Remember last month when we had a live podcast recording at the High Noon Saloon and called it The Tone Cluster? Well, we’re returning to the High Noon on December 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. for another round of music, community, and deep-digging conversations about arts and culture in Madison. The event is free and we’d love to see you there.

This time we’ve recruited a year-in-review panel to help us look back, if a bit prematurely, on the highlights of 2015. Michael Penn II is a writer, journalist, and rapper better known as CRASHprez. Emili Earhart is the music director at WSUM-FM. Evan Woodward is a wide-ranging DJ who spins frequently at Natt Spil, Maduro, and other venues, and also wields his sonic curation skills as a manger at Strictly Discs. I’ll be leading the conversation as we delve into the ups and downs of Madison’s arts and culture communities in 2015 and think about what’s ahead for next year.

The podcast recording itself starts at 6:30. Before and after that, Evan will be spinning some of his favorite music released in 2015.

Parts of the podcast will air later on WORT-FM’s In Our Backyard news show, and you can get the full thing by subscribing to our podcast feed on iTunes.

Thanks to WORT and MadCity Music Exchange for sponsoring the event.

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.
