Punks Picnic at Lake Farm County Park

September 10, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Madison band Venus In Furs hosts this annual outdoor potluck of feisty music and family-friendly hangs. This year’s 11-band lineup includes Madison duo Mhos & Ohms (6:40 p.m.), who released a new album, Crypsis, in August. Drummer-vocalist Tony Leskinen and guitarist Jeremiah Wunderlin churn up a bleak yet atmospheric take on post-punk, resourcefully layering guitar figures to create a sense of itchy unease on “Stream of Misery.” There are welcome reminders of Unwound in the eerie syncopated attack of closing track “Tried To Solve,” leaving plenty of room for the dissonance to ring out under Leskinen’s harsh-edged vocals. Other sets throughout the day include VIF (4:40 p.m.), Cats On Leashes (2 p.m.), and Sons Of Atom (5:20 p.m.). —Scott Gordon
