Jonathan Richman.

Jonathan Richman.

We’ve always got our eyes peeled for shows being announced in Madison. Here’s what stands out from the past week’s newly added events. Keep up with more events, thoughtfully previewed by our writers, in our Calendar section.

Beau Wanzer. Union South Sett, Oct. 20. This excellent Chicago electronic artist announced this show a bit last-minute, so Tone Madison‘s Emili Earhart already has a proper preview written.

Jonathan Richman. Union South Sett, Nov. 8 The wide-eyed wonder and comic romanticism that Jonathan Richman has mastered over the years comes through best in his live sets, where he’s accompanied by just his nylon-stringed guitar and drummer Tommy Larkins. His work in the 1970s with The Modern Lovers is be a pretty important part of his legacy too, but these stripped-down live shows take place in a beautiful little world of their own.

The Low Czars. Nov. 11, High Noon Saloon. The Low Czars are a long-running Madison cover band who draw their set lists from across obscure and familiar corners of power-pop, British Invasion rock, R&B, and psychedelia. The band also boasts several very good singers, and enough instrumental finesse to treat the source material with care. At this show, they’ll be performing Love’s 1967 psych/folk classic Forever Changes in its entirety. The band only does this every so often, and it’s just as impressive and fun as their more regular grab-bag sets.

Yaeji. Nov. 18, RathskellerNYC/Seoul producer and vocalist Yaeji creates playful and intriguing amalgamations of house, trap music, and pop on the self-titled EP she released in March.

Alice Cooper. March 14, OrpheumIt’s worth noting that the horror-glam rocker is still putting out records and will be 70 by the time this show happens, but I’m just gonna leave this here:

At a time when Madison is going through a lot of change, we want Tone Madison to be something you can count on. You can rely on us to spotlight the artists, musicians, and ideas that make up the fabric of our city. You can rely on us to challenge the status quo with inventive, adversarial journalism, including our coverage of abortion rights, housing, and labor. 

 

But here's the thing: reader support is crucial our survival. We'll keep writing the articles you love (or love to hate) for as long as we can—but we need your help to keep our small, independent publication going.

 

If you make a new monthly donation today, NewsMatch will match it 24x! Will you help us continue to tell Madison's stories?

Maybe later
