Last night we checked out What Made Milwaukee Famous playing to a small crowd at Spaceland. Simply put, amazing. We're shocked that more people were not there. Lucky for us, luck for you, they have four more shows within the next nine days here in LA starting Thursday at the Silverlake Lounge.

"Sultan" - What Made Milwaukee Famous

"Resistance" - What Made Milwaukee Famous

Getting back to tonight... Free is good. Transit accessible is good (read, Metro Red Line). Tonight at Let's Independent! at Boardner's, Everest, The Transmissions, and The Bentleys (MP3 below) are playing. Everest were recently signed to Neil Young's Vapor Records label and packed The Echo early when they opened up for Radar Bros during their residency.
