For the previous two years, we at Tone Madison have had the pleasure of picking the music for a Sunday stage at the Willy Street Fair. But for this year’s fair, on Saturday, September 14 and Sunday, September 15, we’ve teamed up with Half-Stack Sessions to book a two-day lineup, on a new stage located near the corner of Williamson and Paterson Streets. (Find us near The Wisco’s patio. There’s shade and stuff!) The highlights include Saturday headliner Dash Hounds, Sunday headliner Teenage Moods (our one out-of-town act, from the Twin Cities), and Kase, a genre-stretching collaboration between DJ knowsthetime, trumpeter Jamie Breiwick, and bassist John Christensen.

Here’s the full lineup. Speaking of our joint efforts with the Half-Stack folks, don’t forget to join us the weekend after the fair for the inaugural Infamous Local Fest.
