AUGUST 29TH – BLACK LIGHT PARTY AT THE COOPERAGE FEATURING – NEWVICES – YAM HAUS – FEAR JOY – BESTFRIENDS
Their name might be newvices (that’s one word, lowercase n), but their sound is purely virtuous. newvices creates a lingering sound that gets listeners grooving, thinking, and feeling; with the ultimate goal of bringing solace to a hectic world.
As both individual artists and a collective, a shared carpe diem philosophy encourages ownership of the project, even as their tone changes from whimsical to haunting. Constantly refining and redefining their music, Oh Hush! produced their sophomore EP, “The Truth of Self.” Together, collected thoughts and feelings set the structure of each tune, all in the name of balance. Such collaboration resulted in their self-titled debut EP, being written in just a week.
Coming from a place of peace, newvices hopes fans find that solace, too. They’ve built a loyal following in Milwaukee’s rapidly evolving music scene. Calling Brew City home brings access to multi-talented artists, multinational venues, and DIY and Sofar scenes, laying the foundation for quick success. Yet performances at venues, both large and small, while supporting other local artists show a unique consciousness to their art and goals. Notable gigs include Summerfest, Sofar Sounds, and countless sold-out shows at theaters, bars, and concert halls.
Yam Haus, a Minneapolis-based synth-pop/rock band, rocked their way into First Ave in May as a last-minute fill-in opening act for Bishop Briggs in front of a sold out crowd.
As a precursor to their debut album, “Stargazer”, Yam has released their instant hit single “West Coast”, which landed a spot in Spotify’s “Poptronix” playlist. With the release of “Stargazer” Yam Haus earned over 600,000 streams and 100,000 listeners on Spotify celebrating with a sold out album release show at Amsterdam Bar & Hall.
With a message of positivity and unity, the quartet effortlessly connects with the crowd with their dance worthy pop grooves. The group is encouraging the crowd to let loose, reminding them that a Yam Haus show is a judgement free zone.
FEAR JOY IS Milwaukee-based electrons traveling through space and wires to pulsate the air around your ears in the smoothest fashion.
