The UV Race w/ Sat. Nite Duets and Uncle Larry
It’s not often that Milwaukee is visited by Australian bands, and Melbourne’s The UV Race brings something special with them. A glammy pastiche of shifty punk and guitar-pop, The UV Race’s most recent album, Racism, shifts between minute-long punk themes like “I’m A Pig” (which features actual oinking) and psychedelic space rock arrangements that last six times as long, such as the album’s closing track “Memenonome.” Ubiquitous local indie-rockers Sat. Nite Duets will open with their effortlessly youthful, catchy tunes. The band recently collaborated with The Fatty Acids to record Torrential Zen, a 7-inch EP split between the two Milwaukee groups and two Brooklyn bands, Dinosaur Feathers and Radical Dads.
