Last year, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee introduced its MKE Unplugged series, shedding light on a string of local musicians in an unplugged, stripped down setting: guests such as Trapper Schoepp and the Shades, Lisa Gatewood, The Midwestern Charm and the Sugar Stems took the stage at UWM’s Helene Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts from September to May for a unique viewpoint on their music. To add to the experience, WMSE broadcast those sets live on the airwaves — even if you were far away, you could feel like you were right there at the Zelazo.
To herald this season’s lineup, Paul Cebar and his Tomorrow Sound will perform a live, acoustic set tonight (with opener Mike Fredrickson), starting at 7:30pm, which will be broadcast live on WMSE. You have two choices — either experience Paul Cebar and the Tomorrow Sound live at the Zelazo Center tonight (2419 E. Kenwood Boulevard) or simply tune your radio dial into WMSE in Milwaukee at 91.7 FM or stream live or in the archives at WMSE.org. Whichever you choose, you can bet you’re in for a treat, for Cebar’s been in the musical kitchen recently, cooking up some new tunes, and anyone who has seen Cebar knows that his best live shows are a combination of those new surprises and old favorites.
