After an excruciatingly long wait, the Crystal Corner Bar is finally punching its way back into Madison’s live music fold. One of the first lineups the beloved independent bar/venue will be hosting is a classic encapsulation of what makes the Crystal so endearing to so many. Power-pop titans Proud Parents, dreamy shoegaze stalwarts Cult Of Lip, and punchy post-punk act Lunar Moth make up an appealing bill that caters to three of Madison’s most prominent punk subgenres.

Lunar Moth will be playing just a few weeks after the release of their latest single, “Sunshine Veins.” Cult Of Lip’s appearance will continue to establish the band’s new lineup/era, following the semi-recent addition of keyboardist Emili Earhart (an occasional Tone Madison contributor). Proud Parents will be making their first appearance on a traditional bill in a while. Previously, Proud Parents’ last two appearances were both Madison festival slots (Orton Park and the Dirtnap Super Show Extravaganza) in which the band delivered characteristically energetic sets. All three acts will have good reason to play their hearts out, which can only benefit the audience. —Steven Spoerl
