{Recommended} FRZN Fest @ High Noon


Hi! It's nice to to meet you, FRZN Fest.



True Endeavors, the concert-booking machine of Madison, is hosting its inaugural FRZN Fest this weekend. You won't want to miss your chance to catch this impressive line-up of upcoming indie artists when they stop at High Noon this Friday & Saturday. The line-up seems to be dominated by our friends from the Northwoods -- S. Carey, Polica, and Peter Wolf Crier all have ties to the Bon Iver clan. This northern exposure of performers is supplemented with other rising artists -- some overlapping with our neighbor Chicago's Tomorow Never Knows music festival -- including Chairlift, Class Actress, and Dom.

Still not convinced? Here's what you have to look forward to if you join me this weekend for the introduction of FRZN Fest.

Day 1 - Friday, January 13th



Chairlift - An article about this duo was just posted on Pitchfork, just in time for you to get to know them. 

Dom

Class Actress - Might I suggest listening/dancing to "Keep You"?

 

Squarewave



Polica Album Art

Polica
- Fronted by female vocalist Channy Casselle, this Twin Cities group has been rampant on indie blogs lately like Brooklyn Vegan (click through to explore some tunes of theirs). Their debut album Give You The Ghost will be out February 14th.









Day 2 - Saturday, January 14th



S. Carey - Labelmate of Bon Iver on Jagjaguwar Records -- who seem excited about this music fest.

Peter Wolf Crier - Explore his sound below with "Settling It Off." If you dig it, you can grab the song for free on True Endeavors' website here

We still miss you Stevie Ray Vaughan
It's hard to believe it's been 24 years since we lost Stevie Ray Vaughan in that helicopter crash after a show at Alpine Valley. I've talked to lots of people who were at that concert, which also featured Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, and...

World's Worst iPod: Donny Osmond "Soldier of Love"
It's hard to believe that Donny Osmond scored his second biggest solo hit in 1989, but it's true! "Soldier of Love" went all the way to #2 on the charts. When the song was released, the record company was afraid no one would buy a new Donny...

Butch Vig--the actor?
Butch Vig and his pal from Garbage Duke Erikson, Freedy Johnson, and Jay Moran get together every once in a while as "The Know-it-all Boyfriends." Well they're getting the band back together, and this time they're doing it for a good cause--to...

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the song here...

The next Jonny Lang? Quinn Sullivan is the real deal
I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The G-rating probably...
