ABOG Podcast is pleased to present MGC Music; a local music showcase featuring some of the best bands in the Milwaukee area. This gig will be at Midwest Gaming Classic and will provide entertainment in the vendor hall.
Music will start at 11:30AM and will feature seven bands including my own (Waxing Gibbous). Here is a full run down of all the acts performing at MGC Music. The specific set times will be announced prior to MGC and included in their interactive guide.
Formed in the super-heated heart of a secret volcano fortress. Christoph tickles the guitar strings and manipulates the secret inner workings of a possessed Nintendo Gameboy from 1989. Sam thrashes at the drum set with dangerous rhythm and together they create supernatural, death-defying, 8bit punk for you and only you.
The Atomic Spins
Forged at the hands of the Judge of Heaven and formed on the anvil of Clionadh, an aural creature emerges, packed with the passion of the Mississippi Delta and the power of Rock N Roll. Explosive guitars, valiant bass grooves and eclectic percussive beats conspire to create… The Atomic Spins.
Beaker is a 3-piece rock and roll group devoted to the high energy bar punk tradition of Bad Religion, Devo, The Ramones, and the Dead Kennedys. This righteous band cooks up a fast-paced, danceable music gumbo sure to get your sonic taste buds tingling.
Evacuate the Earth
Chosen by mysterious entities as emissaries with a dire message for a world on the brink, Evacuate the Earth formed in 2011 to provide a wordless plea to save humanity. Saxaphones and thereims cry above thundering rhythms, gentle pleas and violent warnings. Only one way out. Evacuate the Earth. Destruction is imminent.
Mechanical Life Vein
Classic video game music performed in real time. Video game jazz.
Milwaukee outfit Sugar Stems mix bubblegum and power pop in their indie rock stylings. Influenced by the Go-Go’s, Elastica, and the Pretenders, as well as ‘60s girl groups.
Percolated in coffee houses by the rhythm of djembe hand drums, Waxing Gibbous followed the moonlight out of a drum circle and into amplifiers. Acoustic guitar plucked and pounded backboned by a drum kit with latin flair pulled from the souls that have weathered this plane.
A few of the bands appearing at MGC Music were played on ABOG Podcast previously. Listen to the show to hear great music from bands such as these and for music and gaming conversation.
