Lest We Forget: Our Night to Remember
May. 21, 2013
One remarkable thing about last May’s “Lest We Forget” concert at Turner Hall was the breadth of talent assembled under the banner of reuniting Milwaukee’s early-’80s new music scene. The memorial CD from that night opens with a powerful solo performance by Liv Mueller and proceeds through clever techno-pop from Xposed 4heads, the rockabilly of the Rock-a-Dials, the edgier experimentalism of Tense Experts, Die Kreuzen’s proto-grunge, hardcore punk from Sacred Order and some good old rock ’n’ roll form the Dominoes and Dummy Club—just to name a few of the acts. “Lest We Forget” served as a reminder that Milwaukee had a stronger music scene back then than our larger neighbor to the south, Chicago.
There will be a one-year anniversary “Lest We Forget” show with Sacred Order, 3 on Fire, the Rock-a-Dials and Liv Mueller on Friday, May 24 at 7:30 p.m., at the Miramar Theatre.
