The Quickies, The German Art Students

  • High Noon Saloon 701 East Washington Avenue Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Madison band The Quickies broke up in 1999, but several of its members still play active roles in the local music community today—singer Anna Purnell in several outfits including Reptile Palace Orchestra, bassist/vocalist Lisa Marine in The Tiny Band, and drummer Pete Kaesberg in several more outfits, including his Neil Young tribute outfit Shakey. Here they'll join guitarist Blain Kennedy for a reunion set in their original lineup. The band played cutting, punk-fueled rock with occasional dashes of surf and country, and could also summon dark urgency on tracks like "Don't Touch Me," from the 1997 album Dying Of Happiness. They share the bill here with another veteran Madison band, effusive power-pop outfit The German Art Students. —Scott Gordon
