Tonight On Local/Live: Drugs Dragons

Drugs Dragons

Milwaukee’s Drugs Dragons take the best (and dirtiest) of old school punk and rock and work it into a brain-seething and intoxicant-inspired fury, soaking in and spitting out what they’ve gotten from the Stooges, The Fall, Butthole Surfers and even Joy Division. The four-piece fronted by Luke Chappelle, recently released a new EP [The Milorganight EP] on Milwaukee’s Dusty Medical Records, which is a good sonic reference to their intensely disheveled live shows. A.V. Club Milwaukee says of the EP that “frontman Luke Chappelle and company wallowed in the kind of theme-park horror and tongue-in-cheek doom and gloom made famous by Alice Cooper and The Cramps…Milorganight finds the band tightening screws and coming into its own.” Drugs Dragons plays WMSE’s Local/Live tonight at 8 p.m. CST. Tune in to hear live songs on the radio at 91.7 FM on your radio dial or stream, live at
