+ Musical Guests: HEAVY HAND and SCRIMSHAW

Heavy Hand is a band from Milwaukee comprised of Anthony Weber, Isa Carini, and Christopher Roberts.

“Scrimshaw features members of Milwaukee’s Crappy Dracula and The Trusty Knife, but the group’s deeply weird (and giddily infectious) spirit is all its own. Songs like “Donkey Venom” and “Hip To Hip Combat” may soundlike Ween-like 4-track experiments on record, though they translate to the stuff of dance-party fever-dreams live.”- THE ONION AV CLUB
