Revival’s a comin yall….

April was a great month for us, my birthday show was a huge success and the bands were fantastic! Locrian provided metal heads with a dose of good ol’ american metal…with covers of bands like Pantera, Anthrax, Prong and all that old school stuff we grew up on as well as some of their own originals. Soul shaker was awesome and we plan on bringing these boys back again soon, so be prepared to have your faces rocked off! Our buddies the Form from milwaukee were in their peak performance mode….playing the best set I have seen them do. All the bands were fantastic, and I had a blast! I think this birthday was indeed the best so far…thanks also to the Kruse in for providing a venue for the chaos!

The Rock n Roll revival is happening May 13 and 14th at Dales Weston lanes, in Weston,WI. The rock n roll revival raises money for school music programs in the area and features 20 bands this year!

Also in the month of May we will be playing Bratfest in Madison, the largest free music fest in the U.S.! Meantooth plays May 27th at 7:45pm and then we will be loading up and heading to the Dry Bean for a closing set with a great Hip Hop/neo soul act called the reminders. Be sure not to miss these two back to back shows in the madison area, its sure to be a great night with some other great bands!

The following night (May 28th) we will be back home at the Kruse In for a special show with our friends from Rhinelander, 4th Floor, who were also nominated for a WAMI this year in the Hard Rock Category. This is one you wont want to miss….so mark your calendar!

Enjoy the nice weather, hopefully it is here to stay….go out and see some live music and we will see you soon!
