Kiki’s Righteous Session at McPike Park
August 19, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
One of Madison’s most cherished and enduring venues is the Far East Side-ish basement of tireless music fan Kiki Schueler’s house. The general vibe of Kiki’s House of Righteous Music—lots of twangy and/or rocking acts of various stripes, a healthy embrace of the occasional sonic wildcard, and a devotion to local acts—gets an airing out in this recurring summer collaboration with the Sessions at McPike Park series. The 2022 edition of Kiki’s Righteous Session begins with The Low Czars, a Madison cover band that digs skillfully into the back pages of power pop, garage rock, and R&B. Jason Narducy (lately of Bob Mould’s unstoppable power trio) plays here in his ferociously catchy solo project Split Single, behind the 2021 album Amplificado, and Nashville’s Aaron Lee Tasjan closes things out. On a second, smaller tent stage, jazz guitarist Bill Roberts will be playing with his combo in-between the main-stage bands. —Scott Gordon
