From time to time I like to take a blog post to discuss some of the events happening in Milwaukee over the course of a week/weekend, that pertains to Hip-Hop, so that you can maybe become aware of something that you didn’t know about previously…and then maybe even go to it.
This Wednesday, Grassroots Wednesdays are continuing at the Mirmar Theater with the featured guest being Dukalion this week. It is an open mic type of joint and is all ages, so young guys and gals that can’t do the club/bar scene yet, here’s an opportunity for you to start cutting those teeth on the microphone. It starts at 8PM. Here is the FACEBOOK EVENT page for it.
This Thursday, The NightKrawlers, XL Big, AUTOMatic, MC Starr, and Tefman, will be performing at the fantastic venue known as Mad Planet. The one starts at 10PM and the cover charge is only $5 for a night filled with Hip-Hop. This wouldn’t be a bad way to spend your thirsty Thursday. Here is the FACEBOOK EVENT page for it.
This Friday, we have our Miltown Beatdown champion Lex Luthor attempting to lay the smack down on producers from all over the Midwest in Minneapolis at 1st Avenue. The event starts at 8PM, carries only a $5 cover charge, and the legendary DJ Premier is the special guest of the night! As far as beat battles go, Big Tune is a good one to make the trip up to MPLS to check out. Here is the FACEBOOK EVENT page for it. If you can’t make it, sent the kid your best on Twitter: @lexluthormke.
This Saturday, Cigarette Break, the band that you have seen back numerous UMG events more recently, will be releasing some new T-Shirts at Chic Lounge, with the joint starting at 8PM. The shirts were designed by clothing label FLHIGH BOY, and of course, Cigarette Break will be performing. This is a free event and you can find out more information about it on the FACEBOOK EVENT page for it.
Well, there you have it…the rest of your week is planned out.
