I’ll be at the Little Ones show tonight at the Doug Fir. If any readers plan on going drop me a line or look for me. I’ll be the one with the Red Sox hat on. Their 2008 release is one of those records I wish I picked up at the beginning of the summer, rather than the tail end of fall but whatevs. It’s the perfect type of innocuous pop record, but one that gets stuck on the roof of your mouth for days like a giant scoop of peanut butter. It doesn’t take much before you’re humming along or tapping your feet to their melodies.
What Made Milwaukee Famous is opening up. These guys from Austin, Texas (not from Wisconsin!) just released a free five-song EP on Barsuk Records, The Sugarhill Sessions EP features stripped-down renditions of songs from both 2006’s Trying To Never Catch Up and their new release What Doesn’t Kill Us.
I’m pretty excited about this show since both bands deliver a fun pop sound. Doors at 8 p.m. and knowing the Doug Fir it probably starts around 9:30 or 10 p.m.
