Sleazy Madison is taking over our Twitter for New Year’s Eve

Ring in 2020 with archival nuggets from Madison’s musty, crusty past.

The Sleazy Madison account on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Tumblr is one of the absolute best local internet things. Through oft-yellowed newsprint ads, Sleazy Madison offers us a window into the strip clubs, trash movies, wrestling events, and wacky business ideas that dotted the city’s landscape in the not-so-distant past. From Pizza On Wheels to the Dangle Lounge on East Main Street, these clippings are so delightful because they’re so far removed from all the stories Madison likes to tell about itself.

As we prepare to cross over into 2020, Sleazy Madison is taking over the Tone Madison Twitter account with a barrage of seedy New Year’s content from the 1960s and ‘70s. Follow along and keep your eye on Sleazy Madison throughout the year.

Local art shows how people in Madison think and feel—how Madison looks, and how Madison looks at itself.
