Sleepy Gaucho + Diet Lite + Dandy L. Freling

November 5, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Sleepy Gaucho+Diet Lite+Dandy L Freling Live at The Cooperage

Sleepy Gaucho – follows in the great American artistic tradition that is the rambler’s drawl. His Panamerican influenced folk music offers up a cocktail of wry existentialism and mellow introspection that floats somewhat aimlessly in a realm of its own. Born in Wisconsin while also growing up some time in Argentina, the young multi-instrumentalist’s music can at times be melancholic, at others ethereal, but always agreeable.

“His music is of the psych-folk strand that, while plausibly described as hazy and sunny, nonetheless has an underlying and alluring sense of mystery to it” – Line of Best Fit

“The lyrics are hazy and ambiguous, resulting in a dreamlike and slightly melancholic feel to the album that leaves the precise interpretation of meaning firmly in the hands of the listener” – Americana UK

“One of the most beautiful songwriters in our city” – Radio Milwaukee


DIET LITE – A powerful trio showcasing catchy riffs, creative songwriting, and a brand of energy that could be canned and sold, Diet Lite is gritty, feel-good rock ‘n’ roll at its finest.

Hailing from Milwaukee, WI, Diet Lite started in 2017 as a collection of various recording projects between drummer Evan Marsalli and guitarist Kelson Kuzdas. The band quickly brought guitarist Max Niemann into the fold, and they’ve been hammering out tunes across the Midwest ever since.

The band’s eclectic style has been described as where “garage rock meets power pop,” showcasing sweet hooks, pungent absurdity, and the spirit of drunken collaboration. The group takes pride in active bass lines, melodically forward verses, and familiar yet fresh material.


DANDY L FRELING – Combining a touch of the high and lonesome hollers of the Appalachian hill people with the low-down, dusty grooves of the cosmic cowboys, Dandy has created a unique sonic banquet sure to satisfy the hunger of any weary passerby. So don’t be afraid to stop awhile. And fill up your plate, there’s plenty to go around
