This group combines a folk-rock sound with an orchestrated string section, soulful vocals and literate sensibility. Like their most recent album, Red-Winged Blackbird Man, the music is an eclectic mix of folk, gospel, blues and pop - described as melodic, delicate, dynamic and complex.
This Milwaukee indie rock band takes it name from frontman Mark Glatzel’s musings on the idea of the control – or lack of it - one has over life. Their sound is a blend of explosive drumrolls and crashes, sonic textures of piano and cello, warm vocal melodies and rich harmonies.
8:30pm - Something to do
Something To Do is the sweat soaked t-shirt you peel from your skin when you get home.
Something To Do is the cramp in your leg when you wake up in the morning.
Something To Do is the ringing in your ears that lingers for days.
Something To Do is ultra-catchy, high-energy, horn-driven rock that fans enjoy without any concern for how they'll feel the next day.
Something To Do’s (S2D) contest winning, duct-tape inspired song, "When I'm Stuck I Turn To Duck Tape", has brought the group national attention, being mentioned on CNN headline news, NPR and in over 150 other media outlets.
