Half-Stack Sessions, Madison's advocacy group for women and non-binary people in music, hosts events for both members and non-members year-round, ranging from skill building workshops and socials to group discussions and a new monthly DJ series at the Nomad World Pub. For Half Stack's fall showcase this year, at all ages DIY space Communication, rather than simply curating a selection of pre-existing bands, the group's organizers and members decided to do something a little different. Last month, 18 musicians/members of Half-Stack—including members of Dash Hounds, Gentle Brontosaurus, Glassmen, and the sadly disbanded Exploration Team—entered their names to be randomly drawn into what would become six new bands. The new bands—Big Mood, 7-Pound Deathbird, The Meet Raffle, GlssGrrrl, Chuffed, and Polar Walkmen—will each play seven new and original songs for the event. You'll see a lot of familiar people from around the local music community, but what you'll hear is anyone's guess. —Katie Hutchinson
