Tone Madison is partnering up with Madison Minutesan email—to bring you some event recommendations every week. 

We’re going to keep this simple, at least for now. Subscribe to Madison Minutes, check the event listings, and look for the orange dots indicating a “Tone Madison Recommends” event.

The dots mean simply that Tone Madison’s team of writers and editors flagged these events, based on what looks most compelling in the week’s cultural lineup. As we have in our previous coverage of events around town, we’ll focus on locally based artists and under-appreciated, out-of-the-way gems.

In 2022, we’ll be working on getting Tone Madison‘s thoughtful, infernally picky event previews back to full steam. For now, we’re very happy to be collaborating with the MM team of Sam Hoisington and Hayley Sperling. They are an actual, small, locally based media outlet, run by two journalists. They’ve focused on serving Madison readers with substantial information, not venture-capital-funded pandering spon-con slop. 

Madison Minutes sends out a big weekly event roundup on Sundays, so we’ll be starting out with the next edition of that, on December 5. You’ll also be able to see our event recommendations in Madison Minutes‘ weekday morning roundup of useful news and info about our city.

The pandemic whiplashed us out of our usual routine for previewing events, and honestly? It’s been hard to whiplash back. As Madison Minutes began including event listings in its handy email newsletter, we started talking with Hayley and Sam about how we might combine our efforts. We’re looking forward to building on this partnership in the new year.
