A slow week in live music brings two post-rock groups to Brew City

Music Notes Show of the Week: Sleepcomesdown

Thursday, January 3:
Music Under Glass Presents Celebrating the U2 Experience with U2 Zoo at Mitchell Park Conservatory (The Domes), 6:30 p.m. $5/$6.50
No matter the lofty goals you’ve set for yourself this year, you probably will never be able to see the actual U2 play in an actual jungle. Luckily for you, the Mitchell Park Conservatory offers an exciting alternative to that dream scenario with its latest installments of Music Under Glass. Wednesday’s show features one of the world’s premiere U2 tribute acts in U2Zoo, rocking out to all the old favorites amidst 360 degrees of glass and floral wonder. The entrance fee of $5/$6.50 is a steal. (524 S. Layton Blvd., County.Milwaukee.Gov)

Friday, January 4: Sleepcomesdown with Paper Wasp, Brute Heart and Falcon Arrow at Riverwest Public House, 9 p.m. $5
Friday’s bill is a patchwork of some of the Midwest’s edgiest “post-something” acts, capped off with a performance by Milwaukee’s own sample-happy post-punks Sleepcomesdown. Brute Heart and Falcon Arrow will represent Minneapolis’ experimental faction, with Madison’s Paper Wasp rounding out the Dairy State’s portion of the bill. (815 E.

Saturday, January 5: Dawn of Man with Bridges of Konigsberg and Tyler Etters at Frank’s Power Plant, 10 p.m.
Apparently there is too much post-rock happening this week to be contained by one show. Wisconsin’s other other post-rock outfit, Kenosha’s Dawn Of Man, brings its down-tempo space rock instrumentals to Frank’s, where it’ll be joined by Tyler Etters and Chicago’s Bridges of Konigsberg.
