The Madison 420 Fest

by Evan Verploegh
March 2014

Cannabis fans here in Madison will be able to ring in the holiday in style this year at the 4/20 Festival at The Brink Lounge. This event will benefit Madison NORML as well as The Ben Masel Project.  The celebration is hoping to promote marijuana awareness and will also feature two stages of live music from nine Madison and Midwestern bands.  The 2nd annual Festival will also have vending booths as well as non-profit tables for more information on marijuana reform.

“This is a celebratory event. A celebration and energization of all things cannabis, as well as a benefit for Madison NORML and the Ben Masel Project,” says Erik Riedasch, entertainment director for Madison NORML. “The bands are here because they want to be. We live in a city that is supportive of the cause, and accepting and we’re excited to be able to host this event again.”

A Roundup of Madison's Free Outdoor Music Festivals in June
by Mike Huberty
May 2016

When you’re living in the Midwest, the elements are never too far from your mind. The sunshine is a commodity and we jealously guard it, desperate not to waste the beautiful days and bummed out when the rain washes the fun away. You get a preview of Summer in April, maybe wearing shorts for the first time during the season. By the end of May you can carefully relinquish that sweatshirt you’ve been wearing. Then in June, it’s here. We finally get to be outside and it’s actually pleasurable. And that means that we’re going to throw some festivals with bands. Drinking beer and watching bands outside is as Madisonian as some dude asking for money at the end of State Street. And the best part is, almost all of them are free!

Pat Ferguson

April 2018

He isn’t new to the music scene, but Pat Ferguson has a new feeling about it. “There are exciting things happening right now for the groups coming out of Madison. Really exciting times around here,” Ferguson says.

And his own timing may be contributing to the excitement, as he is on the road promoting his first solo album, “Light of Day / Dark of Night,” after touring with a band for years. Pat also has a regular Wednesday night residency at HotelRED in Madison, which he says has helped fuel much of the material on the new album. Pat will be releasing the album for the first time at a show on April 27, 2018 at the Stoughton Opera House in Stoughton, and took time to answer our questions about this new stage of his career, and how he’s always been connected to music.

Paul Filipowicz

Wisconsin Blues Legend
by Dave Leucinger
September 2013

For guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Paul Filipowicz, making music isn’t about the big theatric shows at stadiums or huge halls. Although his shows are no less intense, his venue of comfort and familiarity is the American roadhouse – a rough-and-tumble venue for a rough-and-tumble style of music. “There are still quite a few out there – even some new ones,” he said in a recent telephone interview. “A lot are still out in the middle of nowhere. We just played at one in the middle of nowhere – Lohrville – it’s between Oshkosh and Stevens Point, outside of Redgranite. We got there at three – just the bartender and one of his staff there. We were set up on a trailer – and two hours later, there’s a hundred people there – many riding in on cycles. That’s one of the interesting things I’ve found about Wisconsin – you can get there when nobody is there, and two hours later, you have a big show.”
