Tonight on Local/Live: The Thriftones

The Thriftones have been mixing genres and styles since their formation in  the summer of 2011.  The band can be loud and aggressive at one moment and playing a sweet and composed ballad in the next.  With a solid repertoire and an energetic live show — and they’ve been playing a lot of them — the Thriftones are quickly gaining the respect of music lovers in Milwaukee. The A.V. Club says of lead singer/guitarist Matthew Davies, “Davies has a real talent in crafting songs about darker ideas and images within our country, while his band backs these concepts up with a shadowy rockabilly beat. “Tune in this Tuesday at 8 p.m. to WMSE’s Local/Live to hear one of Milwaukee’s most exciting new bands. to stream live or in the archives, or tune on in at 91.7 FM on your radio dial.
