Thursday, September 22 – Indie Rock Night with 88Nine Radio Milwaukee Featuring Big Thief with Special Guest Haley Bonar

Formed in Brooklyn, Big Thief’s debut album “Masterpiece” is filled with characters and visceral narratives, songs that pivot in the space of a few words.  Lead singer Adrianne Lenker’s voice and guitar playing speak of rich emotional territory with grace and insight.  Joining Big Thief is Haley Bonar, a fellow Midwesterner from Saint Paul, MN whose skillfully written songs are borne from her own memories and ideas for the sole interpretation of the listener.  Her latest album, “Impossible Dream” has been met with critical acclaim.
