Recent and Upcoming Shows

Elmer and the Ceramic Trees, Prone to Sorrow, and Mystery Mirrors were among the bands that performed on Record Store Day (Saturday, April 22) at the Exclusive Company in Janesville. The same three bands will appear on Saturday, April 29 at Blue Devil’s Challenge Arcade, 26 W. Main St., Evansville, WI. Show starts at 7:30 pm; there is a $5 cover charge.

Mystery Mirrors has undergone a metamorphosis: Jesse Ramirez, who sings and plays guitar, is now the frontman in a four-piece band including Sean Kappes on bass, Aaron Messier on keyboards, and Jesse Veek on drums. The sound is amazing! Their Facebook page sports a dandy video of the band playing “Ocean Eyes” from their show at Exclusive.
