5:15 Get Back Wisconsin
7:00 Slow Pulp
8:30 Cycropia Aerial Dance
For Happy Hour at Orton ($3 beers from 5:00-7:00 pm) we bring you Get Back Wisconsin
, a Madison-based band dedicated to performing the entire Beatles core catalog. Dubbed by the Wisconsin State Journal as “The Beatles Purists,” the band marks each 50th anniversary of a Beatles album release by performing the entire album, note-for-note, accompanied by an all-star orchestra of guest musicians. Come together at 5:15 pm to enjoy this magical mystery tour.
Next up at 7:00 pm is Slow Pulp
. Though they now reside in Chicago, these Madison hometown heroes have been best buds since elementary school and are returning to the ’hood to play the headline slot on Friday night. Emily Massey leads this shoegazing crew with her signature dreamy, melancholy vocals. (Pro tip: These guys have been touring and recording without cease and are on the verge of breaking out nationally. Catch ’em at Orton for free while you can!)
Friday evening ends with another magical performance by Cycropia at 8:30 pm.
