Event Details
Wheeler Brothers have garnered much critical success following the release of their debut album "Portraits". They subsequently won "Best New Band" in the Austin music awards and toured with the Avett Brothers.

What Made Milwaukee Famous has returned with their third full-length album (out January 2013) that picks up right where they left off, uniting powerful, anthemic hooks with lush instrumentation. WMMF has enlisted a who's who of the Austin music scene with guest spots by Kelly Doyle (Robert Ellis) on lead guitar, Evan Jacobs (Tacks the Boy Disaster, Polyphonic Spree) on keys, and Cully Symington (Okkervil River, Cursive, The Afghan Whigs) on drums to round out a fresh new sound for the band. Their new album" You Can't Fall Off The Floor" was recorded at Good Danny’s studios in Austin, TX and co-produced by Danny Reisch (White Denim, Shearwater). Guest musicians Kathleen Edwards and Matthew Vasquez (Delta Spirit) lend their talents, along with Austin staples Dana Falconberry, Warren Hood, Mike Harmeier (Mike and the Moonpies), Gary Newcomb (Lil' Cap'n Travis), Aaron Sinclair (Frank Smith, The Lot Six), and Mike Booher (Zykos).
