DJ Deadbeat + Jake Simon, House of M, Konfadent, Malicious MV’s @ Stonefly (735 E. Center), 10 p.m.
DJ Deadbeat, who has been making the rounds in clubs and more recently as Kid Cut Up’s cohort on Tuesday nights on 91.7 FM, WMSE, will be hitting the turntables with Jake Simon and Milwaukee’s House of M, Konfadent, Malicious and the MV’s as they keep the crowd enlightened with their rhymes.
The Figgs + Beach Patrol, The Nice Outfit @ Linneman’s (1001 E. Locust), 10 p.m.
Making a double-stop (one covert, one co-venue) in Milwaukee before they head off to a five-header in Appleton and Green Bay, New York’s The Figgs have been a favorite for Milwaukee’s pop-rock set even back when they were playing the long-gone Globe East on North Avenue.
The French Horn Rebellion + DJ Kid Color, Beards of Paradise @ Points East Pub (1501 N. Jackson), 10 p.m.
The French Horn Rebellion are indeed into creating a ruckus with brass (and laptops), as their name implies. Catch them when they play with DJ Kid Color and Beards of Paradise. Catch our story about the razzing rebels *here*.
Saturday, February 7th
Couch Flambeau + Cheer-Accident @ Cactus Club (2496 S. Wentworth), 10p.m.
The magic of Milwaukee’s impishly irreverent Couch Flambeau is very sporadic (“we never broke up. whenever we play a show, people think, ‘oh, a reunion’.” vocalist/guitarist Jay Tiller once told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). The irony-pros have their tactics down, keeping diehard fans hungry to hear punk classics like “Steak” and “Pork Wing”, sounding as good as they did back when they played with Big Black.
