Tonight on Local/Live: Amateur Astronaut

Amateur Astronaut

Tune in this Tuesday at 8 p.m. for Local/Live, this week’s guest is Amateur Astronaut. After five years of rest the remaining members of the Milwaukee space-rock outfit, Former Legitimate Scientist, turned their eyes to the sky.   Jim (guitar/ vocals) and Craig (drums) joined with Kevin (bass) and Jake (keyboards) to form the Amateur Astronaut in 2007, a project rooted in guitar-driven rock similar to Hum, Dinosaur Jr., Chavez, Shiner and Failure.  The Amateur Astronaut creates rock songs inspired by space and science built around waves of distortion and loud/ soft dynamics. For a preview, check out Amateur Astronaut this Tuesday at 8 on WMSE’s Local/Live. Then, catch the band live at The Up & Under on August 28th.
