RSC Club Shows – Bayview Brewhaus

This week we’ll be featuring music from all the bands playing club venues during Radio Summer Camp. Today we feature shows happening at the PyraMax Bank meChecking-Sponsored Stage at the Bayview Brewhaus. A huge thanks must be given to Kevin at Dusty Medical and the Get Drunk DJs for doing all the hard work on this one.

Don’t forget, full festival passes are only $25, and online pre-sales end Thursday at 10:00am.

Friday, July 16th:

Jack Oblivion & the Tennessee Tearjerkers – The release Kevin sent over said is way better than what we could write, so:  “Jack “Oblivian” Yarber of The Tearjerkers was a key figure in the influential, Memphis based Compulsive Gamblers and the legendary ’90s garage-punk band The Oblivians. Though, to only ramble on about Yarber’s work with The Oblivians and skim over his other bands would be a cryin’ shame. Beside the stack of gritty garage-punk that Yarber contributed to, are all of his other records that have consistently become more polished and focused throughout the years.
Yarber was born 100 miles away from Memphis in the small town of Corinth, Mississippi. However, by 1987, the bright lights of Memphis called and Yarber became a permanent fixture in the city that arguably invented rock-n-roll.”

Listen: The Lone Ranger of Love

John Paul Keith & the One Four Fives – Again, from Kevin’s release: “John Paul Keith is a native of Knoxville, TN, who has moved around a lot and played in a lot of bands (The V-Roys, Ryan Adams, The Nevers, Stateside, Harlan T. Bobo, Jack Oblivian, and Jim Dickinson’s garage rock project, Snake Eyes).
Keith moved to Memphis a couple of years ago and hooked with Alvin Youngblood Hart’s former rhythm section, a pedal steel guitarist, and a keyboard player. The result is the grand tradition of Memphis rock n roll, updated for modern ears.”

Listen: Knoxville Town

Fair Weather Friends – Almost brand-new to the Milwaukee scene, you can probably guess, given the rest of the line-up, where Fair Weather Friends sit on the musical spectrum. They call themselves a “Wisconsin super group featuring members of Mystery Girls, Goodnight Loving, Juke boyds, Bear Proof Suit, and Sunday Sinners. Yeah, should be super fun, right?

The Get Drunk DJs – Do we really need to tell you about the Get Drunk DJs? Why yes, we do. Kevin and Luke just celebrated five years of doing their thing, and we could say all sorts of nice things about that, but instead, we’ll just re-post what Luke said, unedited, on their MySpace…because, well, it’s entertaining.

“WE COULD ALL PRETEND THAT I CAN COME UP WITH SOMETHING MILDLY AMUSING, BUT SERIOUSLY KEVIN AND I PROMOTE, BOOK AND DJ (SEMI)TASTEFUL ROCK SHOWS. I’M NOT TRYING TO BE ALL “HEY LOOK AT ME, I’M SO COOL. MY NAME IS LUKE AND SHIT. I LOOK LIKE A FAG!” IT’S JUST THAT THIS IS WHAT THIS, OUR, MY, SPACE IS ALL ABOUT. PLUS THIS WOULD ACTUALLY BE REALLY FUNNY IF THERE WAS A WAY TO HAVE A BUNCH OF FART NOISES, SLIDE WHISTLES AND OLDE TYMEY BIKE HORN SOUNDS INSERTED RANDOMLY IN THIS PARAGRAPH. AND IF TONY SAGGER COULD BE DOING THE IMPERSONATION OF ME IN THE ABOVE MOCKING, SURLY QUOTE. FEACE OUT, FEE-OTCH LUKE CHAPPELLE”

Saturday, July 17th:

Codebreaker – WAY on the other end of the spectrum from Friday’s line-up, Saturday at the Brewhaus brings a mad dance-a-thon if we’ve ever seen one. Headlining are the hard-working stalwarts of their Milwaukee scene, Codebreaker, masters all those things that make the booty shake…remixes, beat building, etc. We’re really excited to have them for the festival, and it was pretty cool selecting them, then building the rest of the show around them.

Listen: R.I.M.L.

You, You’re Awesome
– Once you see this band you will no doubt say, “Yes, they are, in fact, awesome!” No joke. We don’t know if Cincinnati is know for fantastic electro-rock, but these guys found inspiration somewhere. We feel obligated to mention that they listed by SPIN.com as one of the “25 Artists to see at CMJ.” We don’t feel obligated, however, to share their music with you. We simply think it’s great, so we think you should hear and see You, You’re Awesome.

The New Loud
– One of the hardest working bands in Milwaukee, The New Loud are constantly putting out music and videos. They play a pretty energetic brand of something like Electro-Indie-New Wave (sorry, we had those categories but we need to say something, right?) that should be a great way to get the crowd moving.Listen: Don’t Dance
