Milwaukee acts critique MilwaukeeHome's inaugural Austin experiment

By Evan Rytlewski
In the lead up to this year’s South by South Music festival in Austin, MilwaukeeHome’s plans to premiere a daylong stage spotlighting more than two dozen Milwaukee acts were invariably described with one of two words: “ambitious” or “overambitious,” depending on how any given commentator viewed the stage’s chances of success.
