Guided By Voices will Headline WMSE’s Backyard BBQ at Humboldt Park on August 24th!

WMSE 91.7FM, Milwaukee’s only free-form, community-supported radio station, is thrilled to announce that legendary indie rock band Guided by Voices will headline the 14th Annual Backyard BBQ concert, presented by Lakefront Brewery and Gruber Law Offices, LLC., on Saturday, August 24th at Humboldt Park in Bay View. The band has had a prolific output, releasing 35+ full-length albums along with many other releases, and has garnered a dedicated cult following. Their songs are known for their frequent brevity and for ending abruptly or intertwining with homemade sound effects.

The amazing day will start with a performance by surf rockers The Exotics, followed by local punk outfit Jinksie, then indie rock band NEWSKI will perform, followed by blues star Buffalo Nichols, and lastly GBV headlines!

Since 2010, WMSE has hosted the Backyard BBQ, a free music festival that serves as a thank-you to listeners, supporters, and the community. The event provides a full day of summer fun for the whole family with live music, food trucks, activities, and cold local craft beer.

Mark your calendars for this not-to-be-missed free concert!

Thanks to Lakefront Brewery, Gruber Law Offices, LLC., Direct Supply, Ticket King, Fuel Cafe, Wisconsin Bike Fed, MSOE, Milwaukee County Parks, and South Shore Cyclery for sponsoring this event.
