Even though there was a small crowd Friday night, Apollo Affair and Mike Maimone from the Mutts were a great hit. You may have even seen the News Director Ashley singing with Mike to some good old Sinatra. Also if you tuned in to The Edge you may have even heard Apollo Affair on air! Saturday night was also a great hit with a local favorite, Atlas On Strike. They brought in a full crowd and easily could be heard down the block. If you didn’t get a chance to come out, never fear we have some great events coming your way!
Thank you to all of our sponsors, Coyote Grille for hosting us, all of our staff and students, and the public for making this event possible!
While many of you have already heard the latest Alabama Shakes album, Sound & Color, it is a new add to The Edge. The album scored an 80 on Meta Critics public voting chart! The lead single on the album, “Don’t Wanna Fight” is catchy and will get you in the groove. The album is not electronic but has a surprising transcending feel to it. Their use of instruments and vocals gives it a stronger feel than their debut. Their use of surprising elements keeps the listener on their toes to see what they will add in next. Yet they still hold the vide of 90s Southern Rock throughout the album. Take a listen and see for your self.
The closest their tour will be is Indianapolis, IN with Father John Misty on May 30th! (What a great way to start summer!!)
So here’s what you missed (or have seen) this week so far in Fund Drive. On Tuesday night Brothers Quinn played opening night and was a great crowd pleaser. Coyote was full and everyone had a great time.
Wednesday night, Big Human played. They have only been a band for a couple of weeks but they rocked out to a slow crowd but it was still a bunch of fun!
Last night, was a double header with JT and Phil followed by Heavy Leaves. The place was full and people were digging the great harmonica and fiddle playing.
If this sounds like a great time and you haven’t had a chance to come out to Coyote for Fund Drive, there are 2 nights left! Tonight at 10pm Apollo Affair for Kenosha will be playing followed by Mike Maimone from the Mutts will be playing at midnight. Tomorrow night will be Atlas on Strike! So come on down and support 91.7 The Edge WSUW!
