Madison-based musician Spencer Bible (Tippy, Christian Dior) hosts the annual Bluelight festival on a plot of family land about 40 miles west of Madison in Highland, Wisconsin. It reflects the eclectic mix of local and out-of-town bands that tend to show up in the shows Bible books in Madison, heavy on punk and weird electronic stuff but by no means restricted to those genres. Highlights this year include the shadowy electronic pop of Madison band Mori Mente, furious Dubuque noise-jazz duo Sex Funeral, adventurous Milwaukee hip-hop producer Randal Bravery, cosmic Madison drone outfit Midwaste, and L.A. ambient artist Kevin Greenspon. It's a lineup of about 30 bands over two days, and it should offer an unusual cross section of good local acts and the eccentric friends they've made on the road. Bible will be posting address details on the event's Facebook page. —Scott Gordon
