It’s Guided By Voices Day!

12 Oct

UPDATES!! You can read Pat O’Brien’s review of the show on City Pages here. See Staciaann’s slideshow of photos on City Pages here. The first and only time I saw GBV was back in 1996 when I was a freshman at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire.  I vaguely remember seeing a band whose […]

Cake In 15 Welcomes Pat O’Brien!

14 Jul

Pat O’Brien is a local freelance writer who has written about music, film and once, a house that Michael Graves designed. When he isn’t writing he is often seen at shows or at something or other around town. His first published work was a CD review of Imogen Heap’s ‘I Megaphone’ for his college newspaper. […]

The Great “First Ave Stars” Debate – Who Should Go?

6 Jun

So yeah, there’s a lot of freaking out about First Avenue painting over (temporarily!) the stars on the outside of the building.  The venue is moving from 530ish stars to closer to 400.  You can even go to their website here and vote for some possible new stars to be added to the wall. With […]

The Shouting Matches Cover Son House

4 Jun

Pitchfork and Gimme Noise posted this video of The Shouting Matches, which is Bon Iver‘s Justin Vernon and Peter Wolf Crier‘s Brian Moen, covering the Son House classic “Death Letter”. It’s a grinding, noisy affair, which seems to surprise the ‘Fork, but we’ve been to Wisconsin so we know it’s not all moping around in […]

Picking Up Crumbs: Colin Hay

24 May

Colin Hay just might be the best stand-up comedian I have seen in a long time, not to mention a damn fine solo performer. For the first of two sold-out nights at the Cedar Cultural Center on Friday, for the hour we were at the venue, the former Men At Work frontman played only four […]

Peter Wolf Crier Press Release

13 May

We here at CakeIn15 probably fall into the “Lovers” category, at least “Friends” and we are proud to be one of the sponsors of the Inter-Be release show, given that Staciaann has done the lion’s share of their promo photography. But we also just love the tone of this press release. To the point and […]

Punk Rock Prom V

1 May

Alright, so a couple weeks ago, we sat down with members of the fillmores and The Debut to talk about Punk Rock Prom V: Pretty Shitfaced in Pink, tonight at the Nomad World Pub. It was after rehearsals were done and Pancho Villa had 2-for-1 margaritas going and so as the people around our table […]

Cymbals Eat Guitars

1 May

Cymbals Eat Guitars frontman Joseph D’Agostino sometimes goes by Joe Ferocious, a name that pretty well describes D’Agostino’s incendiary, fuzzy guitar talent as well as Cymbal Eat Guitar’s touring schedules. Cymbals Eat Guitars have been tour beast over the last year, ever since their strong debut Why They Are Mountains and an opening spot at […]

Picking Up Crumbs: Jonsi

26 Apr

In the matchup of weekend double-headers, with DeVotchKa/Gogol Bordello at First Ave going up against Jónsi at the Pantages, the Sigur Rós frontman walked away with an epic win. Not only is his high tenor a thing of strange, fluid beauty, but the stage show, complete with projected animations, flashing lights and an amazing backing […]

DeVotchKa and Gogol Bordello

26 Apr

Call me old and cynical, but I’ve seen it before. Yes, there is no denying that Gogol Bordello can whip a crowd into a sweaty, howling mess and DeVotchKa‘s melodies can bring a man to his knees and beg forgiveness, but at First Avenue on Saturday night, everything just seemed overly familiar, the same shows […]
