Next up: Shank Hall with Canadian indie band Current Swell

If you're in the Milwaukee area on Monday, August 21st, you ought to make your way down to Shank Hall, by 8:00 pm.

The band Current Swell forms a last line of defense against book burners.
Or is it the books that have the band Current Swell's backs?
With delight, The Mike Benign Compulsion will serve as crowd fluffers for the venerable Current Swell from Victoria, British Columbia. Here's a little taste of what they do. The band has six albums under their belt, including the new one "When To Talk and When To Listen." Their Shank Hall appearance is part of a series of U.S. dates before the band heads overseas for a  European tour.

For these reasons and others, The Mike Benign Compulsion has come up with a three-point plan for the night:

1. Rock
2. Talk to the gents from Current Swell to understand how their country managed to elect such an awesome (and dreamy) prime minister.
3. Totally stand on guard for them.

That's it. See you soon!
