His & Her Vanities, Cop Circles, Saint Saunter, Cap Alan, and Yid Vicious play the Culture stage on Sunday, September 16.
Last fall we had a great time presenting the music at the Willy Street Fair‘s Sunday stage at the corner of Williamson and Ingersoll. We’ll be back out there on Sunday, September 16 with a Tone Madison-selected lineup of great music from Madison. In addition to the stage itself, we’ll have a Tone Madison booth nearby featuring live drawings from artist Rachal Duggan. Come on out!
The mischievous klezmer ensemble Yid Vicious will kick things off at noon, playing a set of their own music and accompanying local Scottish and English folk-dancing groups with help from pianist Stephanie Rearick.
Next up, at 2:30 p.m., is Saint Saunter, the DJ and production outlet of Queer Pressure co-founder Sarah Akawa, who will be spinning a mix of dance selections and their own original tracks.
Cap Alan, up at 4 p.m., brings an experimental bent to the stage with Jeff Sauer’s Krautrock-inspired drumming and Andrew Fitzpatrick’s playful synth manipulations.
Cop Circles, playing at 5 p.m., is the cheeky but eminently danceable project of producer and vocalist Luke Leavitt, who’s been known to collaborate with last year’s headliner, Mr. Jackson.
Our headliner, at 6 p.m., is Madison band His & Her Vanities, blasting out post-punk full of yearning vocals and angular hooks.
