The Trap Set LIVE Milwaukee
WMSE and Colectivo present: The Trap Set LIVE, Milwaukee.
Saturday, Nov. 26 at 8 p.m. at the Back Room at Colectivo Prospect.
Los Angeles based, Milwaukee native Joe Wong returns home to host an incredibly special evening of discussion among some of Milwaukee's most talented drummers. Guests include: Jon Mueller (Volcano Choir, Collections of Colonies of Bees, etc.), Dan Didier (Promise Ring, Maritime), Shane Hochstetler (Call Me Lightning, Bad Grades) and Victor DeLorenzo (Violent Femmes, Nineteen Thirteen).
THE TRAP SET is the world's most popular podcast and terrestrial radio show, (which airs exclusively on WMSE in the Milwaukee market) about the lives of drummers. Although the craft of drumming is discussed, it is a springboard for larger discussions about life. Now nearing its 100th episode, the show features a diverse roster of top-tier talent that spans genres, generations, and backgrounds. Because of the emphasis on human-interest stories, the show has cultivated an engaged audience of music fans and non-music-fans alike.
"Theres actually surprisingly little talk about the actual art of drumming...Thats cool, though: Its probably more fun for most Fugazi fans to hear the story of the one time Cantys dad showed up at a gig than to hear him talk about time signatures and hi-hat clutches." --AV CLUB
"Wong's The Trap Set is proof that drummers are eager to talk and have interesting stories to tell." --MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL
"I've been obsessed with The Trap Set podcast latelyit's not just for drummers, it's also by drummers. Host Joe Wong interviews some of the best percussionists of the past and present about their personal stories and spiritual and emotional connections to the drum set, rather than geeking out over gear, techniques, or chops." --CHICAGO READER
"Although the craft of drumming is sometimes discussed [The Trap Set] is primarily a springboard for broader topics such as: family, money, spirituality, love, travel, addiction, recovery, and the creative process." --MODERN DRUMMER
