Starting this week, Wherehouse hosts Milwaukee Meltdown

User Rating:  / 1

MTV's hit dance competition, "America's Best Dance Crew (ABDC)," has become a phenomenon for wannabe dancers in much the same way "American Idol" has lifted the hopes of vocalists around the country.

Capitalizing on ABDC's popularity, local nightclub "Wherehouse" (818 S. Water St.) will host "Milwaukee Meltdown: Dance Crew Competition," a four-week contest showcasing some of the Midwest's best dance teams.

Starting this week, competitions will be held each Thursday night at the club until a winning team is announced at the July 28 finale.

The final round of competition will feature performances by Enigma Dance Kru from Season One of ABDC and Milwaukee native and world traveler, rapper Juiceboxxx.

"Milwaukee Meltdown" begins at 10 p.m. and is hosted by local break dancing specialist "Mijo" of Motion Disorderz Dance Crew - the winner of the 2010 BC1 Red Bull Cypher One Break Dancing Championship. Cover is $7.

  • Although music festivals have risen to a level of ubiquity, Riot Fest has retained a special place in my heart.  With summer on the verge of giving way to fall, Riot Fest is a unique punctuation to another lively festival season.    Much of my fascination regarding Riot Fest traces back to the festival's humble beginnings, which could easily be a movie script. It started with one avid punk-rock fan, Mike Petryshyn. While still in school and working a 9 to 5, Petryshyn decided to invite all of his favorite bands to play together - and somehow it worked! The festival has grown enormously since that time, but its consistently unorthodox line-ups demonstrate the same unabashed music-loving excitement that got the ball rolling in the first place. For it’s 10th anniversary, Riot Fest has a particularly exciting line-up. Here are some of the acts you won’t want to miss this weekend! Friday Pussy Riot (Panel Moderated by Henry Rollins) Riot Fest really outdid itself this year by booking Russia’s most outspoken feminist punk-rock band, Pussy Riot, for this year’s Riot Fest Speaks panel. In addition to having the word ‘Riot’ in their band name, Pussy Riot also couldn't be more appropriate because it’s a band that embodies the DIY, anti-establishment ethics of punk-rock that Riot Fest seeks to recognize. The band rose to international fame, both among punk rockers and political pundits, when members were arrested for protesting the oppressive policies of Vladimir Putin.  This Friday, Pussy Riot members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alekhina will speak out about sociopolitical movements, music, and art. Other best speakers include Bad Religion's Greg Graffin, Rise Against's Tim McIlrath, feminist writer Marcelle Karp, and Riot Fest’s founder, Mike Petryshyn. Henry Rollins will be the panel moderator. Time: 5:45 PM- 7 PM Stage: Riot Fest Speaks    Gogol Bordello Gogol Bordello, a self-described “gypsy-punk band,” hosts a multi-ethnic lineup and prides itself on bringing Eastern European music to the United States. I was first introduced to this band when they came to the Pabst Theater last year, giving what is easily one of the most memorable concerts of my life. I can still feel the floor shaking as musician Elizabeth Sun climbed atop stage monitors. If you feel like dancing this weekend, this is one show you will not want to miss. Time: 7 PM- 7:45 PM Stage: Riot Stage   Saturday   Wavves If you are looking for a band that’s been a little more under the radar than some of this year’s big acts, then I would have to suggest Wavves. This punk rock, lo-fi band formed in 2008 out of San Diego, California and has steadily gained a following since. Lead vocalist and lyricist Nathan Williams is unafraid to speak out about life’s banalities and best of all, he does so in a dead-pan manor that manages to be more comforting than depressing. Time: 12:20 PM- 12:50 PM Stage: Roots Stage    Die Antwoord  Die Antwoord is a South African rap-rave duo with an aesthetic flair inspired by South Africa’s zef subculture. If that doesn’t sound intriguing enough, check out one of their numerous music videos and I guarantee you’ll be hooked. Die Antwoord members Ninja and Yolandi Vi$$er are undoubtedly blazing their own trail in the music world, combining music and visual arts to promote their wildly unique vision. I don’t know what will happen, but I can at least predict that their performance will take you a few days to fully process. (caution: video uses strong language) Time: 3:45 PM- 4:30 PM Stage: Riot Stage  Wu- Tang Clan The Wu-Tang Clan may seem like an unlikely act for a predominantly punk-rock festival, but it makes more sense than you’d think. At it’s original conception, the rap collective set out to wreak havoc on the record industry in a DIY fashion. They took the hip-hop community by storm by firing out many albums met with commercial success and critical acclaim. Today, the Wu-Tang Clan is widely respected for the innovations brought to hip-hop and stands as one of the most influential rap outfits in history. This is undoubtedly a show you won’t want to miss. ​ Time: 6 PM- 7PM Stage: Roots Stage   Sunday Kurt Vile & the Violators Kurt Vile has made a name for himself over the years as a solo artist and as a member of the indie-rock band War On Drugs. Now, you have the opportunity to see him preform with backing band, the Violators! Vile, who cites influences like Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen, produces a sound that harkens back to an older era of music, one which is unhurried and strongly introspective. This show should be a calm spot in an otherwise riotous day.   Time: 1:45 PM - 2:15 PM Stage: Riot Stage    Modern Baseball Modern Baseball is a relatively new band to watch out for. The band formed in 2012, when two high school friends met their other halves at a University party. Since then, the four piece band has released two albums- all before turning twenty-two! The bands second album, You’re Gonna Miss It All, has been particularly well received. The album achieved a Pitchfork rating of 7.2. Their music is energetic, angst-y, and riddled with pop-culture references. It’s the perfect coming of age punk-pop soundtrack.   Time: 6 PM- 6:30 PM Stage: Revolt Stage  

  • This past Monday, 88Nine was lucky enough to have Oxford's Glass Animals perform a Studio:Milwaukee session before their show later that night at Turner Hall Ballroom. Glass Animals recently released their debut full length album entitled Zaba and it is full of infectious R&B infused tunes.  During the session, we talked to Glass Animals about their meeting the super producer Paul Eptworth (Adele, Florence + The Machine, LCD Soundsystem), recording with pineapple and their love of hip hop and R&B.   Listen to session above and check out the photos shot by 88Nine's Kallao below.  Tracks performed: 1.

  • This Thursday at 5:30pm, The Sleepwalkers will be our guest on 414 Music Live. The Sleepwalkers have created their own unique blend of power pop and alt-country since 2009 and you can hear it on the latest album Lost My Mind In Stereo.   Building on the framework of their 2010 release The Reckless Kind, the band hits full force with a lot of drums, a lot of guitars, and a lot of attitude on Lost My Mind In Stereo.  A variety of keyboards augment the arrangements and help accentuate each hook, leaving you with a roadmap back to such influences as The Band, Sam Cooke and The Replacements. The Sleepwalkers have toured all over the country and have played shows with artists such as White Rabbits, Ha Ha Tonka, The Henry Clay People, Dan Vapid & The Cheats, Paul Collins Beat, Prima Donna, The Melismatics, The Figgs, Miles Nielsen and more. Back in April, the band recorded a session for Daytrotter, which you can check out here.  Watch their video for the song "Come Around" from Lost My Mind In Stereo.
