WMSE's Backyard BBQ: The Greatest Lakes (4pm), Mike Benign Compulsion (5pm), Split Lip Rayfield (6pm), Indigenous (7:45pm), Los Straitjackets (9:15pm)
WMSE is thrilled to have Los Straitjackets headline their FREE CONCERT, The Backyard BBQ on September 6th at Cathedral Square (corner of Jefferson and Wells).
The event is a thank you to our listeners and members for their support as we are truly a community powered station and without your support we would not exist.
The event kicks off at 4:00 pm with Milwaukee’s own The Greatest Lakes, followed by Mike Benign Compulsion, arriving from their home state of Kansas, cowpunk bluegrass,
band Splitlip Rayfield leads into blues band Indigenous, and finally topping the night, surf punk instrumental band Los Straitjackets. This is guaranteed to be a great day of music
and all brought to you by WMSE.
Station Manager Tom Crawford explains, “It’s not just about hosting a free concert for our members and listeners. It’s about creating a musical experience that everyone will enjoy.
What goes better with a backyard bbq, then blues, bluegrass punk, all topped by a band that wears Mexican wrestling masks tearing through some of the fastest instrumental surf punk
you can’t even imagine. Los Straitjackets are the ultimate showmen.”
