Get a daily rundown of the top stories on Urban Milwaukee

masonry photoMark’s guest this week in our continuing Milwaukee music series on the podcast is Masonry, a group elusive to easy labels. Are they math rock? Does that even mean anything? What does “rock and roll” even encompass?

Mark and the men of Masonry, Ed Osburg and Chris Valenti, discuss this age-old question and more, like why is Seattle just known for its grunge scene? And what happened to all of New York’s great indie clubs? And why, in the jazz age, did musicians from all around the country come to recruit drummers? And why do so many shows fail to generate not emotional responses but “goatee stroking-looks?”

Hear it all, and more, right here:

Catch Masonry at The Borg Ward on March 19, and catch our podcast every week by subscribing with iTunes.

More music next week!
