The Cactus Club, 10 p.m. Two of Milwaukee’s most novel new bands share this bill. The Candliers take inspiration from old folk, country and ragtime- era swing—basically any music that you can play with a banjo. After performing their cheer songs for audiences at just about every notable club in the city, they finally put out their first release this fall, a 7-inch split with The Trusty Knife. John The Savage, a Bay View band that wondrously emerged in time for this summer’s Bay View Bash, kicks up a lot of drunken racket with accordions, a trumpet and, occasionally, a megaphone.
