The week in local music: June 26, 2007

No, the rest of the city does not cease operations during the 11-day reign of Summerfest. As I'm sure you're aware, the "world's largest music festival" commences this Thursday, June 28, but there are plenty of local bands that aren't on the Big Gig bill that could sure use your support this weekend.

Quinn Scharber and Clementine are playing a free show at the Jackalope Lounj this Saturday, June 30. What's better than free stuff?

Bear Proof Suit stopped in at WMSE a few weeks ago to play a Local Live show and we've got a track from that set for your listening pleasure. Adding to the options of Saturday night, Bear Proof Suit is teaming up with Jail, the Assh*le Two and China Pig for a Stonefly show.

A couple years ago we wrote an article about Deadman's Shoes' new album, "Another Fool." If you've been enjoying that record, here's your chance to see the band live at Circle A. They are playing the Live at Eight set this Saturday during Circle A's binge party weekend.

Last, but never least, Milwaukee's beloved Mistreaters are playing a Cactus Club show on Friday, June 29 with Chicago's White Savage, Megas and Aluminum Knoteye. And, for the first time ever, Brent and I present to you, the Two for Tuesday: Mistreaters. Enjoy.
