This week on The Disclaimer, Ryan Schleicher, Matt Wild and I are joined by Tarik Moody, the architect of the latest Alverno Presents production, Unlooped Vs. Marvin Gaye. Moody gives some background on his Unlooped electronic music series and explains why he opted to theme this production around Gaye's most contentious album, Here My Dear. We also discuss Gaye's personal demons and feminist responses to the singer's bitter, mostly one-sided account of his divorce. Then we turn the discussion, once again, to Milwaukee's SXSW efforts and the unusual amount of grumbling about MilwaukeeHome's efforts to crowdfund a stage at the Austin music festival, while Tarik shares some advice to bands making the trip this year.
