How will the Milwaukee bus system survive Doyle’s vetoes?

Tonight @ Cactus Club - 10:00 PM

The Danger were born of Kenosha's rigid punk scene, but soon relocated to Milwaukee to explore more varied, melodic sounds, with a particular emphasis on poppy, British invasion rock 'n' roll and flashy, T. Rex-inspired glam rock. They've been playing behind their polished album A Northern City Shift since 2006, but promise that a new disc is on the . . .
