A soon-to-be out-of-business shoe factory is saved by a fortuitous encounter with a team of drag queens, needing footwear that can meet the needs of their profession.
Incoming freshmen and fellow undergraduates of UW-Madison will have the opportunity to explore and appreciate some of the art and talent that Madison has to offer at Night at the Overture on Sept. 2.
The Overture Center for the Arts was sold-out Friday for The MadHatter’s fall concert. This a cappella group is most well-known for their classy red blazers, whimsy on stage and inconceivable solos. I attended their spring show last semester and was completely blown away by how perfected and professional this group sounded. Their performance this past weekend did not disappoint. I’ve met a majority of these guys before and after getting to know their personalities I was eager to see what type of show they had crafted for us this evening.
UW-Madison’s premier a cappella group, The MadHatters, will make their big return to the Capitol Theater at the Overture Center for their fall show Nov. 13. Quite an impressive reputation precedes these men. They performed at the White House in 2011 and 2012, Lambeau Field in 2014 and the PGA Championship this past summer. They have recorded six studio albums and toured across the United States and Mexico. The Hatters sold out the Overture Center when it reopened back in 2004, and have done so numerous times. They haven’t performed in the Capitol Theater since Spring 2014.
Freakfest is one of the most anticipated and well-known weekends in Madison.
“Legally Blonde: The Musical” is taking center stage in Shannon Hall at the Memorial Union this weekend. I had the opportunity to see an early dress rehearsal performance and I was thoroughly impressed.
Back in August 2014 I attended one of UW-Madison’s many welcome week events, The Understudies Improv show. I happened to sit next to three random guys whom, after asking me if I knew how to sing, identified themselves as Mike Fuller, Vinnie Biskupic and David Grube, all singers in Fundamentally Sound. As a week-old freshman I was completely unaware of the tremendous support, love and following this group experiences. But over the course of this past year that has completely changed and I had no idea how much this a cappella group would be a part of my freshman year.
On Wednesday, March 4, MisterWives stopped at the High Noon Saloon in Madison, on their Our Own House tour, with openers Handsome Ghost and BØRNS. I had never been to this concert venue before, but I immediately became accustomed to it and liked the intimacy and closeness that came across even though it was a fairly large stage.
This Wednesday, MisterWives will perform at the High Noon Saloon with openers BØRNS and Handsome Ghost. Most well known for their hit “Reflections,” MisterWives has sold out the upcoming show in Madison. Last Friday I had the pleasure to chat with the talented Garrett Borns, better known as BØRNS. The interview was really enlightening and he came across as a very genuine musician.
