This Sunday, it’s a love fest for the old Milwaukee music scene and the ole Wisconsin-Illinois thang when Bobby Steele of Tense Experts comes to town with his current band, Law & Love, straight up from Rockford-Ill to play Kochanski’s World-Famous Sunday Matinee (2-6 p.m.).
Comin’ up with ’em are Long-shot, another indie rock + acoustic blues + outlaw country band from Rockford. John and Robin of The Cow Ponies open up the four-hour show starting 2 p.m., playing acoustic versions of Cow Ponies originals sprinkled with country covers. A special welcome to to scene members coming fresh from New Wave Fest at Shank Hall on Farwell in Milwaukee the night before. #hairofthedog #daydrinkin
See you Sunday afternoon at Kochanski’s, y’all! xo
Hi y’all: The night before we head up to Appleton-Wisco with the Xposed 4heads for dem WAMIs, we’re hoggin’ the stage at Circle-A. Tom T’ll kick things off with an acoustic set (John & Robin will lend vocals, Keith’ll hop in on pedal steel here and there) (Andy will drink). John & Robin will do a second acoustic set of Cow Ponies, Everly Brothers, and Gram Parsons songs. At 8:45 Andy will stop drinking (not) and the whole band’ll convene and play out the night. It’ll be like looking at The Cow Ponies through a prism or something.
Oh, and this night marks The Cow Ponies premier of the Greg X. Liber tune “Sex to Get Love”! Last time we did that song was with Rock-a-Dials at Lest We Forget in 2012. (Love and miss ya, dearest Greg.) Lookin’ forward to seein’ all of you this Saturday night, then in Appleton on Sunday at the WAMIs, where we’ll see if we win “Best Country Artist”! xo
