, front porch fingerpicking kind of way." - Metrotimes, Detroit, MI
Dec 5, 2003Ticklepenny Corner w/ Amelia RoykoIntelligent, funny, excellently played, clever... This Milwaukee band combines violin, banjo, harmonica, ap steel and a great, understated rhythm section to create some of the most emotionally effective music around today.

The two lead vocalists, Noah Riemer and Beth Spransy, have equally engaging voices - Riemer's for its smiling quality and Spransy for its unshakable melancholy.

Drawing from memories of her life, Amelia writes folk and rock songs that push at the edges. Royko's performances are captivating as she moves naturally between self-restraint and full-out release. She delivers nothing less than pure honesty and soul, precision and passion.
Dec 12, 2003The FrogsThe Frogs are a Milwaukee cult-rock band. The shows are unpredictable but always entertaining.

Dec 19, 2003Fuzzy LogicIn 1995 Biff Blumfumgagne, Tom Hamer, and R. Virgil Ellis formed Fuzzy Logic as a small-scale performance group to exploit Biff and Tom's arcane and uncanny musical resources, in relation to performance poetry and also to explore fuzzy thinking in art.

Biff brings violin, therolin, electric mandolin and other devices that may not end with "lin". Tom plays the drumset, MIDI electronics, tuned gongs, various toys and inventions. R. Virgil (Ron) Ellis performs his poetry into a microphone.

Ron has long been interested in the relationship, or lack thereof, between science and Buddhism. The idea for a performance group called Fuzzy Logic comes from reading Bart Kosko's book, Fuzzy Thinking: the New Science of Fuzzy Logic. He has written The Tenting Cantos, a series of 100 poems which explore mental states and meditation. Tom and Ron are currently producing an archive of performances of all 100 Cantos culled from studio and live recordings with Dangerous Odds, The Chamber Rock Ensemble, Fuzzy Logic and including new studio work.
Dec 20, 2003Sam Shaber w/ Marianne FlemmingFolk-Influenced Pop is how Sam Shaber describes her music. Her soulful vocals, strong guitar playing, and rich but unfussy songs really grab your ear and make an impression.


Marianne Flemming divides her time between Madison and Florida. Her shows are high-energy affairs that always get the house a'rockin' with her fun blues-ey acoustic rock.
