WMSE Cover Milwaukee Concert - 3/30/12

Thank goodness for WMSE.
WMSE (91.7) is the college radio station for the Milwaukee School of Engineering and pretty much the only station worth listening to in the Milwaukee area. Last year WMSE ran a Kickstarter campaign to buy new in-studio recording equipment. If you gave a minimum of $15, you received a ticket to a concert as a thank you gift. That concert was Friday night on the MSOE campus. The theme for the concert was “Cover Milwaukee”, where current Milwaukee bands cover past Milwaukee band’s songs. Saturday Night Duets kicked off the concert with a quiet and laid back version of the Frogs “Homos”. They followed with a nice slow rendition of perhaps Milwaukee’s most famous band, next to the Violent Femmes (but maybe not as popular) of “Good Things” by the BoDeans. My favorite Milwaukee band Couch Flambeau (top photo) was next, performing “Psycho in the House”, “Helvetica” and a Testa Rosa song. Other highlights included a reunited performance from the R&B Cadets featuring Milwaukee legend Paul Cebar
(middle photo). De La Buena (bottom photo) ended the evening performing Paul Cebar’s “The Gimp Sparrow”, giving it their stamp of Afro-Cuban Latin funk groove with a little psychedelic thrown in to get the crowd moving. The only downside to the evening was they ran out of Pabst.
