R. Mutt at Linneman's with Stereoactive

I remember the day I moved out of Riverwest. I had lived in two different flats on Weil Street over the course of about 6 years. The first I shared with Ron and John Gentile.    It was on the corner of Clarke, across from St. Cashmir (where we enjoyed the annual Blessing of the Bock in the church basement before it moved to the war memorial) and the second was a one bedroom above Big Sky bassist, Carl Schulz, located at Hadley, kitty corner from the old Stork Club.

The morning I drove the U-Hall home for the move I noticed a group of people gathering at the long empty building across from Sunset foods. Returning from taking my first load I saw what appeared to be a bar sign. By the time the day was over and I was set to return the rental the sign was up and the team was gathered around looking up at it. Linneman's Riverwest Inn.

Just my luck. The day I move out a bar set to host live music opens on my block.

I have returned to Riverwest many times and visited Jim Linneman's fine Inn to see more than a few bands and always had a great time and enjoyed the great sound in that room. It has taken some time, but now I get to return with R. Mutt and play this room. Really looking forward to our first Milwaukee Bar show since the release of Leash on Life.

We are all excited to be joined for this show by Stereoactive, a cool three piece that we first hooked up with at last summer's Jigglesfest at Bradford Beach.    The doors should be at 8:00 with music starting at 9:00.   Come on out and tip a few with us.
