WHAT MADE MILWAUKEE FAMOUS has returned with their third full-length album (due out January 2013) that picks up right where they left off, uniting powerful, anthemic hooks with lush instrumentation. WMMF has enlisted a who's who of the Austin music scene with guest spots by Kelly Doyle (Robert Ellis) on lead guitar, Evan Jacobs (Tacks the Boy Disaster, Polyphonic Spree) on keys, and Cully Symington (Okkervil River, Cursive, The Afghan Whigs) on drums to round out a fresh new sound for the band. Their new album tentatively titled, You Can't Fall Off The Floor, was recorded at Good Danny’s studios in Austin, TX and co-produced by Danny Reisch (WHITE DENIM, SHEARWATER). Guest musicians KATHLEEN EDWARDS and MATTHEW VASQUEZ (DELTA SPIRIT) lend their talents, along with Austin staples DANA FALCONBERRY, WARREN HOOD, MIKE HARMEIER (MIKE & THE MOONPIES), GARY NEWCOMB (LIL' CAP'N TRAVIS), AARON SINCLAIR (FRANK SMITH, THE LOT SIX, and MIKE BOOHER (ZYKOS). With the impending release of WMMF’s newest installment, they are poised to satiate their passionate devotees with exciting, new material and their rivetingly energetic, live shows. Chicago-based local folk indie rock outfit CANOE CANOE returns to the Bottle tonight and we’re excited to hear the way the tracks from their Blacksheep EP and THE BROWN BOTTLE FLU kick things off with a raw, intense set of noisy rock'n'rol.
