Vic and Gab This Week
The sister duo joins friends at the Cactus Club. Plus: lots more shows to cure your Summerfest hangover.

Monday, July 8: Myles Coyne with Old Earth, and Martha Cannon at Boone & Crockett, 7 p.m. (FREE)
The chilling, genre-bending lo-fi masterpieces of Oak Creek’s Todd Umhoefer – better known as Old Earth – makes the prospect of staying out late to nurse $9 craft cocktails on a Monday night worthwhile. The folk rock experimentalist is bookended by a pair of great area songwriters, including Myles Coyne, who gave his Rusty Nickel Band the night off in favor of a solo set. (2151 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., booneandcrockettmke.com)

Tuesday, July 9: Rio Turbo with The Delphines and Sat. Nite Duets at Linneman’s Riverwest Inn, 9 p.m. ($5)
Milwaukee party-pop purveyor Rio Turbo is quickly earning a reputation as one of the city’s most unique and most active artists by way of his bi-weekly show schedule and his growing collection of lo-fi carnal cassette jams. Fresh off the release of his latest, KISS FM, Rio Turbo, his “Turbette” dancers and DJ Nike Mane are bound to test of capacity and dress code of Linneman’s. The Delphines and Sat. Nite Duets open.

Wednesday, July 10: Prince Rama with Catacombz, and Moss Folk at Mad Planet, 9 p.m. ($9)
Local outfit Catacombz specializes in incomparable works that combine elements of classic rock, psychedelic and out-of-this-world atmospherics to forge something all its own. Spend your Wednesday with one of Milwaukee’s most underrated acts. What else would you be doing? It’s a Wednesday. (533 E. Center St, mad-planet.net)

Also: Candelaria with Sindoolaa at Stonefly Brewing Company, 9 p.m. – (735 E. Center St., stoneflybrewery.com)

And: Brother at River Rhythms, 6:30 p.m. (FREE) – (Pere Marquette Park)

Thursday, July 11: The Deadstring Brothers with Musikanto at Shank Hall, 8 p.m. ($10)
Detroit, Mich. doesn’t immediately come to mind when thinking of blues-tinged rock ’n’ roll, but Deadstring Brothers has been doling out hefty portions of Motor City-influenced alt-country for more than a decade now. While the outfit’s mastermind and bandleader Kurt Marschke has since relocated the act to better-equipped expanses of Nashville, Tenn. (shedding members in droves along the way), Deadstring Brothers is still very much alive, making its way through its native Midwest in support of new album Cannery Row. Musikanto opens. (1434 N. Farwell Ave., shankhall.com)

Also: Cherryball with The Newlybreds and Zach Steiner at Linneman’s Riverwest Inn, 9 p.m. ($5) – (1001 E. Locust St., linnemans.com)

And: The 57s with Northside Creep at Up & Under Pub, 9 p.m. – (1216 E. Brady St., theupandunderpub.com)

Friday, July 12: Vic And Gab with Fable & The World Flat and Mutts at Cactus Club, 10 p.m.
Milwaukee sister duo Victoriah and Hannah Gabriela Banuelos – better known as “Vic & Gab” – have won favor of local indie rock connoisseurs with their upbeat, danceable and harmony-laden ditties. On the cusp of their second release, the siblings are garnering well-deserved attention beyond city limits, including being streamed on Spin last month. Vic & Gab’s long-awaited and (likely) breakout LP, Love of Mine, will be formally released July 9 and will be available at the band’s Cactus Club release show Friday, which also features openers Fable & The World Flat and Mutts.

Saturday, July 13: Klassik with Electric Children, Dana Coppafeel, Speak Easy and Lili K at BBC, 9 p.m.

"Detroit, Mich. doesn’t immediately come to mind when thinking of blues-tinged rock ’n’ roll" Yes, and Nashville, TN doesn't immediately come to mind when thinking of country music.
