Milwaukee Record's annual Local Coverage concerts have only been around for a few years, but they're already one of the Milwaukee music scene's best traditions—a chance to see some of the city's best acts pay tribute to each other with inspired, often surprising one-off sets.

Lorde Fredd33 (playing Midwest Death Rattle)
Buffalo Gospel (playing Midnight Reruns)
Marielle Allschwang (playing Lorde Fredd33)

Abby Jeanne (playing Devil Met Contention)
Midnight Reruns (playing Marielle Allschwang)
The Pukes (playing Buffalo Gospel)
Vincent VanGreat (playing Abby Jeanne)
Devil Met Contention (playing Vincent VanGreat)
