Saturday, June 2, 2012 | 7:00 PM Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall :: 4544 N. Lincoln Ave. Walter Salas-Humara, Julia Klee & Tim Schweiger A Tantrum Management Showcase $12 in advance, $14 at the door BOX OFFICE: 773.728.6000 Leader of seminal roots rockers The Silos, Walter Salas-Humara "has a deft songwriting touch, creating terse, stripped-down songs as elegant as Shaker furniture." The novelist and music fan Jonathan Lethem calls Salas-Humara "a melodic genius, one of our greatest songwriters." Julia Klee has been compared to the likes of Emmylou Harris with a songwriting style that is playful and a voice that is sometimes haunting. "Every once in awhile, we see a live show that's so transcendental in its scope, that takes the live venue and transforms it into a singular experience, where the voices of the crowd drops away, and the artist becomes a singular focus." - The Real Big Rock Candy Mountain "She's got pipes that rival Neko Case and Kelly Hogan." - Time Out Chicago Drawing from the deep well where punk, power pop and garage rock meet, Wisconsin native Tim Schweiger's sound is fresh, yet familiar. "His overall vibe comes off like a post-grunge Dwight Twilley, though it also recalls early-'70s proto-metal, self-deprecating downtempo reflections and pre-Green Day pop-punk." - ExpressMilwaukee.com
