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.

91.7FM, WMSE…aka Frontier Radio…is doing a summer series that is sure to include all the best the city of Milwaukee has to offer.  This weekend they are featuring Def Harmonic (who is going to release a new album soon I’m told), The Figureheads, and Oneself.

The gig is hosted by the Mad Kids, begins at 9PM, and is at Mad Planet…one of Milwaukee finest venues.  This should be a good time.

Memorial Day weekend is always a busy time.  This year is no exception to that rule.  There is a whole host of events for people to pick from over the weekend.  The gem being Friday night’s Miltown Beat Down finals at the Wherehouse.  If you have heard yet, Freeway is going to be performing, and Jake One and Vitamin D are going to be in the house as guest judges.  The very talented Frankie Flowers will also be performing.

The true stars of the night; 40 Mil, Zeekzilla, DJ Peru, and Lex Luther…are going to provide the true thunder of the evening hoping that they leave every neck broken.

A lot of people have been waiting for this Saturday night because of Fresh Cut Collective’s release party, but it’s not the only thing worth going to in the city that night.

I’m definitely going to stop by the FCC party to get my copy of their new self-titled album, one that if you’ve been keeping up with the snippets they’ve been dropping here and there, is certain to be worth your hard earned cash.

Travel a little south to the Cactus Club and you have APRIME and The Hollowz performing a show w/ DJ Optimist.  APRIME is a ton of fun to watch and the new music that he’s preparing for his upcoming solo album is FANTASTIC.

Lastly, come back to the middle between Mad Planet and Cactus Club, and you have a party going down at Moct.  Mash-up DJs Elechroic will be keeping things funny for you while some Chi-Town artists made the trip North to rock the microphone.

So, as you can see…your Friday is set, and you have some great options for Saturday.  Whatever the case, have fun and be safe!
