The Blind Shake + Wereworm & Analytik @ The Sugar Maple (441 E. Lincoln), 8 p.m.
Minneapolis’ The Blind Shake are making use of their Spring Fever energy and booking it down to Milwaukee once again to play at The Sugar Maple. Sounding raw and twitchy, they’re not too far off from city-mates, Stnnng, but maybe a bit more of a walk on the psychedelic side. Check out this review *here* for a more accurate description. Also playing: the elusive ‘Wereworm’ of Milwaukee.
