Tone Madison Presents

Performances, talks, and more

Tone Madison puts on events throughout the year, including concerts featuring adventurous music from touring and Madison-based artists. Our occasional GateSound series brings performers to the historic Gates of Heaven synagogue in James Madison Park. You can keep up with our events via our Facebook page and newsletter.

At a time when Madison is going through a lot of change, we want Tone Madison to be something you can count on. You can rely on us to spotlight the artists, musicians, and ideas that make up the fabric of our city. You can rely on us to challenge the status quo with inventive, adversarial journalism, including our coverage of abortion rights, housing, and labor. 


But here's the thing: reader support is crucial our survival. We'll keep writing the articles you love (or love to hate) for as long as we can—but we need your help to keep our small, independent publication going.


If you make a new monthly donation today, NewsMatch will match it 24x! Will you help us continue to tell Madison's stories?

Maybe later
