Call Me Lightning w/ Liquor Store
Here’s something to look forward to during the longest, coldest, darkest stretch of winter that lies ahead: a new Call Me Lightning record. The Milwaukee power trio has long been one of the bright spots in the city’s rock scene, but they cemented that reputation with 2010’s instant classic When I Am Gone My Blood Will Be Free, an awesomely vital record that filters The Who’s epic stadium rock through the lens of a punk basement show. Judging from “Now We Have Begun,” the first track teased from the group’s upcoming Human Hell, the band hasn’t loosened up on their signature intensity one bit. Here’s hoping they previous some new material that this show.
