Something To Do blows your musical brains out with their ultra-catchy sometimes twisted, but always rocking music and live show full of high-energy, horn-driven rock. The band’s most-recent summer release, Music For Fine Dining is a shining example of this energy at its utmost and although the band formed in 2002 during ska’s “hey-day” of sorts, they lay the slightly-of-yore genre down so expertly (and awesomely), that it’s hard to deny the enthusiasm. Bassist/vocalist Nate Tredinnick told Tap Milwaukee in a recent interview, “Me and Kenny [Maciejewski] went to college together at UW-Whitewater and played in another band. We’ve kind of gone off and on for a bit, but we’ve been pretty full on for the last year and a half to two years…we liked ska music, but not a lot of ska bands. A lot of times ska gets ghettoized as a music, and we wanted to make it cool. The idea is to be in a ska band, but not a ska band that has ridiculous T-shirts of dancing hot dogs.” Tune into WMSE tonight at 8 p.m. for Local/Live with Something To Do — 91.7 FM on your radio dial, or stream live or in the archives over at WMSE.org.
