‘The Cease is Increase’ Book Release Party
Outside of a couple of breakthrough acts and a few fondly remembered cult favorites, Milwaukee’s early punk and alternative never received much attention outside of the city, nor had it ever been particularly well documented. Author Steve Nodine looked to change that with his new book The Cease is Increase: An Oral History of Milwaukee’s Punk and Alternative Music Scene, which features interviews with many of the key players who created a vibrant (if often overlooked) independent music scene in a city that preferred hair metal and cover bands. Three local bands will play this release show for the book: Law and Love, The Newly Damaged and Bicentennial Rub.
