Trapper Schoepp & The Shades
Tonight @ The Miramar Theatre, 8 p.m.
Milwaukee songwriter Trapper Schoepp may only be 19 years old—he’s a UW-Milwaukee sophomore—but he sounds wise beyond his years on his latest album, Lived and Moved, which he recorded with his band The Shades at Howl Street studio with producer Justin Perkins. Drawing from the rootsy leanings of The Band, Wilco and The Replacements, Schoepp sings a well-crafted set of songs about a life in transition. The $5 cover for his show tonight with openers The Battle Royale, The Last Rhino and Ian Olvera & The Sleepwalkers includes a copy of the CD.
