A few of the best shows coming up in town this summer, both outdoors and in.
Summer is almost here, and that means there’s going to be a bonkers amount of live music emanating from fields, slapping into the state office buildings downtown, and dissippating over the lakes. On this week’s podcast we cut through the noise and look at a few of the standout shows, with a balance of the indoor, the outdoor, and the indoor-outdoor (i.e. the Shitty Barn). Of course, these are hardly the only shows worth seeing in Madison this summer, and we’ll be previewing much more stuff in our weekly calendar and other features. Here’s a cheat sheet of the shows discussed in this episode:
