Half-Stack Sessions and Tone Madison are teaming up this September to present Infamous Local Fest. It’s a weekend-long program of music and workshops that showcase Madison’s music community and enrich it with practical, hands-on help.

The inaugural IL kicks off Friday, September 20 at The Winnebago with music from Gender Confetti, LINE, DJ Quinley, and Leslie Damaso with Mr. Chair. There is a discount on admission for Tone Madison Sustainers.


On Saturday, September 21, things move over to Communication for a day of workshops:

  • Musician, activist, and journalist Jes Skolnik will lead a session on bystander intervention tactics.

  • Ellie Erickson and Koriana Kent will lead a workshop on maintaining amps and guitars.

  • Musicians will have the chance to work with local artists to create some custom-made buttons that they can take away as merch.

  • There will also be a workshop on operating a PA and DJ gear.

  • More details to come shortly on a Saturday night show at Communication.

Finally, on Sunday, September 22, Communication will host a record sale and a series of live recording sessions. Artists can sign up for the latter using this form.

Local art shows how people in Madison think and feel—how Madison looks, and how Madison looks at itself.
