Kyle Kinane.

Kyle Kinane.

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.

Tales From Planet Earth Film Festival. Nov. 3 through 5, multiple venuesThe Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies’ biennial film fest explores current environmental issues through a compelling mix of documentary and feature selections. This year’s films center on the intersection of environmental struggles and the land rights of indigenous and marginalized peoples, with a scope that extends from Standing Rock to Liberia.

Fox Face. Nov. 17, North Street Cabaret. The slashing, dark-edged Milwaukee punk outfit will play this show to celebrate the release of its first full-length, Spoil + Destroy. It will also be the first album respected punk label Dirtnap Records has released since announcing its relocation to MadisonNew Noise Magazine recently premiered the album’s first single.

Colin Quinn. March 3, MajesticThe gregariously grizzled former host of MTVs proto-slacker game show Remote Control, Comedy Central’s dearly departed Tough Crowd, and Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update brings (presumably) a new hour of comedy following the release of his recent-ish Netflix special The New York Story.

Kyle Kinane. March 8 through 10, Comedy Club on StateFew stand-ups have gotten as much milage and vividly, charmingly weird material out of being a schlumpy fuck-up as Kyle Kinane. I mean, how many comics out there can stick the landing on bits about personal bouts with gout? His stops in Madison over the years have been excellent. The same goes for his stand-up records, the latest being 2016’s Loose In Chicago.

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.
