Band from Milwaukee - Madison venues/bands?

Postby lalaland » Tue Mar 03, 2009 7:52 pm

Hey everybody, I'm the guitarist in a Milwakuee based band called Toad King. We recently went out and toured in Colorado, but now we're back home. We have yet to play in Madison, and would really like to but I'm kinda stabbing in the dark here.

Any venues to check out, or people to get in touch with?
Thanks in advance!

I have little to do with the music scene here, but the Frequency seems to be a favorite with local bands and fans alike.

I would also recommend Mr. Roberts based on your influences and a quick listen to a couple of your myspace tracks. Although Roberts is open to most styles of music, kind of caters to the jam band genre. They also pay a guarentee and have a bit of a built-in crowd (depending on who is playing at other Madison venues on a particular nite).

I would. The more people you get in front of the better. Maybe I'm wrong.

This member of a Milwaukee band likes playing Madison as much as is feasible. Then again, we've always been better received outside of Milwaukee.

I was wondering why you are always wearing that BoDeans t-shirt when I see you at shows. Its all so clear now.

I got an underage drinking ticket at a BoDeans show. It was the last BoDeans show I was at, and now I am well over 21.
