Wisconsin’s own “garbage folk” big-band, Holy Sheboygan, defies genres barriers and shows a similar disregard for the definition of "instruments." Structured as a jug band-like project, Holy Sheboygan implements winds, strings, trash, tape, and an assemblage of voices to produce a colorful, spirited collection of sounds and songwriting. Their 2017 release FOUR stretches the perception of an album. It incorporates what seems to be a compilation several persons’ ideas, stories, styles, all bound together with an appropriate looseness of a family-style aesthetic. Sharing the bill are adventurous Madison indie project Glassmen, and the scathingly witty, jangly Madison quartet Jonesies, who play their second-to-last show here. —Emili Earhart
