Gear And Beer Fest Wisconsin #2 (free)

  • East Side Club 3735 Monona Drive Monona, WI, 53714 United States (map)

Madison musician/filmmaker/activist/recording engineer Wendy Schneider organized the first Gear And Beer Fest in January at Art In, and succeeded in creating a more welcoming and laid-back atmosphere than one usually finds at music gear-focused events. This time the event expands, with more vendors selling and swapping gear (which, at the first event, ranged from guitar pedals to a gnarly old sequencer I kind of regret not buying), but also DJs curated by the Half-Stack Sessions project, tables from local record labels including Kitschy Manitou and recent transplant Dirtnap, and workshops. Tone Madison is a sponsor of the event; we'll have a table there throughout the day, where you can come talk with our editors and pick up some free goodies. —Scott Gordon
