For the last couple of months, each final Friday of the month, Milwaukee’s Unlooped Live (sponsored by PBR, 91.7 FM WMSE and 88Nine Radio Milwaukee) has presented local musicians, side-by-side, whom normally might not share a stage or even think of collaborating. We got the chance to catch electro-pop Made of Oak’s Nick Sanborn and Rory Sazama (guest Rhodes player) pair up with singer-songwriter Jeanna Salzer on vocals earlier in the summer to create a cool, Portishead-type of vibe. Brainfeeder’s Lorn also manned the turntables.
Tonight, Unlooped Live pairs up the hip hop-minded lunaversol9 (of Def Harmonic) with Buffalo, He Can Jog and electronic experimentalist the Demix. Lunaversol9 is throwing a celebration for her forthcoming solo EP A Novel Slur into the mix — her EP will be released on August 31st on Listening Party Records, the local label brought to you by Decibully which has featured releases from both Decibully and Minneapolis’ electro-pop duo, Lookbook.
Unlooped is hosted by WMSE’s BTS.WRKNG and 88Nine’s Tarik Moody. DJ sets will be provided by BTS.WRKNG, Moody and 88Nine’s Adam Carr. bSide is located at 235 S. 2nd and will kick off at 9 p.m.
