Happy Birthday WMSE Day One: Calling Me Lightning + Holy Sh*t! at Club Garibaldi’s

Monday, March 14:
Club Garibaldi’s [2501 S. Superior]
Call Me Lightning w/ Holy Sh*t!
9pm, 21+, FREE

Because you like your music loud, wound like a spring and your concerts a wee bit sweaty, you’ve probably seen Milwaukee’s Call Me Lightning nearly every show they’ve played in their hometown. So have we. That’s why we’re letting the three-piece punk rock instigators kick off our birthday celebration week tonight at Club Garibaldi’s [2501 Superior] alongside hardcore short-setters, Holy Sh*t!. Why should you consider a Monday evening with CML? Local press, Seizure Chicken has called their latest release [When I am Gone, My Blood Will Be Free / Dusty Medical Records]a cleverly strong post-punk album, with its lingering sense of anarchy, rebellion or something in-between, that invokes the listener to clutch to each verse [guitarist Nathan] Lilley spits as an inspiring pre-battle speech” and The Onion’s A.V. Milwaukee says the album is, “a thoroughly reckless ride”, giving props to the band’s more recent melodic forays into their namesake’s musical territory — after all, a band named after a song by The Who only has so much time before they cave into their true inspiration…
